Diners in Bordeaux, enjoying some regional recipes, no doubt!

Recently, I was invited to co-host a regional wine diner at the fabulous Table 128 Bistro + Bar here in Amerique profonde. For our collaboration, I gave the chef a list of some of the most popular regional specialties in France. It was a fascinating exercise. I thought I’d share it with you, and include the best links to regional French recipes I could find. This list is not definitive, so if I’ve missed one of your faves, leave a comment in embedded Facebook area below this post, and I’ll add it (and try to find an exemplary link to a recipe).
