This is somewhat out of character for this blog, but I wanted to point anyone who might care to a restaurant in the tiny medieval town of Le Castellet in Provence should you happen to be in this splendid part of France.
La Farigoule is tucked away behind a small church in the centre of the feudal village which film aficiandos will know as the setting for Marcel Pagnol's "The Baker's Wife" starring Raimu. It serves typical provencal dishes that are simple, aromatic and flawlessly prepared. I had Les petits farcis provencaux et leur bouillon au basilic to start, Le magret de canard grillé et sa palette de garnitures, sauce vin rouge as my main course and La crème brulée à l'amandine et sa glace au nougat . The table in this picture is the one my colleagues and I from other WPP companies occupied last night.
