Chocolate mousse, an easy dessert to make during the holidays

During the holidays, with family or friends, here is an easy and quick dessert to make. The "homemade" chocolate mousse is a real delight to enjoy during your meals on the terrace in the garden or by the swimming pool. Chocolate mousse made its appearance in the 18th century. It is a Swiss cook of Louis XVI, Charles Fazi, who would have invented the recipe.

Autumn in the Languedoc-Roussillon, Occitanie

Autumn is a fabulous time to visit the Languedoc-Roussillon, Occitanie. In the Languedoc-Roussillon, the weather is still warm and the region is full of life as harvest is under way. The area is buzzing with activity and colour, as this is not only one of the largest wine regions in the world but it is also one of the most diverse in terms of grape varieties available. Each vine variety has leaves that, once the fruit is harvested, turn a different colour so the rolling fields are awash with a stunning combination of reds, oranges, russets, browns and golds.
