Fabulous, fabulous photos

These photos are just too good not to share.

The photographer that took these; Kees Terberg is Dutch by origin and resides not far from our house in France.

He has lived in France since the end of 2006 and has set up an art gallery and also provides photographic courses.

I am sure that you will love his work as much as we do, it is fabulous...............

ps the Mona Lisa shot is a little tongue in cheek as I saw a print of the Mona Lisa that I was going to buy at a Vide Grenier today for the shop but Mr.Fabulously French (FF) was not so keen hence I resisted buying it!

French food Friday...Honey Lavender Icecream

I first tried this in Provence and loved the combination of the lavender and the honey.

By using honey as opposed to sugar you end up with icecream that is deliciously creamy and the smoothest ice cream you've ever tasted.

Be warned, though - there is a caveat...this ice cream will not freeze as well as homemade ice cream usually does. For those of you who like your ice cream hard freeze the ice cream overnight to make it scoopable, instead of the standard two to three hours after churning

Mille mercis et bonne semaine a tous.....

About Poires Belle Hélène

This classic French recipe were invented Paris in the 19th century and were named after an opera by Offenbach. What a romantic introduction for this French dessert par excellence, a true classic, found in at least half of the restaurants of the Hexagone. It only takes a few minutes to assemble this dish if you use ready-made ingredients; it is actually not much longer to prepare half of them from scratch (the poached pears and the melted chocolate). You can even make crème Chantilly and toasted flaked almonds for a deluxe version on very special occasions.

About Poires William liqueur
