Wine & wings.......

At long last, here is the object that I promised you. Fabulous and very french wings for your bottles of wine.

I think that they would make a fabulous and very unusual gift.

They would certainly be the talking point of any dinner party and are a great gift for the person that has everything as I am pretty sure that they will not have a pair of these....

We currently have 4 in stock and maybe able to get a few extra, depending on demand.

They are 17 euros a pair and postage will be minimal as they are not particularly heavy.

You can order via email or directly through our online shop Fabulously French.

I have also added some items to the sale section of fabulously french and will be adding some more over the few days.

A tres bientot,

  5. Very nice...a good bottle of wine heaven-sent!

  6. What a fabulous idea! They are too cute.


  8. Dear Leeann,
    I haven't got the wings for wine but I did buy the exact same rusty wings that have little spikes on that you stick into candles, giving the same look. They are gorgeous and so many people commented on them this Christmas but, they can be used all year as the wine wings can. I love them. Hope that you are managing with all the snow. XXXX

  9. How adorable Leeann! What a great talking point these would make, although MOTH would want them in Melbourne Football Club colours of navy & red!! Lovely to see all the images of the Winter snow in your village - the Big Freeze in Europe has been making our nightly news here regularly since Christmas.

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…
