We are staying for a week in St Chinian, a small town in the wine region of Languedoc. We are in a lovely apartment overlooking the town square which has a fantastic market on Sunday and Thursday. Very hot here, 30 plus degrees every day.

View of the market from our window:

Now, we hear it has been really cold in NZ, so in the next thrilling instalment we’ll give you the recipe for an amazing peasant/farmhouse white bean and sausage stew that we whipped up. Bound to keep the cold out!!
