1869-au-marche.jpg

Today’s episode takes you to the Côte d’Azur! Yes, the south of France! This is where Murielle Iris lives and works. She has created her own company, Les Sauvages. She collects wild plants around the city of Nice : wild lavender, wild roses, thyme, cynorhodon, orange blossom, etc. Then, she transforms them into tinctures, infused oils, herbal teas, etc. She sells her product on local markets and on Internet.

She enjoys sharing her knowledge about plants with people who live in the city and can’t afford to go in the nature to collect plants.

I asked her how she knew when to pick up a plant and if this was a special moment. Now imagine the wonderful paysages of the Nice region, hear the wind and the bees and meet our guest!

Today’s episode takes us back in the kitchen. The girls and I cooked a clafoutis a typical summer fruits recipe. I dit it with apricots, but the classical version is with dark cherries. Clafoutis are also very good with peaches.
If you bake it without the fruits, it’s a « tôt fait », typical of the Burgundy region.
In Brittany, this kind of recipe is made with « pruneaux », dried prunes and it’s called « le far breton ».

In today’s episode, I take you to Paris, at the Musée de Cluny, national museum of middle ages. This week’s episode is published in two parts. Yesterday, I gave you the information about a fabulous chef d’œuvre from the Middle Ages : the golden altar frontal of the Basel Cathedral. You learnt in which cirumstances the altar frontal left the cathedral to be sold at auction in 1835. In today’s episode Christine Descatoire, curator at the museum, tells you more about who bought it and how it became part of the Musée de Cluny’s collection.

In today’s episode, I take you to Paris, at the Musée de Cluny, national museum of middle ages. Christine Descatoire, curator at the museum, tells you about one the chefs d’œuvre that belong to the museum. It’s the altar frontal of the Basel cathedral’s treasury. It has been made for the consecration of the cathedral that took place in October, 1019 as a special gift from the Emperor Heinrich II . Basel used to be part of Burgundy. The city is now in Switzerland. How that altar frontal made of gold became part of the Musée de Cluny’s collection? This is what you are going to learn today and tomorrow. Yes, this week I’m going to publish this story in two episodes, so you can really enjoy being at the museum!

Today’s episode is about my meeting with my friend Adeline who is a patissière and also a podcaster. She runs the podcast Girls in Food. We had a work session yesterday, then we had lunch in a very nice little restaurant in rue de Condorcet. It was my first meal at the restaurant since the end of lockdown. Life is almost back to normal.

Today’s episode is the last of the Journal de bord series that I started at the begining of lockdown in France. This morning, Lisa and I went to the market and we did a few recordings as we were walking in the streets. You may also hear a few swifts! The weather is nice and hot, the swifts are very happy, they can find a lot of food.

This is our fifth week after the end of lockdown. Sport within some clubs is now possible again. Last sunday I was back into the forest for the Nordic Walk session. And last monday, it was the first kung-fu class I had since the end of lockdown. Well, the teacher did some class on the Internet, but last monday it was in person and in a particular place of the Courbevoie stadium. This is what is this episode about!

This is our fourth week after the end of lockdown. Lisa went back to school for 2 days last week because we were volunteers to do so. But at the end of these 2 days the teacher told me that it was Lisa’s last day at school. After the shock, on Tuesday evening, I decided that it wouldn’t be that way and I sent an email to the teacher. You are going to listen today to what happened next.

The weather is very nice and warm in Paris these days. Lockdown is over now for us, although we are not allowed to go farther than 100 km. Last friday we took our car and went to Rueil Malmaison only a few kilometres away from our house. Where did we go, this is what you are going to hear today!
