My first trip to France was a six-month stay in Aix-en-Provence more than 50 years ago. My second was a nine-month stay in Rouen in 1972-73. Arriving in Rouen, I think that in my mind I was returning to Aix. It turned out that the two cities are in totally different worlds. They have one thing in common, however: beautiful and delicious food. Here are some photos of food that I've taken in Rouen over the past 20 years.
Tout ça est bien appétvissant. Il n’y a que l’embarras du choix!ReplyDelete
That seafood platter / plateau de fruits de mer was amazing. Marie in Rouen served it once when I went to dinner at her house.Delete
Yes! I wished I had it right in front of me right now. Doesn’t matter if it’s six in the morning!Delete
Just catching up with your posts of the past week. Love this whole series on Rouen and your time there.ReplyDelete
Ha! Once again, I see that one of your photos is one that I've been using for teaching, without realizing that it was yours... just came up in a Google image search! It's the storefront photo of the charcuterie, near the end of the slide show.ReplyDelete
That's funny, isn't it? Glad tp know.Delete
The seafood platter at our friend's home was amazing.ReplyDelete
