Europe in many dishes 26: a day in Toulouse

Toulouse, the 'ville rose', with its beautiful old buildings and sunny bustling atmosphere, has lots of wonderful places to eat and fabulous 'epiceries fines' or gourmet grocers. we spent the day there today and ate in a cute little Argentinian place--great empanadas and for dessert dulce de leche cake! Nearby was the fabulous new eatery, Duck Me, a gourmet fast-food place themed entirely around duck, which is of course the meat par excellence of the region. And of course all those wonderful epiceries fines, and the city's oldest chocolate-maker, Olivier, which started in 1780. And that's only scratching the surface of this fantastic city!
