Summertime in France

Returning from vacation is a struggle, especially when you spend a week with friends in an idyllic chateau in Dijon. It always takes a couple days to get back into your routine. When you can bring a bit of vacation inspiration home with you it makes the transition that much easier. Whenever I travel, I try to bring a bit of where I visited home. Be it with some lovely French antiques or simply recreating that salad nicoise we devoured every day in the French countryside.

Apricot Syllabub

Syllabub is a traditional English dessert dish that was popular from the 16th to the 19th century. Early recipes called for the cow to be milked directly into a pitcher of sweetened wine, producing a frothy head, the syllabub, which could be scooped off and eaten directly.

We've paired the sweetened cream with wine poached apricots for a taste of summer sunshine. This dessert is ideal at the end of a day of outdoor barbecuing.

Spring Quiche with Pickled Radish

In between long stretches of rainy spring days, we were finally able to squeeze in a leisurely picnic in Central Park this week. We were thrilled to receive a new collection of enamel graniteware from our generous friends at Barn Light Electric. These durable, speckled beauties were perfect to pack up in to our basket and bring along for an afternoon of dining in the park.

Eating outdoors is something we look forward to all year. Nothing is more relaxing than laying in the shade under the sweeping branches of a weeping willow while reading a favorite book. We dip into our basket when lunchtime arrives and dig into our quiche that is made with spring asparagus, baby artichokes, spring onions and smoked trout. We eat our quiche with a side of pickled radishes that give a tangy crunch to our lunch. A squeeze of lime and drizzle of honey over a mesclun salad keeps things simple.

Call up your friends, pack up your picnic basket and head outside to the closest grassy lawn. It's one of the best ways to enjoy a beautiful spring afternoon. Check out some of the pretty graniteware dishes and bowls we used here.

Rhubarb and Elderflower Mojito 

We can't think of a better way to celebrate spring than with one of our favorite warm weather cocktails, the mojito. To give our drink an unexpected twist, we picked up a few stalks of rhubarb, the herbacous perrenial, at our local farmers market. A simple syrup made with spices and rhubarb takes the cocktail to the next level with added tartness and depth. This drink is the perfect refreshment for the new season.
