Such a wonderful day was it: brilliant opportunity to visit the Second Delissime food fair in Limoges. Unfortunately, I could not taste the wines being driving afterwards, but what a real delish was the food tasting. The Pavillion, where the faire took place, was not big, nevertheless it took me about 4 hours just to walk around, take a few pictures and of course try one or two things. The artisans-producers , who participated in the fair were specially selected for high quality and originality of their products from all over France. It was great to talk to some of them and to exchange addresses. Delissime is one not to miss the next year!
And the main course tonight is……
Pork Filet mignon , sauce made with Limousin Cider and mustard Violette ( local product at Brive de Gaillarde) , roast potatoes and Local apples “Golden” – speciality of Limousin region
Yes , the summer is coming and we are very much on a BBQ mode! Marinated for 24 hrs in a special Shashlik * marinade pork can be cooked just under the grill (if weather does not permit barbecue)
* Shashlik – is what we call BBQ in Russia, with a difference that we never use coal or gas, it is always a proper and tastier way: over the wood.
