Thank you, thousands !

June 9th, 2008

Mid June - can it be two years already? This week vagabondgourmand celebrates its second year, and I want to thank the thousands of visitors, readers, those who have “dipped in” and many who return regularly to this site. We have covered a lot of ground together, from Greek almond groves in the spring of 2007 to Catalonian markets, not to forget Vézelay, Paris and Arles. Your comments and queries are so appreciated on whatever subjects turn up on these pages. And what is around the bend for the vagabondgourmand? This week, the Clafoutis du Jour will be a blend of nectarines, almonds and black currants - the recipe to be posted on Friday for the weekend. This summer, we head north to visit markets in Metz and Verdun, then south to the Vaucluse to talk with an almond grower about green almonds and to linger in Apt’s market. Yes, almondology is an on-going theme, whatever the season. In July, watch for notes on the Cognac country, where we will talk with a vintner about Pineau des Charente and ramble through Angoulême’s hilltop market. July will also be the month to romance a French heirloom, with stories about the Marmande tomato. There will be notes from this garden about Edible Borders as well as comments on local produce as the seasons change. So, more wine talk (has been requested) and more on vegetables, from the roots up will be posted. Again, thanks - wherever and whoever you are - Merci mille fois….grazie mille !
