Last Friday's marché was somewhat smaller than previous ones, but still a welcome opportunity to buy things that are not normally available in Ledbury. Gratifyingly, there was no sign of xenophobia this time.

 

 

Like 'Ray X' (whose franglais was a little difficult to decipher, even with a translation engine), I don't share Marcus's obsession with saucissons.   However, there was a huge variety of pâtisseries, cheeses, mustard - and some wickedly gorgeous olives.

The French have two sayings that sum it all up:

Vive la différence and   Chacun à son goût

I can't get my head around how big these cheeses actually are.

I am an ashamed (squeak) cheesyholic and I don't know how I could possibly have missed these cheeses. It's absurd.
Obsession?

It's not an obsession Steve - I just happen to like them! I probably do two or three a year. Cheese - now that's my obsession. Love the cheese pic!
