Le petit-déjeuner (breakfast) at La Vudèle was such a wonderful treat that I still dream about all the delicacies I was served. In the morning I was waken up by swallows and sparrows singing outside my window..how neat wasn’t that? The drilling and banging outside my building in Paris had been replaced with birds singing to me. I loved it and for the first time in months I felt relaxed when I stepped out of the bed. When walking down the stone brick stairs from my room I was thinking about the homemade bread I was about to have soon. The evening before, Claudia had teached me how to make a no-knead bread with sourdough, she mixed the ingredients, sourdough, flour, salt, water and left it during the night in order for the dough to rise. Further she explained that in the morning she would bake the bread in a covered pot……
The table on the terrace facing their garden was set up with so many yummie treats I felt like a spoiled princess and was even worried about how to try everything without exploding?
I had one glass of fresh pressed orange juice, one glass of lavendar infusion, a cup of tea (6 different teas to choose from as you can see in the photos) , honey from Felizia Pozzoni in La-Palud-du-Verdon, Claudias homemade peanutbutter and pâte à tartiner au chocolat (read Nutella….irresistebly delicious!), butter in the most cutest shape I’ve ever seen, fresh faiselle (fresh cheese made of Goat milk), fresh fruitsalad decorated with fresh mint from their garden, boiled egg (from happy chickens from Regine & Bernard in Bras-de-Asse) and so ofcourse the sourdough no-knead bread! Straight out from the oven, crusty and perfectly soft inside…I was in heaven :-) And not to forget, one morning Jim sang the famous egg-song that I never had heard before, “How do you like your eggs in the morning” (Dean Martin & Helen O’Connor) but that I had read about in one of the reviews they’ve had..and that I had kindly asked about to hear :-)
Their breakfast was really one of a kind, organic and homemade with lots of love. Do I need to mention I’m still craving for this breakfast? One thing is for sure, I would love to return next year :-)

All time favourite on the table….
