Day three, and I remember literally waking up to an ‘ooh I’m still oh so full’ feeling after Tuesday nights luxurious candlelit dinner in the grounds of La Manoir, one amazing meal too many perhaps? The astonishing thing is that only a few short hours later I found myself in the Sarlat-la-Caneda market, staring unabashedly into what can only be described as a vat of Paella with absolutely no intention of walking on by.
Below some of our market finds laid out beautifully for lunch, the ever-laughing Romina of Les Madeleines in Salt Lake City, and our very own most-photographed hand and face model, Olivia of Everyday Musings.
Later that afternoon we set about cooking and styling a cèpes risotto. I confess to being slightly nervous when confronted with this as I have tried and failed in the past to find a way to make risotto look somehow elegant, but perhaps that was my problem. Watching Aran style with such ease was incredibly motivating and after a few wrong turns I was very happy with the rustic looking result. A truly inspiring day.
