We haven't eaten any onion soup yet, so today was the day for that. We've read that onion soup is targeted toward tourists rather than regular French people, and it's true that it seems to be found in restaurants which offer an English translation of their menus. Nevertheless, we had some for lunch. It was good, but not as good as the version my daughter-in-law makes.
We've noticed the almond shaped candies below in candy shops, and decided to try them today. They're from Aix-en-Provence and they're called calissons. They're a paste of candied fruit (especially melons and oranges) and almonds, topped with a thin layer of royal icing. They're said to protect you from the plague, so I guess they can be considered preventive medicine. They're okay, but not addictive.
Today's cheese: None.
