Food Week II: Manger

24 Jun

I really enjoyed dedicating a whole week of posts to my passion for food blogs last year so have decided to bring it back with my favourite five discoveries over the past 12 months. Welcome to Food Week II!

You know a food blogger is good when you don’t just want their cooking, you want their life! Mimi Thorisson moved to the stunning Médoc in France a year and a half ago and Manger is a mouthwatering journey through her family’s new adventure.

Her bacon is fatty, her whelks are wriggly and her fish has heads on. In an age of cling-wrapped supermarket produce and schoolchildren who don’t know where eggs come from, I respect her a lot for that.

That’s not to say there isn’t a lot of prettiness to be found… oh and there’s a good helping of gratuitous cute puppy pictures too, which obviously gets Manger an extra vote from me!

So, if you love food, France, flowers (and puppies) head over to Manger and follow Mimi’s Médoc journey.

Don’t forget to tune in tomorrow for the next installment of Food Week…

    I so love the idea of your food week and particularly love this post as I too have moved to live in France (only 5 months !) and country living here is so amazing and so different. Freshly picked Girolles last night for supper on
