Lots of Snowy Photos....Eymet


I thought that I would share some photos of a very snowy Eymet with you. The village looks so pretty covered in snow......



It is as if time has stood still, the village resembles the old post cards of over 100 years ago...



Love the light, everything seems almost pure, the colours pop out at you....


This is one of my favourite shots, it is the garden of a local chateau situated in the heart of the village...


It is for sale and I think that it would would make a fabulous hotel/spa.....


This is the bridge which leads from the Chateau (situated on the left of thisphoto) into the village....the river is currently frozen with most of the ducks and swans taking refuge under the bridge as this is the only part of the river that is not frozen solid!


Looking across the river to the backside of the church....


A very snowy and peaceful village square.....


Entrance to the old chateau where events take place in the summer.....

Exterior of the old chateau..........looking rather solid.

And last but by no means least, a photo of the exterior of Maison No. 20 with lots of lovely pure snow in front of the house....



Amicalement from a very cold and still snowy Eymet, Leeann x

  2. Bonjour Leeann. I suspect Eymet looks beautiful year round, but you are right, the village is just so peaceful- looking in the snow. It is just as if the internet, and automobiles, had never happened. Thank you for sharing with us. Watch where you step out there! Veronique (French Girl in Seattle)

  3. I agree - it's like stepping back in time. I have only seen snow in France in the Pyrenees. When I lived in the south-west winter was fairly mild. I love the photo of the bridge with the pretty street lamps and Maison No 20 with the fresh snow.

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



Ingredients:


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

Method:

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…
