I have solved the bacon problem and have learned to make my own dry cure bacon - dead simple and loads of help in the internet where you can buy ready made cures fore all sorts of meat preserving (including sausage making) but strongly recommend a vacuum sealer with loads of bags as is incredibly useful for bacon making/storing and superb to re-package things in the freezer.
We will be moving permanently to the Ariege in the new year but have already Sussex most of the things on the very helpful lists already as have had the place for 5years so have tried and tested at both sides of the channel. Beware of shipping paint as our shippers absolutely refuse to allow us to include paint in our final shipment so the car full of paint seems to be our only option.
Also re coriander - it is not grown in our area at all and neither seeds or fresh can be found. I dropped into a friendly UK garden center a couple of weeks ago and have been advised to grow small and very regular amounts in pots throughout the whole year inside the house in a light and warm room as apparently as a plant it is not very hardy or long lived - so take loads of seeds with you
