Pumpkin Time

Market day in medieval Sarlat and the beautiful mid Autumn sunshine makes for a great excuse to publish a few autumnal photos taken from last Saturday morning.

Pumpkin and Squash - 'tis the season. The French love pumpkin. In fact we all love pumpkin right?
Roasted, mashed and particularly soup, It's the numero uno autumn vegetable.

Let's not forget the humble walnut. It's a main crop here in the Dordogne. The Perigord has been through leaner times and there was no better way to obtain plentiful calories than through the nut and its derivatives.  Who doesn't love a salad dressed with walnut oil?
