Touraine Saffron Fair + two Montlouis profiles

Xavier Weisskopf's remarkable cave@Le Rocher des Violettes

Better late than never, and apologies that I didn't notice it before, but yesterday was the 10th annual 'foire au safran' held in Preuilly-sur-Claise. Anyway a reminder that Touraine is a producer of saffron. Details on the Les Saveurs du Val de Loire blog.

The reports on my visit last Wednesday to Laurent Chatenay and Xavier Weisskopf are now complete.
