Situated at the northernmost part of France, a mere thirty-something miles from England, the Pas-de-Calais region has glorious countryside, beautiful sandy beaches, lots of golf courses, lovely seaside towns with great seafood restaurants, not to mention the sophisticated charm of Le Touquet and the stunning Flemish architecture of the market towns in the region.
The Dover ferry and Eurotunnel crossing points mean the Pas-de-Calais is a popular destination year round for tourists looking for an easy foray to France and equally as popular for people looking for a bolt-hole across the channel to enjoy la belle vie without the big road trip involved with travelling further south.

So, there's a rumour, summer may actually be on it's way........ at last! I came across this recipe the other week and it is so good in so many ways I thought it was too good not to share. If you're looking for a guilt-free, healthy snack to cool you down on a hot day this Dole Whip beats ice-cream hands down, it's perfect for children too. It takes less than 5 minutes to make and it's like a smooth creamy ice-cream but it's dairy-free and the only ingredients are banana, pineapple, maple syrup and lime. This will definitely be my poolside essential this summer.
