Our Kitchen here at La Forge

IMG_4686IMG_4688IMG_4690

*”You mean you made everything in this tiny kitchen!”…said one of my American guests as she helped me clear off the table. A small but fully packed kitchen doesn’t hinder us from cooking up some great meals. However, for our cooking classes we head over to our farm (a mile down the road) and use the large renovated kitchen in Bruno’s “Miller’s Cottage”.

**Our talented baker friend, Carlos Alves, who has a wonderful traditional French boulangerie et patisserie (l’Art du Pain) in the town of Saint Gaudens near the Spanish border…after bringing back to life several other old boulangeries in the south of France and creating one in Brazil.

He arrived here at La Forge laden with breads, brioche and “croustades”… needless to say our guests were as delighted as we to have a “bread tasting” for breakfast this morning.

***My pastry marble that always seems to fill up with more than pastry dough and a rolling pin !   The magnetic spice holders were found at a local supermarket.

The first two weeks of august are still available !

The first two weeks of august are still available if you’d like to rent La Forge and the guest cottage for your summer family reunion…or vacation with friends. An English family has reserved the main house from July 14th for two weeks. We  now have a wonderful, small, children’s room with 4 “lit clos”..that look tempting even to some of my adult guests.

The main house can be rented for 7 adults and 4 children on its own or with the cottage that sleeps 2 or 3

For the august 2012 rental you may still contact me at: whatscookinginfrance@gmail.com

RENT OUR HOME FOR A MONTH THIS SUMMER !

Again this year we are meeting up for a family reunion in Italy.  I’ve told everyone that my B&B will probably be closed from  July 14th to Aug 12th…so I’m looking for just the right family or group of friends to rent our home for the month while I’m gone. Friends will be near by if you have any questions and I have a gardener and a house keeper who will come to keep things tidy.  The price is 3000€ for 2 weeks or 4000€ for 3 weeks and 5000€ for the month ! It sleeps 7 + a children’s room for 4 ( see the rooms on my B&B pages) and you can just move in and feel that you are French for the summer. Please pass the word along. Of course I’ll give priority to my former guests. If you take the cottage as well there’s enough room for 10 + the children’s room. The cottage is 600€ per week if rented on its own but only 400€ if rented along with the main house.  HURRY AND RESERVE NOW !!

La Forge is an hour from the Atlantic ocean beaches and 5 minutes from our private family pool at our farm at Pey Froment (1 mile away) .

St Quentin de Baron is 45 minutes from the Bordeaux airport and 30 minutes from the train station.
