A month-long celebration of French food and wine inspired by Spring’s offerings and a few notable American’s in Paris: Ernest Hemingway, Julia Child, and Ken & Wendy Gordon
Hemingway intrigued us with his depictions of life abroad. In A Moveable Feast, he recounts his experiences of early 1920’s Paris, most of which involved food and drink.
“Drinking wine was not a snobbism nor a sign of sophistication nor a cult; it was as natural as eating and to me as necessary…”
– E. Hemingway
Julia Child inspired our nation to cook. Mastering the Art of French Cooking made the best of French cuisine accessible without all the Escoffier crap.
“How can a nation be called great if its bread tastes like kleenex?”
– Julia Child
Ken & Wendy are stoked to explore their new fascination of a food loving nation with some tasty culinary adaptations.
“In the Southern part of France where the women wear no pants, and the men run naked in the streets.”
– Polly Sykes
