Dinner by Candelight. The Julien Trilogy: I

Candles floating

We have been very happy to receive one of Mr. H.’s best friends, Julien, at our place for a whole week. Julien is the most Frenchest Frenchman I have met. Also, he adores cooking and is a wonderful gourmet cook. This was great for me because it meant that I got to sit back and relax while somebody else did the cooking for a few nights.

Despite the fact that these are scenes From my kitchen, I’m categorizing them under From other kitchens because I didn’t do a thing. That’s not quite right: I made the photos and did the washing up afterwards. Here are a few of the scenes of a dinner by candlelight he offered us one night.

    The herby potatoes look good. I’ve never done them like that

    Lucky you with an in-house personal French chef! The first course in particular looks trรจs magnifique.

    I’m jealous, that food looks so good! Is that rosemary with those potatoes? I always do them with rosemary but next time I’ll make sure to add onion and, what is the other herb?
