Annecy - Traiteur Pauvert (9/30)

In the heart of Annecy, Traiteur Pauvert has been around for six generations, providing high quality, reliable products in their boutique and through catering. They have a fantastic selection of prepared salads, sweets, and meets, which completely made me miss having Morton's Gourmet Market in Lakewood Ranch.

The Galette aux Courgette looked divine. Sadly, we passed, but this is yet another recipe I'm going to try to concur in the upcoming months.

Boudin a la creme is a creamy pig's blood sausage. We decided to also pass on this, but for different reasons. The residue on the knife just didn't do it for me. But to be fair, with the exception of Toulouse, I'm not really a sausage fan.

They had a lovely selection of prepared dishes, quiches, and tarts.

Colorful, gelatinous fish dishes.

Wow! Am looking at these pics eating a cheese and marmite sandwich which now tastes rather dry and boring!! Heaven would be to shop there every day. The pigs blood sausage looks foul i suppose its like black pudding which is also made of blood but black pudding though not lovely sounds better than creamy pigs blook gag!!

Marmite, boring? Non! Argh, black pudding! My first experience with black pudding was at a road services outside of London on the M25 for breakfast. It had been sitting under a heat lamp so by the time it ended up on my plate (unsolicited) it looked like a dried up blood clot. Needless to say, I didn’t eat it.
