I always wanted to see the lavender fields in Provence. That dream came true this past July.
A favorite village was Roussillon. The ocher cliffs surrounding the town are just beautiful.
Our friend Matthew (amazing how you bond over food) helped us taste several varieties of olive oil.
We tasted one he actually harvested and pressed himself. It was lovely learning about the process.
I am trying to convince him that it would be fun to have guests join him in November and learn about the harvest and the process first hand.
