Papa goes on Vacation - report 2 - The Pirat Traveller

Here is the Pirate Tourist in blood and flesh:
We are still in Nancy, the Capital of the former Dukedome of Lorraine.

Papa went crazy to day. He became a Pirate.
Why? Because he went to the Food Market without having a Kitchen on his disposal.

Here are a very few glimpse, hence you know why papa wanted to steal all what he did see.

Oysters from Marennes, western France. Papa has been there several times and bougth several dousins of Oysters directly from the Oyster Farmers

Local "Charcuterie", made at local Farms.

Vegetables, all sorts from local producers.

And look at this - oh, Papa went allmost crazy.
This is only 5% of the different cheeses available at this Market in Nancy.

Much more from Nancy, when back home. You can see, we had a wonderful, Sunny day.

Tomorrow we will go to the middle of France to meet old French friends. 6-7 hours drive.

Stay tuned. I'll be back with short reports whenever I can.
And as said before, excuse me for not commenting very much during our Vacation.

Bring some of that great food here and you can you our kitchen. We'll even help cook. We also have some very nice wines as well. I'm hungry now.

Just enjoy your vacation. You can visit when you return home. Vacation are just for resting and doing what YOU and ANNA want to do.

Have a terrific day. Big hug to you both. :)

I thought you must have tangled with Jack Sparrow (Johnny Depp) from the "Pirates of the Caribbean" movies, when I saw the title of your post, Tor. However, when I saw all the photos of the food, I understood instantly. I'd have been the same. It must be awfully frustrating not having somewhere to cook!

Jeg tænker på
om grunden
til klappen
for det ene øje,
er fordi de
kulinariske indtryk
er for meget for øjne to?
