“Les seules ententes internationales possibles sont gastronomiques…”(Léon Daudet)

je crois que la gastronomie et l’amour ont tout en commun… car pour les 2, il faut prendre le temps nécessaire, afin de réussir un repas délicieux et raffiné qui satisfera nos convives, même les plus difficiles… 🙂

“The only possible international agreements are gastronomic…”(Léon Daudet)

I do believe that gastronomy and love are closely related… why? – for both, we need to take the necessary time to prepare a delicious and refined meal that will please our guests, even the most demanding ones… 🙂

  1. That is a beautiful shot of the French flag. Thanks for the link for the 44 Classic French Meals! I’m so happy that I never visited France as a fussy youth that will only take American food. Now that I’ve developed a more sophisticated palate, I have something to really look forward to when I visit France – sooner than later, I hope! 🙂

    • you’re sooo right about the American teenagers and youth, in general… 🙂 the French gastronomy has been the only one accepted by UNESCO as World’s heritage since 2010 and the famous genuine champagne – this very year… we never snack between meals, lunch and dinner are kinda “rituals”, so: bon appétit & santé-cheers! 🙂

  2. Un lendemain de fête… festif alors!

  3. I almost forgot! Happy 14th! I celebrated Bastille Day in Castres in 1973. I was a kid.
    Seems a lifetime ago. Bonne Fête. 🙂

  4. Bonne Fête, Melanie!

  5. I didn’t know. Now I’m not going to forget the anniversary of a country that has given so much to the world. Happy holidays Mélanita ^_^

  6. Bonne Fête à la belle France, Mélanie! Leslie

  7. ♪♫♪ Bon 14 juillet toute la journée, Mélanie! ♪♫♪

  8. Merci, Melanie. Bon 14 juillet. Et bon appetit!

  9. Stunning photographs and, of course, I too am raising a glass and shouting Bonne Fête to my adopted country men and women. And you are so, so right… love and gastronomie are born of the same root. And France – Chapeau… you do both SO well! 🙂

  10. Vive la République! 🙂

  11. La multi ani, Melanie! 🙂 La multi ani, Franta! Numai gânduri bune si bucurii!

  12. L’amour de la Patrie et l’amour humain ont cette différence que lorsqu’on tombe amoureux de la première, elle ne dit jamais non et offre tout ce qu’elle a…(Pensée du jour – Hervé)

  13. d’accord pour la gastronomie! au fait, j’ai ajouté une page à mon blog, un bonjour! pour un petit bain de français de temps en temps! 🙂

  14. lovely photos, as always! 🙂
