First, a moment to remember Notre Dame... The end of one era and a beginning of a new...
Now, on to our post...
Nourriture, (pronounce noo-ri-ture) Food in English, is something the French are famous for, with good reason. I love, love, love to eat in France, even if sometimes what they think is delish, I think is disgusting! I’m sorry, I don’t do snails. Yes, I know, I’m missing out, but sorry. Just don’t do them.

But I do eat duck. I’ve also eaten gizzards, which I’d never tried before, and many other things. But mostly cheese and the pastries is what I miss when I come home. The cheeses here are not the same and the variety, well, it is getting better in the US, but still pales in comparison to France’s selections as do the pastries, which aren’t too sweet or filled with lots of chemicals. Just my preference. So, I’m posting a few photos of different dishes, shops, etc., all having to do with food in some way. I hope you enjoy them! Bon Appetit!

And where does one go to buy these kinds of foods? Why to the market of course! This day we went to Le marché Carmes in Toulouse.
