Une soirée française, à Pornic.

Bonjour toute le monde! J’espère que vous avez passez un bon Noël! I am all settled in back in Nantes and ready to share some of my recent adventures with you!

Do you remember Clara from the last blog? Her family is from a town on the coast of western France called Pornic. It’s a very cute town with lots of sailing boats and fisheries along the water. It is also home to Le Château de Pornic too which is a little medieval castle in the centre of the town. I visited stayed at her family home just 10 minutes from Pornic town with some friends last weekend. Here’s what we got up to!

Samedi après-midi

On Saturday afternoon we drove for around 50 minutes to get from Nantes to Pornic. We were welcomed into her home by her parents et ses chats! Then we went for a walk along 6576575, a stretch of beach that leads into the centre of Pornic. There, we walked around les boutiques and had some ice cream from a local crêperie, La Fraiserie (in the freezing cold!). Before heading home for dinner, we stopped into Gavet, Clara’s favourite patisserie et chocolatier. We got a selection of local classics to try: Galette des Rois, Tarte argumes meringuée, Gateau nantais L’armoricain and Kouign-Amann.

Samedi soir

After all of our wandering in the afternoon, we arrived home to raclette for dinner! Raclette is a Swiss dish where you melt cheese and pour it over the food you’ve prepared for dinner, this could be potatoes, roasted veg or meat. It’s very popular in France and most French families will have a raclette grill they use in the house. If you are a cheese fan you will love it! After dinner we made Crêpes Suzette (a crêpe topped with butter, rum flambé and marmalade) and played some music.

Dimanche matin

We had a very easy Sunday morning and took the car to le marché and bought a few things for lunch. I really liked the market in Pornic because it wasn’t just in one square on different streets through the town.

Dimanche après-midi

For lunch on Sunday we had une tarte aux poireaux and some comté that we bought at the market. Afterwards, we went another big walk on beaches La Boutinardière and Crève-Cœur.

I hope you enjoyed hearing about my trip in Pornic, à plus tard!
