It is mushroom season here in France . I didn't know anything about mushrooms until I bought the Moulin Bregeon. When my french friends in angers found out I bought a place way out in the countryside surrounded by forest they said " Oh you must have a lot of mush rooms out there" So they came out in the fall and showed me how to identify edible mushrooms. As it turns out my fields and forest have an abundance of mushrooms . The crew at the moulin have been out the last few days mushroom hunting and the results are on our plates .

I used to live in Paris and knew many fine places to eat that were not expensive . Over the years I have gotten glued to my village and project in the Loire Valley that I almost never go to Paris. So when my guest ask me where they can eat in Paris I can not advise them . Thank you for sharing this information . I will suggest this restaurant to folks who ask me for advise and tell them that you like it so it must be good. Jonathan
