Glorious Gastronomic Trip to Burgundy

Back in June we went to Burgundy for a long weekend of delicious food and wine. We were treated fantastically by the weather Gods as the sun shone down like a reliable angle poise - almost changing direction when it started to make you squint.

I don't want to write a long post - I simple wanted to share a few shots These are from Avallon market. The produce on display was stunning...

Apricots on offer

With such fantastic produce we all got very excited about cooking in our respective teams. Cowie and David teamed up to cook a blindingly good cote de bouef...

The whole holiday was idyliic. Sheer bliss. I wish I could snap my fingers and be back there right now sipping a nice glass of Puligny Montrachet having just gone for a swim in the river.
