A trip to the local market

Sunday morning, I was craving for some kaki so I dragged hubby out of the bed to go to a local market. In fall you can usually get some good deals for kaki and grapes.

Remember this mushroom species? I blog about it here a while back. It is being sold at 16.90 per kg.

Have I told you that Brittany is the heaven to seafood? This is one kind of crawfish that you could find in the West of France.

Crabs here are quite cheap but even since this kill crab incident, I no longer buy crabs, I eat them only when I'm at my in laws.

France is one of the biggest exporters for oyster. It is one of the popular dishes during Christmas gathering.

Hmmm, I love mussel, my MIL makes the best dish out of it: cook them with some onion and white wine and you are good to go.


  1. I picked a bucket full of those mushrooms up in the woods :) just last week. :)

    Miss the seafood abundance in Nantes.

    Hey, u cook those mussels without a problem. Initially I thought it was difficult but in reality, it is so easy. Just put everything in big pot and let it cook for a few minutes and u can eat them already. :) Here's my recipe for Moules Mariniere. U can't go wrong.

  2. Thanks for the recipe! I will try it next time.

  3. So much seafood. Yum!
