Wow! I am full of admiration, mixed with a dash of envy. You can write, photograph, choose restaurants and order well, too!

Magnifique! I've always wanted to do this, but never have.

Our most memorable travel moments continue to be those spent at the table, and I'm envious of this wonderful collection.

Thanks for sharing.

Thank you for giving permission to use your photos. I haven't had time to devote to the ppt this evening, but I was able to right click on one of the photos. I don't think I'll have a problem adding it to my existing food ppt.

You should have seen how the grocery store manager laughed at me when I told him what I wanted to do. I actually walked down the majority of aisle taking pictures of grocery store items. My students are amused by the similarities and differences found at the supermarché.

Another vote for Lyons de Bruxelles. "Fish and Chips" Parisian style.

moldy - sounds like your French classes are a lot more interesting than the ones I sat through
worldinabag - interestingly, the service and attention has always been marginal each time we visit Lyons however, the mussels make up for it. We had trouble getting mayo for the frites last time. I know this is a Dutch custom, but not French?
tuscan - thank you
tower - we will return to Dordogne. We loved the area. I agree that StCirq is a very valuable resource
Josh - the only comment we have ever had was the owner of Maurice's Hotel said something to me in French when I took a picture. I was unable to catch it but the gentleman at the next table said it was a saying that translated to something like "Keeping a memory of something is only second best to experiencing it first hand". He added that Maurice was flattered that I would think enough of his food to photograph it.

robjame, your comment to Josh has me thinking. I assume you use a flash when you take those photos?

Hi Anselm - How are things in NS? I miss those Digby scallops.
My camera is set to flash if there is not enough available light - sometimes it does, sometimes not. I notice I get better photos when I remember to set it to macro close up (and when I haven't had too much wine). BTW your photos are fantastic. You put me to shame. You inspired me to try some flower close ups at the Alpine garden in Jardin des Plantes which turned out not bad.

I can see how the wine intake might affect the quality of the photographs, LOL. I took several photos in Beijing with the autofocus turned off and I was as sober as a judge at the time.

It's interesting, too, that the only comment from an owner has been positive, despite the flash going off.

NS is fine, at least it was when I left a few days ago. I am spending a couple of days with my dad, who just had his 98th birthday. He made his own birthday cake!

Thanks for the comments on the flower pictures. Another season is upon us so I hope to add a few more.

Le Relais de Cinq Chateau just made it to my short list for our September/October trip. (We'll be coming from Loire on our way to Spain, but can't miss a chance to re-visit the Dordogne for a couple days.)

Your reviews couldn't come at a better time. If things go well, we'll be taking the Peter Deilmann Princess de Provence next April from Lyon to Arles and back to Lyon. While we'll be eating dinner on the boat, our plan is to enjoy lunch in town.

I hate to wish my life away, but those pictures are giving me pause.
