Travel tip: Don't get crabby if someone makes a wrong turn, even if you're cold, hungry and it's beginning to rain. You might find a warm, welcoming haven with excellent food (at the right price) just around the corner. We did at Pascaline, where for a simple lunch we had the day's menu: parsnip and Jerusalem artichoke soup followed by roasted chicken breasts with a creamy cider and butter sauce served over the most delicate potato cakes imaginable. A memorable meal I shall diligently try to imitate. Pascaline, 5 rue de la Poterne, Rouen.
