STRANGE BLOG CONTINUATION PART III

A STRANGE SUBJECT IS THERE TO WRITE ABOUT

We continue today with more strange subjects.

FRANCE BURGUNDY

There is a place in Burgundy we love to visit often.

Ever since passing this place in nowhere land in the nineties, we feel drawn back there.

Above all, Burgundy has so much to see.

READ HERE FROM OUR FIRST VISIT

Last time we visited however something was different about the otherwise peaceful pastures and villages along the remote countryroads.

Most noteworthy because the Burgundy is also known for it’s delicacies – in particular it”s beef.

Upon looking at the large herds of cows, I understood immediately.

This beautiful young cattle is bred for one thing only: meat.

Though we were staying in a place with a Chef who went to the prestigious Paul Bocuse school of cooking in Paris, I refused to touch the fantastic looking steaks the chef offered us during our stay.

OLD MEDIEVAL CHURCH IN BURGUNDY

We visit some old buildings or churches and or enjoy the countryside.

CASTLE OF CHATEAUNEUF

Heimat ( Home country )

Because I grew up with a friend who was a farmer ; for that reason that I was apprehensive and did not want to touch beef meat.

Therefore I am against the slaughter of such beautiful animals

( This picture was taken early morning. We stopped and consequently all animals came to watch us wondering what we are doing. )

The place is called Arnay le Duc.

Since then our French chef has given up her Restaurant. She now works in Paris. She is a probably the most fantastic chef I met .. Her name is Astrid. Her food: Almost certainly better than Italy – to me.

TOP CHEF IN PARIS

Here you can see what she is up to now.

I have never met a better chef.

She is a top chef in France.

Most noteworthy I remember her mousse au chocolat croustillante … It tastes like heaven … !

From this little town in Burgundy to become Top chef in Paris.

Astonishing achievement isn’t it.

Here near our top chef’s town the town of Pouilly ( also famous for it’s red wines = Pouilly Fuissé

“Laissons-nous porter sur les routes de la Bourgogne en descendant vers le sud, dans le Mâconnais, à la découverte du Pouilly-Fuissé.”

( Let us carry on the roads of Burgundy down to the south, in the Mâconnais, to discover the Pouilly-Fuissé. ) …

What made us return after twenty years ?

I remember now – we stayed in the chateau !

A la table

Astrid prepared fof us a nice bowl of fresh salad … but she wanted us to try the boeuf bourguignon … Due to the fact we don’t eat the best of beef we were looked upon by other guests.

( In contrast to the typical French, who can not go without beef, or a glass of wine ).

First of all she was not too happy I could tell. While we did not touch her meat, hence her spoiled mood that day we enjoyed her dessert even more.

We left this little fellow on his pasture. I know ..
