So the current title of this blog – ‘Tales from a village in the Ardèche’ may or may not last to the end of the week. At a loss for a title but under pressure to find one quick so as my computer experto amigo Gareth could set this up for me, we decided to state the facts. I live in the middle of nowhere – in a village in the Ardèche. And thus the title. Now back to my apricot tart.
