Week 49 2016


Following on from my successful shop at the market in Castillon for my Christmas cake I set to and made my cake this weekend.

I never make the same cake twice, and this year's recipe was chosen as it has dried figs and we had a bumper crop from our tree this year. The cake is now wrapped up safely and will be fed weekly until Christmas is here.

The Pre-Christmas season is picking up speed and there are plenty of Christmas markets in the region to visit this weekend.  Don't hesitate to let me know if there is anything near you that you would like me to include.

Whatever you do in Gironde and Dordogne, have a great weekend.
Best wishes,

Week 49
