Across to Alsace
We’ve spent the last few days driving across northern France from Paris to Alsace, staying in various lovely farmhouses with friendly people on the way. We’ll write more about each one when we get a moment, but we’ve seen (and eaten or drunk) home-made products from black pudding to Munster cheese to eau de vie.
Plus (in the week that the US ordered the largest-ever recall of commercial beef) met some of the happiest small-farm veal calves there can be. And discovered that Alsace makes some of the nicest white wines we’ve ever had, and one or two truly rank vinegary reds.
