Love, French tradition & the art of the Picnic
We have always had a passion for food, even as we were little. French Italian background, cultures of legendary culinary tradition have taught us the importance of dining as a true art of living.
My mother, who came from Normandy, always concocted simple and delicious traditional French dishes. Our kitchen always served as a place for reunions and sharing for our family.
During our summer vacations in the country, we feasted on delicious French products that were unavailable abroad: baguettes, cheese, meats and wine. I remember grand picnics at the palace of Versailles, in the Loire and in Provence— all prepared with love and eaten by family and friends in the beautiful French countryside.
