These chickens were hatched today at our home in Perigord. The proud father is our cockerel, Sarko, and the mum who sat dutifully on the eggs for three weeks was Angela Merkel, although not all the eggs came from her. In the other chicken coop we are awaiting a clutch of new-born pheasants.
Enjoyed a very pleasant lunch in St Pompont with three new friends, Klaus, Mathilde, and Anna, who have started a company to organise gastro-tourism to the Perigord for English and German speakers.
The trick is that since they all work in the summer months, they are aiming at the low seasons of Spring and Fall.
But they know the area well, know their food, and know their Perigord history and culture. They will include truffle hunts with a friend of mine, Eduard Ayrou. It's a great idea and I wish them well. Check them out on cyranoreisen.jimbo.com
