Exquisite Paintings by Provençal Artist

There is something about the Provençal countryside that draws artists in. Maybe it's Mont Sainte-Victoire, like the famous artist Cezanne painted, or maybe it's simply the nature of Provence.
Local artist Virginie de Rohden lives in the South of France and is inspired by the Provençal scenery. She enjoys painting outdoors, and you will find that most of her paintings are of flowers and plants.
We are excited to feature Virginie's artwork on Saveur du Jour; each painting will make a great addition to any home!

Easter as celebrated in France

In both the United States and France, Easter is a religious holiday. However, the French tend to celebrate Easter as an entire weekend, rather than just on Sunday. The Easter celebration continues on Easter Monday, which is a national holiday in France, and businesses are closed. Memories are made spending time with family and friends!
Easter egg hunts are popular on Easter morning with children in France. However, the eggs are usually chocolate eggs, not hard-boiled. Chocolatiers create giant oversized chocolate eggs for gifts! 
Onto the most delicious part of the day, the Easter meal! Lamb is traditionally served with an herb rub for the main course, then a quiche or salad follows. Lastly, dessert! Something chocolatey is popular for Easter, but a berry tart isn't uncommon either.

Recipe for Lavender & Honey Butter


Prep time: 5 minutes 
Refrigeration: 2 hours
Yield: 1/2 cup

Ingredients
  • 1/2 cup (125 ml) of lightly-salted butter, softened
  • 1/2 teaspoon (2.5 ml) of dried lavender flower
  • 1 teaspoon (5ml) of honey
Preparation:
  1. In a bowl, mix all of the ingredients together.
  2. After the ingredients are evenly mixed, drop the butter mixture horizontally on a sheet of plastic film and roll it to form a cylinder shape, about 4 cm (1.5 inches) in diameter. Wrap the cylinder ♥by tying the two ends of the plastic film. Refrigerate for at least 2 hours.
  3. Using a hot knife, cut the butter into slices of desired thickness. The butter is delicious on croissants, crêpes, english muffins, scones, and pound cake!
