More Parisian Hospitality
The three times we've gone to Paris we have enjoyed the kindness and hospitality of people who are almost family. Two of those people are Marie and Ines (sorry Ines, I can't make accents work in blogger!). Each of them has hosted us in their spare rooms in the past and they both made us lovely meals this time around. Ines prepared a delicious lunch of chilled keftedes (lamb meatballs with Greek herbs) and a Greek salad which hit the sun-beaten spot after our flea market excursion to Clignancourt. Sadly, I had no camera that day. What you see above is the end of Marie's wonderful dinner party. She came up with a fruit and port wine pairing that was particularly good. Quarter a small melon, scoop out the seeds, fill the indentation with fresh raspberries then pour about a teaspoon of port wine on top and you'll see what I mean. Oh, and if you have a raspberry-melon colored tablecloth to go with, all the better.
