Lunch in the Place Carnot


In Bonnieux we stop for lunch in the Place Carnot, with the end of the treasure hunt in sight. The restaurant our local friends always recommend is Le Fournil (trans. The Bakery) and in summer its tables under the trees around the stone fountain are always crowded. If you haven't booked, then arrive early!


The food is always regional with a twist, beautifully presented. Shown above is a starter of goat's cheese with artichoke heart and tapenade (salty black olive paste). With a glass of very cold pale rose, this is a true taste of Provence. And the final clue to the treasure hunt is in sight...

Pardon me while I haul myself off the floor... just passed out from sheer longing. Got any more chilled rose? (Just imagine the accent over the "e", it's there in spirit.)

What a delicious meal! I am so jealous. This looks like something I would love (my mouth is watering). Lucky!

P.S. Every time I read the title to this post I see "Place Carrot"... hee hee! 8-) I must be slightly dyslexic.

The freshness and taste of food are the only things I miss from provence. Just enjoy!
