These are the melons my wife used to take back to Germany, by train, with her, and by the time they arrived, the whole train was endowed with the odour, happily it wasn't Munster cheese!
Just had our first charentais melon of the year, 3 days before leaving for 3 months! Delicious, as usual, even if not quite as concentrated in flavour and odour as in full season.
At least it wasn't Munster cheese from France, unlike its German sister/brother, it's the best thing to chase any Customs Official for miles!
|get yer teeth around this....|
Just my simple French baguette will be missed (I know nothing about American breads) - if all these ARE really available then I should be all right but - honestly, right now I'm already missing my baguette - still warm - Well - we'll see!
If I make it back, alive - I'll let you know about eating habits elsewhere on this planet.
