Kicking the Art of French Cooking’s Ass

Dinner last night came partially from my amazement that I had never tried a Julia Child recipe, and partially from being completely in lust with all the fall fruits and vegetables. (No, I don’t feel strange for lusting after root crops or the like.) What’s not to be inspired by?

Here, I’ll say it  s l o w l y…

brown eggs


fresh cheese


sea salt


mission figs

warm strawberries


grapes with seeds


some other stuff but you get the point.


Needless to say it was delightful. Soupe à L’oignon Gratinée and a Quiche  were served with local, fresh fruit.

Here is my favorite fork, stolen from the Palace Hotel in SF. Long story.

Ah, the champagne cork. An old friend.

Cheers! Go out and eat the season as much as possible before it gets cold!
