Marion

[ENGLISH] My name is Marion Barral and I am passionate about food, wine, sports and photography. Originating from a wine-growing family in the Languedoc (South of France), I studied Agronomic Science in Paris (AgroParisTech). After having worked three years in the wine trade in the UK, I now have what I call “My Dream Job”: I travel the world selling wines from the South of France. This job allows me to come back to my roots while giving me the opportunity to discover other countries, cultures and languages. This is something I try to share with you in my blog 🙂
[FRANCAIS]Je m’appelle Marion Barral et je suis passionnée par le vin, l’alimentation, le sport et la photo. Je suis fille de vigneron dans le Languedoc et ingénieur agronome (AgroParisTech). Après avoir travaillé pendant trois ans dans le secteur du vin au Royaume-Uni, j’ai trouvé depuis Janvier 2012 ce que j’aime appeler « mon job de rêve ». Je parcours le monde entier pour vendre du vin du sud de la France. En plus d’un retour aux sources, cela me permet de découvrir d’autres pays, langues et cultures. C’est ce que j’essaye de vous faire partager dans mon blog 🙂

Macaronade Sétoise Poisson & Fruits de mer

The “macaronade” is a traditional dish from Sète made from macaroni and meat. A local restaurant, la guinguette chez Fady, created a seafood version which is by far my favourite mediterranean dish. It gathers all the main food specialties from Sète: stuffed squid and mussels and cuttlefish in rouille sauce (aïoli & saffron based sauce).
