Who's Been Eating My Porridge ?!

Una and Mike took us out to dinner tonight and we had a wonderful time. After much deliberation, we took them to the Chantier at Bedarieux which cooks a lot of its dishes on an outdoor, wood fire. It is also next door to René (the shellfish man) so their mussels and oysters are super fresh! Yummy! We were all happy bunnies by the end of the evening!

Our starters:
Richard and Mike shared a camembert wrapped in bacon, and roasted quickly on the fire whilst Una and I had foie gras with chutney. Thank goodness we all decided to share - the plates that arrived were massive!

Our main courses included:
Moules marinière, moules au roquefort, moules gratinée and moules/huitres gratinée. Do I need to go on?! They were all excellent.
As an aside - the girls voted the chips 'heaven on a plate', and the desserts made a teenage chocoholic very happy!
