garçons sur la tranche
it was this girl's birthday so naturally she dressed up as a fairy and handed out macaroons
to boys who would give her a kiss.
she flies away
bad French pun: Booyabass. not as bad as Celtic influenced band seen earlier called Derry Eire.
monkfish wrapped in parma ham on pommes de terre boulangère (layered potatoes and onions slow cooked in stock)
with chorizo butter and a parmesan crisp.
I would have licked the plate if not in public, as it was I managed to clean it pretty well with bread.
bouillabaisse... tarte tatin aux pommes and pistachio ice cream
duck terrine with pistachios, tomatoes stuffed with pork and herbs
Jackie and Philip
grilled mackerel with homemade mayonnaise... local Vendée fish, I can't recall the name but it has similar taste and texture to sea bass.
razor clams baked in herb bread crumbs
pears poached in ginger with passionfruit, apple, and pear sorbets.. Les Crapons wine, tastes better than it sounds.
Gorgeous post, Sweetie! Always lovely to take a vicarious trip through your poetic photos.
Sorry I've not been on Gtalk the past couple days. I've been exhausted (fighting something off?) and barely making my work deadlines. I'll look for you on Monday! :)
I wish you could have joined us, I hope next year we can all spend time at the house in France together.. a long time dream of mine. :)
No worries, I figured you have been busy.. I'm sorry to hear you've been unwell, hope you feel better soon and drink lots of fresh ginger tea! xoxo!!
Мені дуже прикро, що я не можу розмовляти з тобою твоєю рідною мовою... Я вивчав англійську, але рівень знання цієї мови не дозволяє мені вільно її використовувати... Вибач!
Але мені безмежно подобається твоя творчість... І з превеликим задоволенням зафренджу тебе!!!
і нехай тобі щастить...
