It's strawberry season now in the Loire Valley. All the local varieties of strawberries are showing up in the markets now. They're still a bit pricey, but the prices will come down in the next few weeks.

These lovely berries were part of our great lunch with Jean and Nick in Le Grand-Pressigny. I don't know their provenance, but we enjoyed them.


  1. My dad used to always say that strawberries were better than sex. I think maybe twice in my life I had berries that were so good I might have agreed with him!

  2. The strawberry season is upon us therefore winter must surely be over !!!!

  3. cubby, really good strawberries are really good. I've always loved them.

    jean, Yay!

    starman, why, thank you! ;)

  4. Reminds me of your Facebook status about asperges -- I must get into spring food now!

  5. stephen, yup!

    betty, hurry, before it's too late!


Pour your heart out! I'm listening.
