Feasting on French Fare...

Can you believe that I got these at the little fruit shop in Carlisle Street... how good is this? French wild mushrooms (at wild prices) and they smell like the earth itself... just a couple of handfuls made my sauce the best thing ever... good fillet steak from Leon's (also on Carlisle Street) and a potatoe, sugar snap peas, tomato, bacon and pesto salad and dinner was divine... Oh and did I mention... I painted this plate myself!?!?!?

Actually I can believe it. I was at Elliot's (1001 Diners 1001 Nights) on Sunday and Sandra had a bag of them from what must be the same shop. I'm over there too now.

Oh... very nice.

Which store??

I'm a Leons fan as well, always great service and that smoked chicken breast that really has been smoked -not smoke flavoured. Did you ever bu the smoked pork neck? They have stopped making it because it w not popular enough. A sad day in my book.

Jackie, it's the one right on the crossing lights, near the walk through to Coles. It's on the last check out, a small wooden box holding a kilo - following your nose!! Sorry about the pork nect, would have loved some for my rustic bean soup. Chicken great for sure! Vida x

Thanks Vida.

Thats my greengrocer of choice as well, but I have never seen them there. Did you mention thats its a certain day of the week?
I always buy their loose mini roma tomatoes, a cheap way to get delicious tomatoes throughout the year and I also have to always buy the white zuchinis.

Thanks for the tips!

Jackie, Elliot had missed out and then told there would be more on Tuesday... There is only one tiny 1 kilo box that sits on the last checkout counter... you are welcome, let's coffee and celebrate, any excuse!!! Vida x
