A taste of Provence, Roquefort-les-Pins

HOME MADE TOMATO AND GARLIC PIZZA, LIGHTLY BATTERED ZUCCHINI FLOWERS (ALL FROM THE GARDEN) > TOMATO SALAD WITH FOUR DIFFERENT VARIETIES OF TOMATOES FROM THE GARDEN… ADD SOME CÔTES DE PROVENCE ROSÉ AND YOU HAVE IT ALL

The rain seems to have followed me all the way to the South of France ! I do realise that I seem to mention the weather in every post but this topic becomes the national obsession during the summer months… and it’s rubbed off on me.  We did however get some sunshine yesterday (yes, more weather talk) and soaked up the rays over a long family lunch (yes, more photos of food). My sisters’ mother* and her husband are wonderful cooks and masters of Provence cuisine.  Plus, he is a fantastic artist: he has an exhibition coming up in September. I’ll find out more about the details and send you a link soon!

*Some clarification: my two sisters are my half sisters – same Ausie father, different mother.

    J'ai la chance d'avoir eu un éventail de goûts à Paris, Versailles et Rambouillet. Je reconnais, maintenant, cette explosion de couleurs. C'est donc là d'où vient son grand secret culinaire. Il était, pourtant, facile à deviner. Grâce à toi, j'arrive presque à sentir le doux fumet qui caresse l'objectif.
