St Omer French Market – Nord Pas de Calais

Let’s get one thing straight, I love France, their whole obsession with produce and the ease with which they display it and the preparation of food, is a constant source of wonderment to me.
The very best way to experience this, as in most cultures, is to visit a French market. I’ve been visiting the Saturday morning market in St Omer for a few years now and this weekend made the special trip to celebration Spring, have lunch and source some delicious delicacies for the larder.

Chez Elles Bistroquet – French Bistro in Brick Lane

A little corner of Paris in Georgian London…
We’ve been following the very successful Huguenot Festival in Spitalfields this month and came across what sounded like a promising French bistro in the unlikely setting of Brick Lane. Well why not? Just because Brick Lane has been synonymous with curry houses for the past couple of decades doesn’t mean things can’t change.
