FF2.50 20 plus years ago was probably far more than E15 today. So have prices really risen.

PdJ's come in all sizes and and tastes, some we've had, at posh looking eateries have been gagging, others, a village greasy spoon equivalents were suitable for Mitchelin 4 stars at half the price.

The holiday's is supposed to be an adventure, which means you take the chance if you want to explore the cuisine.

It was £2.50 and the Ff was about Ff10 to the pound at that time.

Our friends in France tend to blame the introduction of the Euro for almost anything but the weather; but they are particularly scathing at the price rises of the Plats du Jour. On the other hand, the coffee seems to have stayed more or less the same! Weird! think_smiley_46

Agree entirely on the standards of cuisine. We have often found that the cafes with the worst toilets have the best food allthumbz and almost any place that has a car-park full of lorries will have something superb on the menu! allthumbz

Best regards,

And meanwhile, back at the kitchen sink........... - I have one of those 'box' plastic trolleys that folds completely flat to almost briefcase size with carry handle. I actually use it for trundling the cake/gin/mixer/pots and stuff to the beer tent, plus loads of other uses in the van and at home. I think it would be OK for the washing up too. It was from Towsure and cost about £12.
