On the 1st January, we left Italy for the French country side. It was our longest drive of about 500km. The scenery was beautiful with snow covered fields and small towns. We drove through the Mont Blanc tunnel which is 12km long through the mountains. We arrived late in the afternoon with the two satellite navigation systems taking us different routes - one along a rode and the other on a mud track. We are staying in my sisters and brother-in-laws house in the small town ...

Vienne was quite a large Roman settlement – they reckon 30,000 people – the population decreased over the centuries and today is back to 30,000.

Anyway, our hotel is good and we have a lovely room on the third floor. The room is small but we have a balcony with fabulous ...
... next day we did eggs. Boiled eggs (3 minutes), 5 minute eggs (still cooked but soft in the middle). the perfect omelette (fail...... no colour on the outside but cooked on the inside). Mine looked a bit like scrambled eggs. We also made beautiful sauces for the eggs including a poached egg in a red wine reduction with glace onions, as well as eggs florentine. This day we also looked at mushrooms. We turned mushrooms (once again, turning vegetables is not my favourite) this included ...
