Week end away

Lovers + Week End in Venice

Lovers in Venice.

We have just returned from a four days trip to Venice! Full of new ideas in our travel kit, we enjoyed the city paste & quietness of the streets, kindness of its inhabitants, the food of course and the simple beauty of this romantic city. We have tried a few wonderful restaurants, enjoyed the long walks along its little streets. I loved the vaporetto rides & the crisp light reflecting in the water.
Now back to Paris with some new ideas for our forthcoming picnics in the city. We have just had a little walk on the “Champs de Mars” this afternoor where people were gathered on the grass sipping wine and enjoying each other company. It is nice to be back in Paris!

Spring is on its way so we went to do our shopping at the “marché d’Aligre”, one of our favorite market place in central Paris.

Paris romantic Picnic + Photo tour

A romantic picnic in Paris + a photo session.

A romantic picnic with Anna and Igor in Paris. Anna came to Paris for a modeling job with her partner Igor who tagged along and met her for a few days. They had the beautiful idea of a romantic picnic in the city and a couple photo session with Olivier. The “Ile Saint-Louis” was the perfect setting for our lovers picnic. They had a wonderful time walking around the neighbourhood snapping a few fun, lovers photographs with beautiful Paris in the backdrop.

We prepared our “Amelie Poulain” picnic for them with some cold meat, a classic traditionnal home made French quiche with leaks from the market, cheese, string beans & avocado  salad and fresh strawberries for desert. Igor offered to his beautiful girlfriend a little market bouquet of freesia.

Picnic & love and some photos to celebrate the occasion and bring back home some souvenirs to share with friends and family. Perfect afternoon & they were so loving and and a perfect match, full of life and happiness.

Love Picnic Paris + Risotto recipe

love-picnic-paris-risotto-recipe

Love Picnic Paris: Risotto with broad beans and Peas & Endive salad with greek feta & cucumber.

Risotto:

  1. Bring chicken stock to boil in a saucepan, keep on a low heat while you are making the risotto.
  2. In saute pan, melt butter and add garlic and onions, allow to cook for 5 minutes.
  3. Add rice and stir continuously over a low heat until the grains start to soften.
  4. Over a medium heat begin to add the hot stock a cup at a time, allow rice to absorb all stock before adding next cup of liquid.
  5. Continue to add the stock gradually , stirring all the time for about 15-20 minutes (I prefers to cook her risotto for 40 minutes, but up to you).
  6. Rice is ready when is soft, but still has chalky “bite” to it in the middle.
  7. Tip peas & broad beans in and stir in and heat through, about 3 minutes. by this time the peas & broad beans should be ready and the risotto bubbling again.
  8. Finally stir in parmesan and serve immediately with thinly sliced parmesan on top.
  9. For vegetarian do not use the chicken stock.

Simple endives & cucumber salad to accommodate our risotto with a french vinaigrette & red orange juice.
