The above photo has nothing to do with food and everything to do with the Caribbean. I thought I might remind you all of the wonderful places we are going to in 2019 with Paint Provence with Tess.

Antigua late February/early March..Lake Powell and Antelope Canyon 6th – 13th April . The Red Rocks of Roussillon in Provence. The lavender Fields of Provence both trips in June along with a visit to the Camargue.IMG_8711.jpgIMG_7677.jpgIMG_1655.jpg

Not forgetting the Charente and Norway and I am hoping to organise a trip to Budapest in the autumn. Visit my website for more details.

But for now I have reached my last night cooking for my lovely family in Saint Paul, I may have another night here or there and it has been a fabulous six weeks. I have very few photo’s to show you, but my friend Alison took a couple the other night.

The Starter.

Carrot, beetroot and ginger salad with shallots, corriander and parley with lime juice and tamari. Shaved parmesan and black truffle caviar to start.


Followed by Salmon and roasted summer veggies.


Then gluten free raspberry tart with marscepone and orange and cardomen syrup.

I am home in a few days and back in my studio so I will write again soon.

A bientôt
