Day one of our second annual culinary tour in Paris.
Beautiful skies and warm temperatures greeted our guests this morning as they arrived in the City of Light. After a stroll down rue de Abbesses we headed up to enjoy the calm, cool, quiet of the Sacré Cœur. Amongst the throngs of tourists the interior of the Basilica is always a welcome haven and on this visit with my sweet Mum (who is a first time participant on our culinary tour) I lit a candle for my Baba who so recently left us. It was a gift to be able to celebrate my grandmother in such a meaningful place. It meant so much to my Mum and me.
Parting ways with our guests after our Montmartre tour Sarolta and I made our way back to our light and airy apartment to get ready for our opening night cocktail party/orientation.
With our culinary tour participants we enjoyed an evening filled with good food and wine and planning for our days ahead.
Tomorrow we are off to the Bastille for a traditional bistro lunch followed by a visit to the major sights of Paris. The Place de la Concorde, the Seine, and a walk through the Tuileries to the Louvre and onward up through rue Montmartre to rue de Martyrs are all on our list.
The weather promises to be fine…
