Gascon Vignettes

It’s a late afternoon in Éauze, the artisan market has finished up, and Le Bar du Marché is jamming. Behind the long bar, some of the staff is mixing cocktails as fast as the plates come out of the kitchen, while others are pulling bottles from a wall stacked with natural and biodynamic wines. I find a stool and order some bites—hard cheeses, cured meat, razor clams sautéed in oil and herbs, and pan con tomate—and the bartender sets down a spritzy Mojito tinged gold: Like many cocktails here, it’s made with Armagnac, the local spirit.
