about

Chez Loulou began in January 2006 as a way to give others a glimpse of our life in a beautiful corner of France, the Languedoc-Roussillon, where we lived for almost 8 years. In December 2011 we started a new French adventure and moved north to the Calvados department in lower Normandy.
This blog includes stories about the delicious regional food and wine from around France, European travel insights and experiences, recipes of my favorite sweet and savory dishes, photos of the stunning scenery and charming vignettes I capture through my camera lens, stories of life in France, including the ever-present challenge of French bureaucracy and practical advice about moving to France and the cost of living in France.
  
It also includes cheese. Lots of cheese! In April of 2007 I started a project to taste each and every French cheese available in France. So far I've tasted over 220!
