Best of Foodie Bordeaux

Fabulous freshly baked bread.
Posting by Kitchen Delights Roving Reporter

Taking time to appreciate and enjoy gorgeous food and wine is what truly makes up the DNA of the French as a nation. As I walked past the numerous coffee shops and restaurants in Bordeaux, it is easy to sense a laid back attitude to life, and why not with all the great food waiting to be eaten.  It was whilst I was in this frame of mind that I made a visit to Quai des Chartrons Bordeaux - a small but perfectly formed food market located next to the river Garonne.

Pastries and brioche fresh from the oven.
Beautiful Figs
A huge pan of snails bubbling away in wine and tomatoes.
With an abundance of fresh produce one can easily gather the necessities for a picnic hamper, whether it's fresh bread, fruits, meats or even snails and team it up with a superb bottle of red wine.  Take the hamper of fresh foods and wine down to the river, take part in a little people watching and savour the moment.  Don't forget your wineglasses!

I would happily scoff the lot...until I got to the photo of the snails!
Happy new year!
