Traveling around France in low season, sometimes mean you won’t find a restaurant open, especially if you travel off the beaten track. But is there another way to travel? 😉
Lost in the countryside, far from any “big” town, the only thing open is the local épicerie, what do you do?
Well, you simply enter the épicerie (the local supermarket) say “Bonjour!”, and look for all you can possibly use as a lunch: bread, saucisson de campagne (a rustic, countryside salami), terrine aux chataignes (a chestnut terrine).
Find a nice spot, near a river, or a prairy, or a meadow, lay on the grass, and eat!
