Fab French Shop Update...

The latest Mathilde M order has arrived with another due mid September.
Included in yesterday's delivery were lots of lovely fragrant items including:

Gorgeous gift sets containing a hand towel, packaged soap and fragrant smelling angel.

There is something special about the packaging and the metal boxes that these come in are so pretty, love the attention to detail.

These rose shaped soaps are a personal favourite and they smell gorgeous, hence the name of the perfume "Rose Ancienne".

This is the box that they come in, complete with dark grey ribbon.

Lots of little soaps which I think make the perfect gift, we sell a lot of these and package them in lovely Mathilde M paper carrier bags complete with angel and Mathilde M logo.

We also have more cushions in stock including these large rectangle shaped cushions with angels kissing.....these look great when displayed on a day bed.

New for 2011 are these fabulous canvases, click on the photo and you will see how detailed they are....

Love these hand towels and again these make for a gift with a difference. We also have matching cushions and curtains in stock. This design is a personal favourite and the cushions have been one of our best selling items in 2011.

Hope that you enjoyed the update, I am now off to update the online shop.

A tres bientot, Leeann x

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


1/2 cup honey
1/4 cup dried lavender
4 egg yolks
2 cups milk
1 cup heavy cream


1. Bring the milk, cream, honey, and lavender to a gentle boil in a saucepan over medium-high heat.

2. Remove from the heat and let steep for 10-15 minutes. Strain and let cool a bit.

3.In a separate medium bowl, beat the egg yolks, then gradually add som…

a good idea..

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.

Last weekend we bought a lot of wine cases as we thought that they would make good storage, as shown in the photo above.

I particularly liked the idea of making a set of drawers with them or perhaps even a serving tray like this.

We have quite a few boxes and wine box ends so any ideas that you have would be gratefully received...
Mille mercis et bonne semaine a tous.....

French Food Friday.....

This week we are taking a break from the skinny theme, and indulging in some healthy pears with some also very healthy chocolate....

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…
