Ready for Spring…. it’s coming!
The ‘La Caja’ China roasting box has been placed firmly at the top of my new BBQ wish list:
Although, called the La Caja China, the concept hails from Cuba.
At La Caja China, we believe barbequing is a work of art meant to be shared with friends and family. However, we know many people don’t have the time to truly enjoy barbequing because of all the work required to cook meat with traditional grills and rotisseries. With the La Caja China roasting box, the work and time required to grill meat is cut in half. Our China box roasters can cook up to 100 pounds of meat in four hours, meaning you can prepare more food in less time. The BBQ box, known as a Cajun microwave in some areas, requires little supervision because it builds up and maintains an even heat fast and effortlessly.
Our La Caja China pig cookers and grills are perfect for personal and business use and have been used by master chefs, including Bobby Flay and Martha Stewart. No pig roaster will get your skin as crispy or meat as juicy as our China box. La Caja China is also portable, allowing for seamless transportation between events for caterers. Our family designed La Caja China in order to give everyone the best possible BBQ experience, regardless of their budget. We know a La Caja China will help you in your backyard, at your event or business, and leave you and your friends with a full stomach and a smile.

Provence is literally built on stone walls. An ample supply of stone, coupled with fine masonry skills, have been handed down over the ages inot modern day Provence.
The skill of building dry stone walls was first brought to the are by the Romans from 50BC to 450AD. Then generations of medieval masons perfected the craft.
However, much of the early skill still happens to-day. Suitable stones are slected from the hills and old buildings, a sound foundation is dug and prepared and then stone by stone, the wall is built. It’s back-breaking work and in to-days OH&S environment, it is not uncommon to see the mason with a back brace.
Modern methods have, however, been brought into play with the structure behind the stone being created from cement bricks and reinforcing steel rods to withstand floods and anything else that nature could possibly do to destroy the masterpiece.
The Sound of Music in the Luberon at this time of year is the chain saw and the wood chomping machines.
Even the local authorities get in on the act and it’s a busy time for the tree surgeons.
Keeping fans of Le 5 in Ménerbes informed…. construction is steaming ahead with the scheduled re-opening 1 April 2017.
