Food glorious food, or rather “Promenade en Gastronomy Daglan 2017”. Our first impression of the event was the unmistakable aroma of roasting chicken and paella which permeated our home last Sunday morning. Our cat Angel sitting by the front door and licking her lips was also a sure sign that the Gastronomy Sunday was up and running.
The Paella and roast chicken stall made using our front door interesting to say the least and keeping the shutters closed reduced the temptation for our cats to go on secret raids. I had visions of Angel dragging a whole roast chicken home.
The side door was also temporarily blocked by a large white van being unloaded. No problem we waited for the lane to clear to enjoy the experience.
For Sunday lunch we could have lowered a basket from the balcony.
Le Place De La Liberté was packed with stalls offering various types of food and drink.
Long queues of locals and tourists were forming to buy the produce.
Tempted by truffles, these looked so good.
The forest materialised the day before for the truffle dog demonstration. Such a gorgeous dog who found the truffles in record time, but I think that the aroma of chicken, sausage and paella was a great distraction.
The Boulangerie stall selling various types of bread.
One simply cannot have a Gourmand Sunday without garlic.
Or wine, this is just one of the many stalls selling wine.
Perhaps a little too much wine (or beer), but it looked like great fun.
