I must admit this has been quite a though week. A project which we've been working on for a while, and which looked almost closed, is proving to be much more elusive than we thought. Luckily, I can take this weekend off, and tomorrow after my morning visit to the market I'm taking the family and running off to Fitou, a cozy little town in Languedoc-Roussillon, just past Perpginan and altogether about 250 km. from Barcelona, center to the Appellation d’Origine Contrôlée with the same name.
So what's there, you might ask? Well, wine, as I've said. And food, quite a lot of it actually. Mostly local oysters which are not that bad considering the price. Local fish is good if you know where and when to buy. Same goes for wine. We also get really good bread from a bakery in Perpignan (Why oh why can't we have bread like this in Barcelona?), and cheese and charcuterie from a few places in the area.
But most of all, good friends who live there and will always welcome us with a smile.
