Lucy’s Kitchen Notebook - Rhône-Alpes

rhone alpes  Lucys Kitchen Notebook   because we all love reading blogs about life in FranceLucy’s Kitchen Notebook is unreservedly, un-apologetically and totally…. all about food!

Sure there’s some day to day stuff about Lucy’s baby but, even then, the posts tend to focus on what the baby is eating!

There is a great introduction to this blog at… Introduction but I’ll try to summarise the best I can.

Lucy Vanel is an American expatriate living in Lyon.  She learned to cook in the French style from the books of Julia Child.

She met her French husband in North Carolina, of all places.  As she explains… At a local restaurant one night, she noticed he was dining by himself. “I invited him to join our table; I knew what it was like to eat alone in a foreign country.”

I warn you, this blog is full of gorgeous photos.  You’re going to put on at least a couple of kilos just looking at them!

There are also plenty of thoughtful and interesting articles and loads of mouth-lickingly tasty recipies as well.

For starters, why not try… Asparagus Sorrel Soup followed by a main course of … Civet de Canard pour Deux (big tummy, you see…)  and then a little taster of  Chevre Chaud complemented by some Pyramid Shaped Cheese and then, just to finish off…. some of Brigitte’s Poires Martin Sec au Vin with just a tiny bit of Tarte au Citron (just for luck!)

All washed down by The Best Bordeaux I’ve had in a Long While!

Full up yet?

Well, I’m having to loosen my trousers (not a pretty sight!) just from writing this post.

Over to you, dear reader, rescue me from culinary heaven and dive in and have a bite yourself!  The menu is at ….. Lucy’s Kitchen Notebook

All the best
