We’ve been reunited!We’ve only been apart for a grand total of about a week & a half but I couldn’t have been more excited to catch up with this little one. So we popped open a bottle of bubbly & started celebrating.I cannot tell you how good it is to be back in our third home – Spain is our second – and being with our extended family makes it 10 times better.After chatting, a few nibbles and catching up on what the Coulthard’s been up to – they’ve scouted some pretty fun things for us to do whilst we were here, we were whisked away to Mougins. A beautiful little town up in the hills behind Cannes. Once you’re up there the views are spectacular. Its a Ville Gastronomique which means there are cobbled streets filled with back to back beautiful restaurants.
Whilst the boys parked the cars & had to make their own way up the hill the girls got dropped off at the top and took in the viewsUnknown to us there was a festival going on. A white evening like the one in St Tropez, so everyone was dressed in all white (obviously!). Even though we didn’t get the memo we just so happened to fit in pretty well. Ironically at a French celebration, they had a fish ‘n’ chip van…who’d have thought!We went to a beautiful restaurant called La Gaudinade. We went a couple of years ago and absolutely loved it. The food is so good. It’s traditional French cuisine which is absoultely delicious!
I started with a seafood ramekin, snails were on the menu but I couldn’t bring myself to do it, they’re not my thing.Followed by red mullet in a rich tomato and black olive sauce – amazing.For dessert I probably should have gone for the Crème de la Crème of French desserts, Crème brûlée, being in France ‘n’ all. But I went for a Pot au Chocolat, which was a decision I did not regret. It was uh-mazing!!! So so chocolatey. Umm delicious.
Mougins is definitely one of my favourite places to eat in the South of France, it’s just so charming & rustic whilst still being at the height of modern cuisine…however I think you’re going to hear me saying that about a lot of places around here!!
