happy bastille day

Aujourd'hui, c'est le quatorze juilliet--la fête nationale en France!

Happy Bastille Day, mes petits. In celebration of France and all its gloriously gluttonous and devastatingly chic ways, I will be toasting (in between mad-dash apartment viewings in thunderstorms and humidity) with a glass of 2009 Delhommeau Muscadet Harmonie from the Loire (think orange blossom and nectarine cut with fantastic, bright acidity) and some spectacularly pungent yet devilishly velvety Morbier Tradition cheese. But by all means, feel free to whip up a warm goat cheese salad (chèvre chaud) or treat yourself to some cold paté spread on some crusty baguette with a side of duck confit. And if you're lucky, there will be bubbles. Lots and lots of heavenly, yeasty effervescence that comes from le Champagne.

Vive la France! Bisous.

真正仁慈的人,會忘記他們做過的善行,他們全心投入現在的工作,過去的事已被遺忘。..................................................
