Ordinary relics from kitchens past are marvellous story tellers for today. A regional speciality is always worth a drive across europe to sample. Studying history through the medium of food actually makes it palatable! Baking is my simple truth; the discovery of european food cultures make a magical second childhood that I will never grow outgrow.
I am wife to a lovely frenchman, the mother of two burgeoning, clever teens and owner of three delightful rescue spaniels. We all live together in France in a sweet little house that really is ringed with roses. A home that gets smaller by the day as I shoehorn in more vintage kitchen items, each one of which is completely necessary.
