Sadly, we are running out of October. Don’t get me wrong, I love Halloween, and Thanksgiving even more, but I wish I had more time to explore the rich culinary heritage of Bourgogne. There were two pretty stellar lunches, featuring Burgundian classics like kir, oeufs meurette, and all kinds of mushroom dishes (we picked the right time to go to Burgundy – just as mushroom season was getting into full swing!); and one rather disappointing dinner, which I didn’t bother photographing. We did a lot of walking around the city, admiring the timbered houses and colorful tiled roofs. Since I’d be here all night if I tried to cover it all in one post, instead I have built a mosaic of my favorite pictures from the trip. Click on the title of the photo at the bottom if you want a better view or a little more info. Enjoy!
