Bienvenue les amis!
It's time for La Fete!
I warmly welcome you to
enjoy our music
Please make yourself comfortable...
As our most special and honored guest, you are invited on a petit gastronomic tour...
We shall begin with the luxurious Cote d'Azur!
The spectacular "Blue Coast" of the French Riviera is known for sublime weather, glamour, and fresh local delicacies...
This delightful Salade Nicoise is most refreshing
on a balmy Riviera evening...
Please enjoy a sparkling glass of Perrier au Citron, a perfect accompaniment to the brisk sea air....
Let your taste buds now travel north
to the glorious Emerald Coast of La Bretagne....
May we tempt you with a couple of local specialties?
A colder climate requires hardier crepes, n'est-ce pas?
These lovely "galettes de ble noir", or "crepes Bretons" are made in part with buckwheat flour, and are filled with sauteed, dilled mushrooms, and fromage Madrigal...
Certainly, no proper meal of galettes is complete without an ice-cold cider made from the best apples in France....
This one happens to be alcohol-free, for we know you have a long drive ahead of you...
But before continuing on your "Simply Irresistible" adventure, please allow us to cap off the meal in....
And what could this quintessentially Parisian dessert possibly be?
Les macarons, of course!
Which flavors will you choose?
Ah yes, the classics....chocolat, fraise, et pistache...magnifique!
To accompany these colorful sweets, please enjoy un cafe under the sparkling and romantic Parisian moon and stars....
And to thank you for your most kind visit
to Cafe Gypsy, I would love to give away
Jamie Cat Callan's brand new book!
"Ooh La La" will be released May 28th...
I'll draw the winner May 25th!
Just leave me a comment, and I will enter you in the drawing...
Bonne Chance et Merci!!
Thank you, dear and beautiful Anita, for allowing us all to connect with each other in this fun and fabulous way!
