Aveyron, France Chowhounds?
We're former NYC chowhounds who have moved to the Rodez area in Aveyron. We would love to know if there are any other chowhounds living in, or visiting, the area. BTW, the village we live in, Belcastel, is designated as one of the 10 most beautiful villages in France. It's really quite quite lovely. There's even a restaurant with one star from Michelin (Du Vieux Pont).
Please post your "find" in the Rodez area as you discover them. We bike in the Dordogne each fall and have been thinking about trying Figeac for biking this year. Of course, biking is just an excuse for being able to eat more great food and drink nice local wines.
I was born in Espalion and have been living in London, UK for the last 7years, working in retaurants and now in corporate hospitality. If my heart and familly are in London my roots and parents are in the Lot Valley, the Aubrac... Surprisingly or not, I enjoy meeting Brits when I am back home they are the best mates to watch football... What about american for good local food?
Are you the ones that bought the old castle? We live in New Mexico USA now, but own a home a few KM north of you near Rignac and will be back in the area again next year. Of course, you have two of the best restaurants in Aveyron right there in Belcastel. I have not eaten at the famed Vieux Pont, but le 1909 was fabulous last time I tried it, a year ago. One hot spot I can't seem to find on the web is supposed to be a great country-style bistrot called (possibly) Cuisine de Patricia - located somewhere near St. Cyprien. Any word on that one?
