I have uploaded some photos of my trip to the Dordogne to my Flickr feed. I went to France in mid 2011 with Hana and stayed just outside a small village called Limeuil in the Dordogne/ Perigord region of France. It was on this trip that I fell in love with food again. The wonderful fresh vegetables in such vibrant colour were such a pleasure to cook with it was impossible not to be enlivened by them.I made some wonderful simple dishes whilst we were there, infused with vibrant flavour and colour.
I loved the simple uncomplicated and unpretentious resturants and cafes serving good honest food. Time spent in cafes by the river or market with a coffee or a glass of wine were simply heaven.
When I came back that inspiration still burned bright so I started spending more time in the kitchen. It was here amongst the Markets, Cafes and Resturants of Périgord and the Dordogne that russellskitchen was born.
