The Flying Pancake Médoc, Southwest France

In France people are very demanding about their food, it must be of good quality. They would rather spend their last 25,- euro on a good chicken, then on repairing their house. In the Médoc there is a wide variety of fresh fish in the markets and supermarkets. The meat en poultry comes from the region and does not come from bio-industry.
