Easter Weekend

It was a very busy Easter weekend indeed, Libby’s parents Jane and Dave arrived on Good Friday for their first visit to the Bordeaux region, and of course Libby and I introduced them not only to the area but the local cuisine too!

We began the gastronomic weekend by barbequing duck hearts on the Friday evening, a visit to St.Emilion on the Saturday and as Henry and Kaye were also in town we fired up the bread oven to roast the Easter Lamb in the evening!

The Sunday we decided to eat at the Comptoir wine bar in St.Genes where we had a lovely meal and shared a stunning bottle of Chateau d’Aghuilhe 2004.

The Fair was in town on Monday and the sunny warm weather made a great morning wandering through the weekly food market in the heart of the Castillon-La-Bataille. Libby’s selected a perfect wild rabbit for lunch and some extraordinary (but not cheap!) cheeses.

I would like to say a big thanks to Jane and David for making it a great weekend and a ‘bon continuation’ for the rest of their holiday and travel back towards the UK!
