First dinner in Orthez
On arriving at our home in Orthez, the first order of business is always a visit to the market. Conveniently, we arrived just in time for the Saturday Market (the smaller of the two weekly markets featuring exclusively local farm product (the big market day, that includes in addition to food, a wide range of housewares, garden tools, cleaning products, clothing, shoes and on and on, takes place on Tuesdays).
Here is a photo of a bar (sea bass) caught off Saint Jean de Luz the day before, as it arrived finally at our table. I roasted it whole stuffed with lemon and thyme, accompanied by roasted carrots and Brussels sprouts.
