Thank you! I love having bowls of these around this time of year.

You did? How great!
I just looked though, and can't see where the tag is...

loulou - can you recommend a good sheeps cheese, not too strong but tasty?

my Melange said...

oh they look scrumptuous :)

Loulou said...

our juicy life
Absolutely!
You could try Etorki, Le Lacandou, Pérail du Larzac, Caruchon or Margalet.
I've tasted them all and think you might fall in love with one, if not all, of them. Let me know how it goes. :)

my mélange
Yes, juicy and sweet!

I love clémentines! Now I need to go get some, although, early in the season they can be a bit bland, at least the ones we get up here.

Hope you're enjoying your holiday! And the clementines.

I tasted some last week and they're good. I didn't see where they were coming from, but most likely Spain.

I've been meaning to mention this to you: http://www.miamiherald.com/business/international/story/768527.html

Were you aware of this odd ban on imperfect produce? How weird! It sounds kind of Facist!;)

No wonder your photos of produce are always so great- not to discredit your skill as a photographer!

Our Juicy Life said...

loulou- merci..we will try them soon and I'll let you know. picked up some cheese at the marché this morning and it was Pérail, Maria Grimal...very very good, very mild and it was before I saw your response back to me, the man recommended it. We'll try some of the others you recommended.

Loulou said...

Donna
Yes, I read about that the other day. Until then I didn't know that the law existed!
Guess all that perfect produce helped my skills as a photographer!

OJL
Mmm...pérail is great, oozing cheese. Hope you loved every bite!

These really look amazing. It's not often, even with all our beautiful markets here that we see such beautiful clementines. Alas!

They arrive every year and they're delicious! We eat bowls and bowls of them.
