You will find a collection of stories on my Google Reader page, which features recent stories from blogs dotted across France.
Here are some picks:
La Fête du Fromage: November Round Up - Chez Loulou
I tasted Le Lacandou last summer and was reminded of it last week when I drove by Sévérac-le-Château on my way home from visiting Betty in Aveyron. This is a young cheese with a delightful grassy and fruity flavor. It comes highly recommended!
Two fine cheeses - Podtours
And Vieux Lille. This is a cheese you could wrap several times in clingfilm, put in a zip-lock bag, heat-seal into a plastic box, and lock in a safe, and you’d still be able to smell it at a hundred yards.
Will I go vegan in rural France? France and The Unknown
Even though some people say it would be ridiculous to live here and be vegan I want to test it out and see if I could make it work. And my mother is more convinced than ever that I am going to starve to death.
Last Flight of a World War II B-26 - Americans in France
The morning of November 13, 1944 was foggy, rainy and cold, not flying weather. Especially not for a B-26 bomber, known as a 'widowmaker'. Under certain conditions, such as icing, the plane could vibrate violently and become unstable.
The online game of trust - Kolet ink
My French co-workers were mildly horrified to hear that I had added many a Facebook friend with the click of my mouse, never to have any contact with them ever again.
