It is unusually warm here for the season; I love it. Cool at night (sweater weather) and 27-28 C days & sunny. Last evening we attended a private concert before dinner. A small chamber orchestra of young people played on a stage inside the ruins of an ancient castle while their prettier peers served wines & champagne. Local meats & cheeses filled a long table. At the end were sardines! I'm in the Mts on the border with Spain. The sardines were pastries - a local tradition. Sugar, butter & flour in a sardine shape stuffed with an almond custard, dipped in a thin chocolate (not a heavy crust, but a wash) and sprinkled with sugar. Surprisingly good! They have a Brotherhood of the Sweet Sardines group to preserve the tradition, as if the taste alone wouldn't do it! Fun stuff like that happens every day. The evening before it was a rooftop cocktail party with electric violin music before dinner, (again in an ancient castle - this one with plumbing) and a different rooftop Fado concert after. I'm being wined and dined BIG time! I'll be back in the States for Monday's AM bakery duties - see you.
