Your blog is super. So are your photographies. They make me hungry. I have spent a nice moment when seeing them. Thanks a lot.

my year without

That sounds like a most decadent afternoon...especially all those wonderful bites being homemade! That is a long-term goal of mine and it is refreshing to hear of it.

Also, some people can be very snobby about their wine--my husband and I are snobby about our grape juice!


As I recently moved from France to Germany I am going through the familiarization process of getting to know where and how I can obtain my favorite cooking ingredients. I very much related to your comments made back in 2005 about the difficulty of finding brown sugar. While in France, I too had to rely on good friends sending care packages containing this beloved ingredient (once even customs took a sample to make sure it wasn't heroin!). Anyhow, after 4 years of looking and near the end of my stay in France I finally found my Brown Sugar. It is sold by Béghin Say under the name Vergeoise. It is Golden Brown Sugar but I am not complaining. Unfortunately, only months after this discovery I moved to Munich and now the search begins all over again. Perhaps by now you have found a reliable source of the golden brown sugar of the gods, but if not you might want to look for Vergeoise. Another close alternative is this sugar from South America that you can buy at any Marché Equitable or Bio magasin. Unfortunately I can't remember the exact name. Thanks for the entertaining blog.
