Purchases I regret not making...
On my last day in Paris two weeks ago I found Diptique had created a limited edition candle called ‘Paris’ only available at the Saint Germain store... a really heady scent (like the heady summer) & only available in the larger size. Alas! My luggage was already too heavy and I worried it would break in my carry-on... All the way back in Melbourne now, I so wish I’d bought that candle... 🗼
What are you doing right this instant? 💦 🇫🇷 Que faites-vous en ce moment même?

My fixation with Julia started right after I graduated from college. A time when I’d been knocked rather abruptly off my college know it all pedestal to the real world, and a highly demanding job where I knew...absolutely nothing.
At a time when I felt particularly vulnerable, she gave me hope and the first stirrings of a suspicion that perhaps my passions might be greater than the rules I thought I had to follow.
Happy 106 to this woman who still inspires me. Share with someone who inspires you! #dreamchasers #carpediembaby #francophile

A little update from Maddy...⠀
My husband Philippe doesn’t read my writing very often; I think he hasn’t quite figured out how social media works. So, I feel completely free to write about what I’m up to this week!⠀ ⠀
Philippe is a fanatical opera lover and is away in Austria at a Wagner opera festival with good friends and his 101 year old mom, all of whom are equally in love with his music. It’s not just that I can’t appreciate the music, it’s that it’s too loud for me, and my music education stopped at Motown. When I imitate sopranos, he gets furious! ⠀ ⠀
So he’s gone for a week and I’m home alone and loving it! What am I doing?⠀ ⠀
1. Working out and taking long walks and pictures, naturally stopping at every pastry store to drool.⠀
2. Flâneur: That means walking around with no special aim in Paris. Love it! By the way, the term comes from the Pont Neuf.⠀
3. Organizing and cleaning up--tackling storage area Place Dauphine⠀
4. Catching up on blogs, especially my favorite book: The Judgment of Paris⠀
5. Lunch with girlfriend who took me to the George V!⠀
6. Watching Netflix and Amazon Prime Video⠀
7. Baking Canelés in my own crazy way--recipe to follow⠀
8. Eating cheese, baguettes, and fresh fruit for dinner… in bed⠀
9. Getting to bed early and enjoying sunrise

Cabernet Franc is getting a resurgance of popularity these last few years, even thought it's always held a place in our hearts. This beauty comes from Pope Valley and Napa Valley! 🍇❤️ Raise your hand if you're a Cab 'francophile!' ✋🏽
Night is beautiful here. I could see painting this.
Julia made cooking and eating so so fun.

I like eating out, especially in France and I love their salads. But I also love my salads the way I make them. This one is perfect for hot weather, drizzled with a shallot and parsley vinaigrette. I love #chicory
which the French call #endives
- There’s a couple of slithers of smoked salmon and a local gooey goats cheese which I mopped up with fresh baguette. I had a cheeky glass of white wine on the ‘terrasse’ of our mobile home. As it’s holidays innit.

Le Chevrot. A delicious goat cheese made in the Loire Valley. This chèvre is made by an old cooperative in the village of Celles-sur-Belle near Poitou. It can be either pasteurized or unpasteurized. Le Chevrot sports a bloomy wrinkled rind. The interior is dense and smooth. I would not exactly call this cheese goaty. It lacks that tangy goat cheese flavor. This one is fairly young and has notes of herbs, hay, butter, nuts and white button mushrooms.
Classically, this would pair well with a Loire Sauvignon Blanc. Some other great options would be a Colombard/Ugni Blanc blend from Gascony or a dry Bordeaux Blanc. Champagne and rose are also great options.

🇨🇬RÉPUBLIQUE DU CONGO🇨🇬: Bantu-speaking largely displaced and absorbed the early Pygmy inhabitants around 1500 BC. Several #Bantu
kingdoms built trade links leading into the Congo River basin. After Portuguese explorers reached the mouth of the #Congo
in 1484, commercial relationships quickly grew between the inland Bantus & European merchants. After centuries as a major transatlantic trade hub, direct European colonisation of the Congo river delta began in the late 19th century, eroding Bantu power. The area north of the Congo River came under French sovereignty in 1880 as French Congo, then as Middle Congo in 1903. In 1908, Middle Congo became part of the newly organised French Equatorial Africa (AEF). The French designated #Brazzaville
as the federal capital. Economic development centered on natural-resource extraction with little regard to the cost of African lives. Following a high-profile role during WWII, Congo benefitted from post-war colonial admin and infrastructure spending. When the AEF, was dissolved, she became the Republic of Congo in 1958 as an autonomous colony. Independence followed on this day in 1960. Happy independence day to our #Congolese
