Life is goooooood

October 21, 2012 admin 2

This weekend was exactly what I pictured when moving to France: wine, foie gras, wine, more wine, wine. Not only did the weather rewind back to summer (right after I bought a new winter coat! Maybe if I buy mittens in a few weeks the magic will work again?), but the annual Mi …

Food Photography Class. At last!

September 29, 2012 admin 0

Despite a cold and rainy morning, I hauled myself out of bed for a class that I’ve been really looking forward to for a month. Et Toque! is a great little place that offers all types of cooking classes, but today they had something that was more down my alley: a food ph …

What would this blog be without food? In fact, what would a trip to France be without food? So here is a post dedicated to the deliciousness that we experienced while on our day trip to Vienne. Since you can’t get a bite to eat here between 3 and 7pm, we thought ahead a …

A few hours in Lyon
