In France we swapped chocolate filled mini croissants for regular ones and traded Spanish bread for baguettes and many types of cereales filled bread. Influenced by what we experienced when staying with Yves and Ingrid our cooking has become a little more French as well. This is what we ate in one day in France. Out of interest this was also the day we saw someone with a donkey crossing a river in the Cevennes a la Robert Louis Stevenson (we think they were a tourist!).
Croissants (we’re in France, you’ve got to have them…), apple and pear porridge with rhubarb jam on top.
Very long sugary pastry with nuts on top, espressos with biscuits.
Baguettes, potatoe tartlet and sprits (giant shortbreads).
Boiled potatoes with salad and two types of grilled goats cheese (prepared on dusk at a minty free-camp), pain aux chocolat, pain aux raisin
