One of our little day trips out of Aix en Provence was to Lourmarin. What a picturesque (a much over-used word and still not adequate) village. My travel companion, Tyra and I found a shady spot for a bite of lunch. You might recognize a famous writer, British expatriate Peter Mayle lives in Lourmarin. One of his books is A Year in Provence.
This is their delicious version of Caesar Salad with Chicken....Yummy!
Check out this cool kitchen. I would DIE for that stove. The backsplash, the sink and the counters are local stone. Notice how she uses lace and embroidered pieces in all sorts of places?
Out by the lace shop is an old-fashion lace making machine.
