Like the guest on Program 544, the Gascogne diet, and the Basque cuisine as well, really rings my bell.
I realize now that one of my favorite spots all the way over in Nice, recommended in earlier RS guidebooks,
is L'Ovale, which celebrates the dishes of the southwest like those discussed in this episode of the radio show.
What would be a suggested itinerary for a week or so, maybe more, in Gascony and French Basque territory for someone
with a strong stomach and without a car?
Where would one fly into and out of?
I have also mentioned elsewhere in the forum my enjoyment of floc,
which is mentioned briefly in this radio segment but passed over by RS.
