Every country has their own selection of traditional dishes. These soup recipes from France will give you a taste of Gallic cuisine.

We have travelled to France on a number of occasions. And every visit has been a gastronomic discovery.

Other occasions have been an extraordinary adventure. Trying to get through Paris on the Metro to the Beauvais Tillé Airport.

Unfortunately, this is not one of the most straightforward of journeys and we missed our flight.

Even more unfortunately, our flight had been with Ryan Air. And the next svailable flight was the following day. Zut Alors!

Somehow, me managed to wangle our way onto a later flight that day. But this was a flight to Prestwick and not Edinburgh, where we had left the car.

Yes, we got home to Scotland but, actually getting home to our house cost a very expensive taxi from Prestwick to Edinburgh in the early hourse of the morning.

However, we prefer to journey to Spain and have, therefore, developed a taste for Spanish Food.
