Raviolis aux cèpes

Monday 9 July
Our next night at the Aix Festival was a new opera by George Benjamin, Written on Skin.  It's based on an old Provençal story - boy meets girl, boy loves girl, husband makes girl eat boy's heart - so it was perfectly in place at the modern-brutalist Grand Théâtre de Provence.

We held body and soul together with a pre-opera glass of wine and some potato chips, and after the stunning finale, returned to Richeaume to cook up some more of our Place Richelme buys: fresh raviolis aux cèpes, dressed with butter and one of the local goat cheeses made with herbes de Provence.  With it we drank some rosé from (where else?) Aix.
