Are you having fun?. I am! Yesterday on a very last min (you know, a la mexicana), my friend and one of our awesome contributors,  Juliana & I got together to stir up a lil mex storm. Despite the fact that 5 de Mayo is a Mexican-now-turned-into-a-Mexican-American holiday and therefore lots of connationals have strong opinions on how our neighbors-del-norte celebrate this date, I love the media coverage towards Mexican culture and specially to our food; and since I don´t want to lecture you on what is right or wrong about this day, I think is best to show you how those Mex-pats like me `honor´it…as always with tons of good food and one (or two bottles) of Tequila… (if only I had Mezcal in hand too…).

Happy Cinco de Mayo!


Hello les amis!. For this second collaboration Karen and I went for a french flare with two classics: a provençal cocktail Le perroquet and a modern twist on an oldie, Le Suze (my favorite drink since then!). We paired them with a generous display of cold cuts, saucissons, artisanal cheeses and a tremendous fougasse that le hubs baked specially for us. For those of you who cannot drink alcoholic beverages we included a lovely mocktail as well. Hope you enjoy them!. Heidi-

The aperitif is a “ritual”; especially in South of France where I am from. We drink those refreshing drinks such as Pastis, Suze, Kir… just to open the appetite. Karen -


Hello everyone, here is our second installment of the regular contributions we started last week. This monthly section will be a collab between my friend Madame Karen Gaignon, a  super talented  french sommelier and myself. While Karen will be sharing some exclusive cincin hour recipes for our site I will pair them with some simple and easy savory  or  sweet recipes of amuse bouches, entrées or main dishes that will perfectly marry with K´s creations.

Shall we start?.
