Gilles' Golden Rooster

Gilles Diglé, Vaison la Romaine's butcher and very popular caterer was awarded the "Coq d'Or" (Golden Rooster) by the French Guide Gourmand. Gilles received this honour, which in France is taken very seriously for his delicious olive sausage called Pontias. If ever you come to Vaison go and taste it, it is worth it!
And if you want to celebrate a big party you can't do better than to ask Gilles to prepare his famous Paëlla.

  2. Thank you Mary, I love your blog, too! Not so long ago I prepared the Patricia Wells tomato clafoutis you are featuring and it is elegant and delicious.
