How has your week been so far? We hosted our first party in France on Wednesday night, and it was a blast! We invited the Mayor and his wife, along with all our neighbors and new friends. We served homemade quiche, a big cheese board, these chicken sandwiches, store bought macarons, and lots of champagne. I was thrilled that all the food was eaten and everyone seemed to have fun. It's a great house for entertaining (despite the dusty remodel taking place throughout) and we're excited to host many more parties over the summer.
I have recently discovered Emiko Davies wonderful blog, and love the sound of her radicchio, mascarpone and walnut cream on toast.
I saw these placemats being used in a beach bar in Cannes and tracked them down online. The 'antique tile' designs on vinyl are really fun.
This 3 Michelin star restaurant in Bordeaux offers a 'slimming menu'! The three course menu includes a starter, a main course and a dessert, and there are never more than 600 calories.
I am blown away by the beauty of Lori Stern's flower pressed shortbread cookies.
On another note, like so many others I was devastated to learn about parents being separated from their children upon entiring the U.S. to seek asylum. If you have been wondering about how you can help make positive change, this article on A Cup Of Jo offers specific ways you can help.
