Rosé Poached Pears

The weather here in Ramatuelle can be pretty perfect all summer long.  One learns to understand that there are a few exceptions to paradise:  1) the rainstorm around mid-August 2) the East wind and 3) the Mistral.  Locals say the mistral winds occur for one day, three days or a week.  Well, a huge mistral...

I have always love the traditional fougasse, a big flat bread with holes i use to eat as a kid in Nice. “Fougassette” is a smaller, sugary version, with a delicious taste...
The perfect soufflé

The perfect soufflé

My Mom and I were taken to the legendary restaurant “le Grill” on one of my first visits to Monte-Carlo.  I remember the decoration and service that really brought back a sense of glamour that must have existed here back in the fifties and sixties.  Legend has it that Aristotle Onassis was responsible for the...
