I can't believe quite how busy I have been in the last couple of weeks. My plans to try out hundreds of new recipes have not got off the ground yet and I've been falling back on many old (Italian) staples, which is a shame being in France. Having said that, I did cook Coq au vin for Sunday lunch and will post pictures soon. Other projects underway are to create a terrace herb garden which I will blog about later and to perfect my Tarte Tatin. All this on top of settling into a new apartment and country. Crazy!
