• Table d’Olivier, Samatan, Gers, France

    Pannacota
    Our wonderful mate, Deirdre, invited us for dinner last month to probably the best restaurant in the Gers. We eat out quite a lot and I can say unreservedly that this restaurant serves superb, quality food, beautifully presented, imaginative and deelicious. I highly recommend it!

  • A sad day

    My sincere condolences to all the families and friends lost in the terrible attack in Paris last night. It's unbelievable what the human species is capabale of doing. The wonderful student, Mathilde, told us today that everyone was lighting a candle in their windows today to show solidarity, so we have done the same. Our thoughts and prayers are with all of you.

  • Lena's Potato Salad

    Lena's Potato Salad

  • Lena’s Polish Gherkin Soup / Zupa ogorkowa

    Lena's Gherkin Soup
    What, you say? A Gherkin soup? Never heard of it and don’t want it. Stop right there. It is SUPERB to say the very least. Lena and Dieter are deevine campervan friends and she made this for us 2 years ago and today and it was as great today as it was 2 years ago.

  • Pizza dough recipe

    This is not quite a traditional pizza dough recipe as we add cooked potatoes to the dough, but I promise you, once you’ve tried it, you won’t want it any other way!
