Year after year, following the animated and colourful summer months, are coming now grey days when the sky hangs lower and candles making their comeback, especially in areas that are not favoured with the radiant brightness that is so characteristic of the South.
Currently, the warmth of the sun's rays becomes a memory and with it the time spent on holiday in the South of France. But the souvenirs come awake again as soon as you go and get out the regional products you bought during those wonderful holidays in Provence. How good that you had fortunately the foresight to take advantage of the local markets in view to stock up on regional products.
Now we can go ahead finding pretty packaging to show them off to their best advantage: For grandpa, a nice gift bottle- bag for the good cuvé of a Châteauneuf-du-Pape and to please grandma, the jar of garrigue honey we bought when we rented a house in Vaucluse, wrapped in a pretty Christmas paper.
Mum will be delighted with the little perfume bottle promising the scents she loves so much. The opportunity for this souvenir from your weekend holiday renting a cottage in the Var, arose while discovering the Côte d'Azur and driving all the way to Grasse, considered the cradle of perfumery since the Middle Ages and world famous in the perfume sphere. Finally for Dad, our barbecue king, the bottle of high quality cold-pressed olive oil from Nyons which won't be lent next summer even to his best friend!
The children, known as sweet-tooths, what most of them really are, will have fun to discover a box of calissons from Aix-en-Provence, a bag of Berlingots from Carpentras, Chamallows from Montelimar and other chocolate delicacies among the variety of packages.
But not to forget the children's godparents who will also share this evening with us: The jar of foie gras from the Gers, bought on a side trip to the South West, is also ready in a pretty jute bag to give them joy
Happy holidays to all before we say, as often usual in Provence, "à l'an que vèn"!
