Fab French gift with purchase..

I cannot believe that today is the 1st November which means that Christmas is not that far away.

So we are offering all Fabulously French customers who spend over 50 euros (excluding shipping) a gorgeous Mathilde M soap which smells and looks tres belle.

{this gorgeous French soap smells and also looks divine}

We have had a lot of Christmas stock arrive and we are expecting lots more this week, all of which has a French theme.

Last week saw the arrival of lots of bouquets of lovely French Lavender which is grown in Provence.

These beautiful burlap and toile de jouy Christmas stockings also arrived last week.

I think that the "Joyeux Noel" label makes them that extra bit special.

This gorgeous set of 6 antique monogrammed damask napkins also arrived last week......

French food Friday...Honey Lavender Icecream

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

For those of you that have seen the movie it's complicated you will recall that Merryl Streep made it for Steve Martin and it really looked great.

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

Bonjour from a sunny but chilly SW France,

Hope that you had a nice weekend. We spent yesterday afternoon at a furniture auction but I will tell you more about that later in the week.

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

A pear flavoured liqueur. Liqueur is a class of spirit that is usually sweet and often served after dinner. It is produced by either mixing or redistilling spirits with natural ingredients such as fruits, plants, flowers, or chocolate. Sugar must be at…
