Quite honestly, there are few times I dislike Paris; the cafes, art, and the excuse to eat buttery pastries all day. Without a transatlantic trip on the calendar this spring, Food Intolerance and I decided to do the next best thing; a French luncheon. This week, the ladies who lunch will tote bottles of wine and Parisian stories to share over classic French cuisine and conversation. Our menu:
Coq Au Vin
Fresh bread with Dill
Mixed Green Salad
I went to my girl Ina Garten for this menu which feels a bit like cheating. Truth be known, I have yet to purchase a copy of Mastering the Art of French Cooking. I have faith that as usual, Ina will pull me through just fine!
