For the love of food things and French things... we had to share this blog with you. A few years back Mimi Thorisson moved with her husband and tiny kidlets from Paris to Medoc, deep in the countryside of France. And she started to cook a lot. Like, a LOT. Meanwhile, her photographer husband Oddur Thorisson was capturing it all. So what happens when you take brilliant photography, a lovely old farmhouse, gorgeous land, impossibly cute kids, truly wonderful food and some warm and heartfelt writing?? You get Manger! Fair warning: be prepared for a *bit* of lifestyle envy.
We picked out a few incredible dessert recipes for you, but she does the whole food gamut, from mollusks to blancmange. (Actually she doesn't seem to have done blancmange, but you get the picture.) She also has a fantastic looking cookbook: A KITCHEN IN FRANCE, A Year of Cooking in My Farmhouse .
We hope you enjoy it as much as we do! (You'll still come visit our little blog sometimes, though... right??)
