In Paimpol, enjoy the delights of the foreshore and the star mollusc of winter
It’s a small pleasure but it creates a feeling of incredible luxury. It makes you feel very important and lucky. What’s the recipe? Start with a walk on the beach at low tide, in the cool and pale winter light. Soak up the atmosphere as you collect sea shells and seafood. Then take a little break in a warm bistro before heading to the market and the fish stall. The scallops here are excellent. Return to your accommodation with your pearly treasure. Fry a knob of butter in the pan, add a pinch of fleur de sel and you’ll be promised a moment of unique delight that melts in the mouth.
