L'art de vivre

La moitié
Half, as in the 50% solution. How much do you want to eat? How much should you eat? How about half?

La rentrée
Literally, the reentry, as if summer were a trip to the moon.

There is an infinite number of flavors

Le pain quotidien
Literally, our daily bread. Essential.

Le poireau
The Leek: the star vegetable of my book French Women Don't Get Fat and a staple of every French woman's diet. In France, le poireau enjoys almost noble rank.

Le terroir
An essential word: this is how we describe the soil conditions that give a wine its individual character

“Qui plante son jardin plante son bonheur ”
