One of the things I love about traveling and living abroad is to discover old traditions from other countries . My dearest Karen has been without a doubt one of those persons which is always sharing fun and interesting stories around wines, cocktails, spirits and cordials. Pimm´s No. 1 Cup is one of those newest additions, I loved not just the cocktail which is made by mixing Pimm´s liqueur with chopped fresh fruits and veggies and carbonated lemonade something I learned is a very british thing to do in summer. – Heidi
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?.
