A Country Lunch

Happy Bastille Day!  

Would that we were all gathered at just such a farmhouse in the French countryside, to have lunch for a few enchanted hours.

Instead, I'll make a blackberry cobbler that has the look of clafoutis; have an oyster sandwich at Café Brioche after the farmers' market (with sauteed pancetta, red onions, spinach, and Dijon cream); and watch Philippe Noiret in Life and Nothing But or Uranus, to celebrate the day. 


  1. Philippe Noiret, my favorite French actor.
    The taking of the Bastille... even the French did something right!

  2. Yes, Philippe Noiret is the best.
    And the French aren't so bad!
