If I find a meal I enjoy on my travels, then I try to recreate it when time allows. Have you been successful in importing a meal that makes a pleasant surprise for the folks back home ? I never did try the Chinese "Fish Head Soup" or the "Chicken Porridge".

A number of times we've found dishes or cooking methods that have become part of our routine at home--but I'll pass on this one because (among other things) the particular fish needed are only available here at prices that would make you think they flew first-class! But we have continued to make the meat-stuffed zucchini we learned in our Bologna cooking class two years ago. No shortage of domestic zucchini!

Aix is a favorite with us, even though we've spent only limited time there...but long enough to have posted a Picture of the Day featuring the local market , not far from the scene of your picture...it's really a great walking town.

I recently had an Airbnb guest from the south of France. He's in the process of selling his long-time home in a fashionable place and plans to buy an apartment in Marseille. I think it's another indicator that the city has come a long way and clearly with intent. I look forward to visiting.

Just like the Cornish Riviera - with French rural architecture. Once you have a taste for living by the sea - its hard to be drawn away.

The pictures are so nice. We never thought that Marseilles looked like this. We thought it was a dreary port town. This makes us rethink any trips to the south of France. If we were to go hiking, how many days would be good there ? 2 ? 3 ? Thanks.

Thanks for this. You gave me the idea to book the Eurostar for our train travel from Cologne, Germany via Brussels, to London.

Autumn: A season for soup

When the weather turns cool and the leaves start to fall, it always seems time for soup. Not that there aren't wonderful summer soups—gazpacho and cold plum soup come to mind—but fall and winter are the true soup seasons.
