French village life... Montmorillon with Andrew Prior.
Show Notes

I first met Andrew Prior when he was a guest on the Loulabelle's FrancoFiles podcast way back in episode 66 and since then I have been to stay at his home in Montmorillon. It is in one of 12 departments in the Nouvelle Aquitaine region, in the beautiful Vienne not far from the Loire Valley. 

When I stayed there, I had one of the two best meals of my whole life. As a previous MasterChef contestant, I knew any meal prepared by Andrew would be memorable, but nothing prepared me for the sensational experience my husband Paul and I had with the alfresco meal prepared for us at his home. I said I would never try to replicate any of the dishes as I could never do them justice to Andrew's original! He did suggest in this chat though that I come back to visit and do a cooking class with him! I am definitely popping that on my to-do list in France! 

Andrew chatted with me about the local food specialties, a wine variety I have never tried and also his attempt at educating the locals about our Aussie Kath & Kim culture! I heard about local festivals, nearby places to visit to suit those seeking either touristy or just fabulous, and Andrew's fave past-time of brocante shopping in local markets. 

Now I have immersed myself in the Vienne near Montmorillon in this chat, I both feel as though I have had a petit vacances and escape to this beautiful region whilst at the same time j'ai hâte to get back there!
