The month of May seemed to be all about travel and good food.

For the first two weeks I was in the south of France on a family vacation that saw us explore Nice, Cannes, Antibes, Villefranche and Monaco. From this beautiful region we ventured to Provence where we stayed in the charming city of Aix en Provence. We spent our days exploring on foot and by bicycle, we happily drank a number of glasses of very good, very cheap rosé, ate one very fancy meal but mostly very simple ones. Most of all we just enjoyed being together.

We got back to Vancouver on the 15th and then I got busy to leave again on the 29th. Time for our second annual Paris Culinary Tour. Lots of prepping and packing and making of lists but it all got done just in time and now we are here in Paris getting ready for our guests to join us on the 6th of June.

Stay tuned for a daily account of our culinary adventures in the city of light.

  1. You are living the good life!

  2. Your array of photos are once again so inspiring. What they reveal about your daily life is exactly what I imagine someone who practices culinary arts to be living everyday. They also make me think of one of my favorite quotes by Ernest Hemingway, “If you are lucky enough to have lived in Paris as a young man, then wherever you go for the rest of your life, it stays with you, for Paris is a moveable feast.”
