Classic French Vinaigrette

frenchdressing5

I cannot begin to explain how wonderful French dressing is.  Out of all the salad dressings out there, I find this beauty to have the simplest ingredients yet arguably, the most delicious flavours combined. The sharp and strong dijon mustard pairs wonderful with the tart flavours of the vinegar and pickled shallots all wrapped nicely in a fresh coat of olive oil. It is absolutely delicious! I love this recipe of French vinaigrette by David Leibovitz and found it to be one…

Summer in Paris

Paris2.12

Oh Paris. Need I say more really? Our summer in Paris, though short, was glorious. We only stayed in the city for two days as the focus of this summer’s trip was really the South of France. But of course Paris, even if for only a few days, never ceases to prove its charms and has still captivated me through and through. Having finished all the tourist spots on our first trip two years ago, we opted to focus on just getting lost…

Antibes

What’s amazing about the South of France is that every commune is unique. Each and every commune offers a kind of beauty one will not find elsewhere and Antibes is no different. Antibes is beautiful on its own right. The streets are quaint and quiet and little nooks and corners are filled with overflowing cascades of wildflowers. I loved how there’s almost always a surprise at every little street you turn be it a nostalgic window or a series of…
