A Taste of Garlic


Basket full of Rain – My name is Molly, and I am a recent graduate of Hamilton College, in the frozen tundra of upstate New York. I am working as a teaching assistant in Rouen, France for the 2010-2011 school year.  I write stories, letters, and incoherent blog posts.  I love rose macaroons and swimming in cold water.

La Prochaine Fois

Reviewed – December 15, 2009

La Prochaine Fois is Cathy’s journal for the three things she loves most: art, food, and language. It is, I have to say, a strangely seductive blog with beautiful photographs, beautifully organised on the page (with rounded corners and all that stuff) and just enough words, no more and no less.

There is a lot of chocolate and pâtisserie love in this blog and I was surprised to see, from Cathy’s photo, that she doesn’t have a tummy the size of Belgium. She’s lucky then as I seem to have put on 2 kilos just reading her blog.

Although Cathy is based in Evreux in Normany, she seems to get out and about quite a bit. There are blog entries from Lyon and Paris (and even one from Germany… Mannheim but, I’ll let her off that one!)

My French Country Home

Reviewed – June 19, 2010

I’ve been planning to review My French Country Home for a long while now but it was only today when I was up to my shoulders in dog poo (yes I was reviewing another Paris blog), that I thought… “Bugger this for a game of soldiers” and decided to decamp to the open spaces and fresh air of Normandy.

So, what can we expect to find here?

My French Country Home is Sharon’s blog and Sharon says of herself…

“British born, I adopted France as my home place a long time ago . My husband is French, our four wonderful children, three horses and lovely dog don’t really mind being French or English . Our friends are from all over, but we all share the love of good food, good company and beautiful surroundings. As my children grow older, I have more time for things beyond the family routine; interior design, writing and painting. I love living where I do, the way I do . I hope you enjoy visiting my french country home.”

Un nouveau départ – Alix – Originally from California, left my heart in Seattle, now living and teaching English in Upper Normandy, France.

If you know of any other blogs from English speaking expats living in Haute-Normandie, please let me know and I’ll add them to this page.

And if you decide to visit any of the blogs shown on this page, why not leave a comment and say hello? It can sometimes be a lonely business (or, rather, hobby) being a blogger and an unexpected comment or email can really put a sparkle on the day!

All the best

 Haute Normandie   because we all love reading blogs about life in France
