A lot of our local restaurants have taken holidays in the post-Christmas lull, including our first choice for today's post. Undaunted, we drove the 16km to Forcalquier in the never-ending search for lunch and settled ourselves in the sun in front of the Café du Commerce in the town's main square.
I have to confess here that I forgot to take a photo of the soup, but it looked pretty much like the soup we had at Nice Airport the day we left for our Christmas holidays - even the bowls were the same!
The salmon came with pasta and vegetables. I liked the way this was presented, the veggies were thinly sliced and lightly cooked and then tossed up with the pasta, with no heavy sauce or anything. All very light and healthy and it definitely didn't overpower the salmon.
I went for the old reliable Creme caramel...
This was our first Thank Friday It's Lunchtime lunch of 2013. The sun shone, the food was simple, French and good, the town square was delightful - where else but France will you find a gorgeous old building like this housing the local Cinéma?
Yes, it's good to be back.
