Valentine's Day in Paris

If you are looking for a special way to celebrate Valentine's Day, how about a Paris themed evening for your sweetheart? Simpler than taking your loved one to Paris, try surprising him/her with a French romantic dinner, Parisian style.

The setting: French music, a French style dinner table with fine china and an Eiffel Tower Replica as centerpiece. Then, a 3 or 4 course meal: appetizer with Champagne, starter (how about a quick and easy mini quiche?), main course, then French bread and cheese. And, last but not least: a typical Paris dessert, like those delicates Parisian Macaroons... You can try making them with our recipe, or simply have them delivered right to your door on V-Day! The final French touch: set up the Macaroons in a pyramid shape and hide his/her present under them.

Your Valentine will never forget this romantic Paris evening with you...

Marseille kicks off Capital of Culture Year

January has been an exciting month in Provence, as Marseille and the region kicked off a year of festivities, with 400 cultural and artistic events (contemporary dance, music, plastic arts, theatre, exhibitions, street art, litterature, digital art, cinema, etc.). The official opening festivities which took place accross the region unveiled many astounding exhibits, such as this one (by Yayoi Kusama), in Aix en Provence: the huge sycamore trees along Cours Mirabeau (Aix' Champs Elysees) have been wrapped in a red and white polka-dotty fabric, giving this beautiful perspective that king Rene of Anjou seems to enjoy from his pedestal.
