And a partridge in a pear tree...

Christmas in France is always fun ... the lights, the decorations, the houses, the markets, the food and wine. This year was no different. After the shocking trip over to France from the UK and lack of last minute tickets back by train to london, I spent a lovely time eating my way through the 24th and 25th of December 2006.

Shall i run through a menu with you?

Soft Cheeses
Little breads with various toppings
Oysters a plenty too many to count (think 48 and you'll be on target)
Prawns cooked in garlic and cognac
Foie Gras
Buche de Noël (but an ice cream verion)
Lots of cheese and bread
15 year old champagne
Australian Red Wine
Portuguese White Wine (Gazelo - nice and light like a spritz)
Poruguese Porto White

antacids for dessert! :)
