A classy French tradition worth sharing

"Sunday Lunch"

All over France, people have lunch with their families on Sunday afternoons. Some families meet in restaurants, often in a big multi-generational group. Others go to their mother's or grandmother's place for the meal. It's a tradition travelers can experience too, with a little forward planning.

On summer holidays in Provence, we have enjoyed Sunday meals with friends old and new...around a manor-house garden table, and on a vine-draped terrace at a family-run restaurant with children and dogs underfoot. All were memorable!

Along the way, we tried new dishes...enjoyed wine and laughter...and discovered what three beautiful and relaxing hours around a convivial table can do for the week to follow.

There are a few rules for Sunday lunch...

Rule 1: Share the table and conversation.

Rule 2: Keep it simple & fresh

Rule 3: Don't skimp on courses.

And perhaps most important...

Rule 4: Don't rush!

Our most recent stay in Provence was with Bliss Travels. Happily, guests of Bliss are guaranteed at least one, and probably more, memorable Sunday lunch in an atmospheric setting. More about our travels in France at AnitasFeast.com !
