Under the current confinement restrictions, dining sur place is no longer an option but you can still enjoy tasty, chef-prepared cuisine, and support our local restauranteurs, by ordering dishes à emporter. It’s a win-win situation! P-O Life reader, Peter Spencer from le Boulou, has very kindly compiled a list of restaurants offering take-away and/or delivery services.

Walnuts contain protein, omega 3, fatty acids, vitamin E, B complex and minerals. They are said to be brain food – well they look like little brains, don’t they? – and studies suggest they can ward off Alzheimer’s, lower cholesterol and protect against heart disease and diabetes.
