This week's photos of Food & People is by Lisa Mclaughlin. Below is whatÂ Lisa has to say about the photos and her experience of Bordeaux, France.
Bordeaux is the fifth largest city in France and the region is home to some some of the most famous wines in the world, including chateaux Margaux, Lafite Rothschild, Latour and Mouton Rothschild. Located on the Garonne river between Â the Atlantic Ocean and the fertile vineyards and farmlands it's a great place for foodies, known for sweet brinyÂ Arcachon oysters, tender Pauillac lamb, foie gras, Perigord truffles, prunes from Agen, and St-Emilion macarons. The CIVB, or theÂ Bordeaux wine Bureau, has a center in town where win tourist can take classes and there is aÂ wine bar in the lobby. The bar itself combines the classical architecture of the 18th century building with sleek modern furnishings. And visitors are able to Â exploreÂ Â a huge array of Bordeaux wines by the glass at super reasonable prices.
