Bonjour! First things first: no, I am not in France, but that would certainly be wonderful! However, tomorrow night my mind, along with my dinner will be. Greg and I are a hosting a fundraising dinner party tomorrow evening, and we had the opportunity to choose a theme, so I went with French. So fun, right? It has been such a joy coming up with different spins on classic French recipes. Also, my goal is to turn our dining area into a replica of a sidewalk bistro. Decor is key!
The French are known for their rich, yet light cuisine. I love that! The majority do not limit their intake of what they eat, but more so of how they eat. Moderation is key, and I am a big proponent of that. While I cook and explore new recipes for our party, I will definitely be documenting my adventure. I say adventure, because while I know a lot about French culture and food, I haven't experienced much French cooking (in comparison to other types of cultural food). I'm excited, and know that it will be fun no matter what, and that's what's important. :)
As I'm cooking, I will certainly be writing down my recipes and taking photos. Next week, join along as I share all about my French cooking adventure. Have a beautiful weekend, and if you have any tips or suggestions, please send them my way!
