Week 19 2018


All the acacia trees are coming out in bloom filling the air with their sweet scent.  Perfect time to indulge in a little sweet treat - the beignet d'acacia.  The Bonhoste marche de la Ferme wouldn't be complete without them. 

Here's the recipe from CuriousProvence in case you want to make them yourself!  Personally, I leave it to the people who know how...

Whatever you do this week in the Gironde and Dordogne regions, have a great time.
Best wishes,
