La Chatte Gitane (or The Gypsy Cat) was the name we chose for our cottage in France at the time. We chose it while on the road, moving house the first time round, from Ireland to France with 2 dogs and 7 cats in the car.
This blog began its insignificant life as a recipe book for friends and family who would ask me repeatedly for a recipe of this, that and the other.
Since then it has taken many different directions, like we did and like gypsies tend to do. Sometimes making a U-turn and revisiting familiar roads and taking a break when necessary.
You'll find recipes here, but also musings about the places we've called home, the gardens that we've established, not always successfully, the homes we've improved and the environments we've lived in. Currently, after yet another stint in Ireland, we're back in France @ Le Mas d'Ayen

Unfortunately, I might not be able to add recipes to my blog for the next couple of months as my schedule will be rather busy, with the garden, the holiday cottage and the guests. I do not know if many of them will have evening meals, but we've had a few so far. Here's a taster.

I will however, keep you up to date with projects, garden progress and miscellaneous drivel, not forgetting lots of pictures.

  1. How fabulous! Great reading - thanks Friedel for highlighting this blog - it looks like a super place to work.
    I enjoyed reading the entry about the chickens, let us know how they get on - I've always wanted some in the back garden!
    And I would love to see the recipe for the goats cheese and chard tart - it looks delicious!
