Sunday we fled civilization! We went to Pégomas for a picnic/BBQ at our friend Jeff country shack. We merrily celebrated Jeff comeback from his service tour abroad and the arrival of spring.

Jeff is a very special friend for me, he's the one who carried the umbrella, my kaki and vervaine provider.
We hit the road directions the country side (l'arrière-pays) with 2 big wicker baskets full of food provisions.

Our menu was:
brad beans and arugula salad, small purple artichokes, tapenade (puréed olives), Corsican charcuteries, lamb skewers, baked potatoes en robe des champs (meaning baked under the embers).
