We had previously dismissed the idea of baking cakes and biscuits whilst away, but thought that it was worth a go before we pack everything away and send it back to the UK. After a couple of slightly dodgy looking batches (although they still taste lovely), I have managed to perfect oat, raison and chocolate chip cookies and gooey chocolate brownies 🙂
We will now happily be rolling our way round Europe…. the baking utensils are staying with us 🙂
Whilst chatting to Sandro, one of our neighbours opposite here in Bagnoles, on the way down to the Boulongerie the day after we got back from our trip to Brittany, he told me to wait whilst he went a got a jar of homemade blackberry jam to go with our croissants – it was very good.
On top of that, last night we were invited to Sandro and his wife Michelle’s house for an Italien meal. Hmm, mmm. Homemade pizza slices to start with, followed my homemade pasta for the main. After that came the cheese board and then a chocolate dessert that came from the local boulongerie/patiserie which were equally as good. Yes, there was more as we then finished off with some homemade macarons, all washed down with some very nice Italian wine. Yes, we were very spoilt indeed.
