Thursday, October 13, 2011 – lunch in Molleges

Feeling better this morning, but still not at 100 percent.

After session in Salon de Provence, drove to mas to change for lunch, then off for short drive to Molleges where we have reservations at Mas du Capoun, a spot where we enjoyed a wonderful lunch during our last stay. Took a wrong turn, so spent a few minutes winding through back streets, but the village is very pretty, so we did not mind. Found the restaurant, which – as always – was packed with locals. The food and value here are tremendous.

As it was a bit chilly and windy, they were using the indoor dining room. We were greeted cordially, the hostess speaking in English and David in French. we were seated at a deuce, ordered a kir, and perused the menu. In addition to an incredible 16 Euro fixe prixe menu, the 35 Euro menu offered some wonderful sounding dishes. As I told David, I could dine here every day for a week.

David settled on the 16 Euro menu and opted for a salmon sushi to start, followed by cod. I chose a ravioli with mushrooms and Iberico ham, followed by sliced guinea fowl. For wine, we continued with rose with a Mas St. Berthe from Les Baux.

As you will see in the photos, everything was delectable, including the cheese course David had for dessert.

After bidding farewell to the cordial staff at Mas du Capoun, we wound our way back the few short kilometers to the mas. As I am still not totally recovered, I took a short nap before getting up to post photos and work on the blog.

Down to Eygalieres to buy a couple of items – water, ham (for David), veggies. Met Patrick, our caretaker, at the Cafe le Centre. Chatted for a bit over a btl of rosé. Many laughs. It’s market day tomorrow in Eygalieres, so we decided we’d set up a booth to sell Roxie’s (4) eggs… Second bottle of wine…more laughs. Back to mas, a quick plate of crevette, then off to bed.
