Bon Appetit!

Who knew the food and wine in France would be so wonderful and we would eat so much?

Jackie has invited me, Dona, to guest-blog the food and wine experience of our trip.

Most days our tour provided two large, multi-hour meals starting with an aperitif or a glass of champagne.

As the salads arrived, both red and white wine were put on the table.

Salads were a meal in themselves. One salad Jackie didn’t care for, the creamy cheesy tomato yogurt-textured one. So I ate two.

And bread was always on the table.

By this point, we are an hour into the meal having had the apertif, a big salad, multiple glasses of wine and multiple pieces of bread. We are full and out comes the main course (most main courses were lamb or fish but their vegetarian meals were excellent, too).

Dessert next? No! Then out comes the cheese platter and more bread. Keep in mind the wine is always flowing.

Two hours into the meal out comes the truly wonderful dessert.

Only one dessert in eight days was questionable.

Here comes the coffee.

Lunches were served from 1 to 3 PM and dinners from 8:30 to 10:30 PM.

Since this is really a Wooly Adventures blog, it would not be complete without a sheep eating. The French hay must be as good as our meals were from the look of these enthusiastic eaters.

  2. Hi Dona, and Friend!
    Wow! What a treat, just scrolling through this post! I am so envious!
    I’ve been reading all the posts, but I had to comment on this one. This makes me want to get in the kitchen and make a gourmet meal! I can’t wait to see all your pictures when you get back.
    Your trip looks like so much fun!

  3. Aw man, now you’ve got me hungry. I’ll have to go cook something in your honor. Maybe a little Dijon chicken and chocolate mousse. Maybe even open a bottle of champagne, pardonnez-moi, I mean sparkling wine. à la vôtre!

  4. Wow that is amazing. Thanks for letting Dona blog. How’s the wine Dona? Is it local wines?

  5. Thank you so much for this great travel blog! The food pics and sheep faces were a wonderful end to the travels.

    • Hey, Linda, thanks for coming along! It was, as you read and saw, a fantastic experience.
