Baguette anyone?

 The Preserving Patch has been very quiet for a while as we have been on holiday. I tried to remember to take photos wherever I could so that I could report on our food adventures but it has taken me a while to get around to start writing about them.
There is something about markets in France that farmer's markets in Australia don't quite match. Perhaps its this saucisson man with the fag hanging out his mouth offering tastings of his wares.

Or a stall selling massive blocks of nougat.

We chanced upon this market in the old town of Annecy .....not to be confused with Annecy le Vieux (which translates to the old Annecy) and is just a suburb. Annecy is not far from the Swiss border and Geneva, sits on the edge of a beautiful glacial green lake with snow capped alps in the distance.

The thing is....how do you choose which cheese to buy when there is this much choice?

 And what to choose for lunch to go with the bread?

 Better have some fruit to finish off with.  What a treat!
