We had a beautiful dinner a couple of nights ago here in Paris. We were invited to the home of Laurence and Emmanuel Dousset. Laurence is the sister of Mary's colleague, Pierre. She and her husband made us a several course meal which, as you can tell by Jeff's position in the photo, also included some excellent, um, spirits! All of which were delicious, by the way--especially Armanac, which neither of us had tried before. We highly recommend it. And the food they served was amazing, including a rhubarb tarte, one of Mary's favorites. Merci beacoup, Laurence and Emmanuel.
One of Laurence's paintings--she is an artist--now makes its home in our apt. Here is a close-up view. It makes a lovely addition to the sleeping area. Sweet dreams!
