    I thought I’d introduce myself after having read your great article about Aubrac beef.

    We raise Aubrac cattle in the USA as well. Our family’s approach to marketing our beef is high-end, direct-to-the-consumer. It’s quite a unique approach to getting great meat in the hands of people who will appreciate it. If you’re of a mind, I’d love to tell you about it.

    Separately, if you publish any more writings on Aubrac beef, please let me know.

      Hi Darren

      I am really interested – although rearing L’Aubrac in the USA might to some way from France. I came across a very energetic breed society in the Irish Republic. One of the prices for an Aubrac bull was paid by one of their members in 2013. I am planning a series on special beef breeds, so a dialogue with you would be good.

      Thank you
      Gareth (

  4. Gareth…now on the hunt for some”proper basil” seeds. I was wondering if you are as inundated with those horrible Chinese pine nuts as we are! They are absolutely dreadful! The real thing costs the earth here….2 Tbsp. approx. $5.00 CDN…but how the hell can you make pesto without them! I notice a lot of cooks using pistachios now…tried it not bad! Have had to very good fortune to enjoy pesto in Liguria! Yeah! It was fabulous!

    Hi gareth…..jope you are keeping well and busy……your recent postings–blogs have been fascinating,and sometimes thought-provoking. I wonder if you could find time to look at a message i sent to your thread BLUE COLLAR GASTRONOMY on april 2nd.Its an idea i’ve been toying with for a while,and have had good feedback from other sights.Does this type of site exist already,or would i be embarking on a radical approach to food and drink advertising….i’d value your comments…regards chris mooney
