Gene Weingarten, writing in the Washington Post about online news stories and the accompanying readers' comments: "I basically like 'comments,' though they can seem a little jarring: spit-flecked rants that are appended to a product that at least tries for a measure of objectivity and dignity. It's as though when you order a sirloin steak, it comes with a side of maggots."

I am not certain there are too many from the south of France any more - at least who live there on a permanent basis and still post.


I have the same issue with my corner of the world - Nova Scotia where apparently I am currently the only resident. No wonder my taxes are so high.

Looking through earlier posts, many people seem to come to Paris, eat in the great restaurants with lots of Michelin stars and then move on. May I recommend taking the TGV south to Montpellier and then taking a taxi out to Bouzigues, where a shack on the beach next to the family oyster packing shed will serve you oysters just pulled from the sea? Very tasty.

I'm sure Nova Scotia has equally interesting offerings.

Hi, @Chris Ward,


It's good to see you in the forum.


We used to have a valued member here who lived and cooked in France. His name was Dave Hatfield, and he did three food blogs for us. Sadly, he is now deceased, but I really enjoyed hearing about his experiences. You may have come across them already, but if not, here are the links: one, two and three. I like them so much I reread them from time to time. I know I'm not the only one who here who agrees that we sorely him and his contributions.
