Bordeaux Sun

Finally, a large dose of sun overexposure in the beautiful region of "Entre-Deux Mers".  Meaning "in between 2 seas", t is a region featuring 2 major rivers.  La Dordogne river in particular is a delight to swim in, all light and clear and very slow in some places.
Fresh herbs for foraging are plentiful as this is a wetter climate than the riviera, all the better for landscape diversity.
The Bay leaves are from the herbalist medieval garden at La Sauve-Majeure and will do extremely well in the next ratatouille.
