La Bonne Vie

I am leaving on the early train tomorrow, headed to Paris! I am so very excited, for so many reasons. Not only am I visiting an old friend whom I have not seen in forever, but I am dying to visit Paris again, after having spent only a brief but amazing afternoon there last summer. And while I am of course looking forward to the Eiffel Tower, Louvre, and Notre Dame photo ops, I am most excited about the food...and of course the flea markets!! Paris' flea markets have been around for centuries, and offer up the most delectable culinary and decorative delights. I cannot believe I will be there tomorrow, strolling the avenues and taking in the sites and tastes of Parisian street markets. These are, after all, just as much a part of the culture as the museums or monuments. Even more so, I would argue. Food helps define a culture, and it is well known that the French love their food!

To pay homage to French cooking and cuisine, I give you a photo that defines both. The French stove, specifically La Cornue CornuFe stove; admired by food enthusiasts and designers alike, this range ads beauty to any kitchen and legitimacy to any chef.

And when a kitchen is designed to fit such a beaut, the result is masterful...
