Domaine de la Bergerie – lovely wines and a great restaurant
We’re happy to add another local producer to our Loire wine tastings this year, Domaine de la Bergerie in Anjou.
Easy vegetarian and vegan recipes – spinach & chickpea pasties
I’ve been playing around with vegan recipes a bit over the past few weeks and this recipe (in a slightly different form), was given to me by English friends Nettie and David. I’ve fiddled around with it a bit and made a few changes including the addition of cumin. It makes a lovely lunch served with baby new potatoes and some slow roasted tomatoes.
Favourite restaurants in Angers – Le Relais
For true French style, great food and a good wine list, Le Relais in Angers is hard to beat.
Le Dix Septième Angers
Le dix septième is a ‘restaurant bistronomique’ (their words not mine) that opened in Angers last year. Just a couple of steps away from the 400 Coups cinema it’s an old town house that has been refurbished. A beautiful old stone staircase leads upstairs to 3 separate dining rooms each one leading off the other.
