The Art of Leftovers. The Julien Trilogy: II

The art of leftovers

Last weekend, before we set off for Sitges for an afternoon at the beach, I walked into my kitchen and found that our friend Julien had prepared us a quick lunch. In his own words he called it the art of leftovers.

Julien always arranges the food with all the care as if it were art. In my next post featuring him, he will be spilling the beans on how he does it.

I interviewed Julien. The post will be yet to come because I still need to transcribe it from my notebook into my computer. The interview was quite an epic piece of work as it was conducted 90% in French (lots of sweat on my behalf), 5% in English and 5% in Spanish. I’m still on my way to being fluent in French, and hadn’t written so much French since I was 13 years old and lived in New Caledonia for a year… I can’t wait to share the interview.

Thank you for visiting!

    I look forward to reading about this. Your photos are lovely. Makes it seem like a leisurely meal.

      Thanks! The truth is that Julien always tries to make even the simplest meal an experience. Now I just need to find the time to transcribe the whole thing… and understand my messy handwriting 😉

    Oh. My. Goodness. What beautiful photos of FOOD. The bread looks so much like my loves of “Five Minute Bread”–can’t wait for your post about Julien..

      Me too… ( need to find a lot of time to transcribe it!). The bread is from the bakery around the corner 🙂

    Amazing food – can’t believe it’s leftovers! Lucky you, trotting off to Sitges! We visited there a few years ago. Such a beautiful area. Loved Figueres and Cadaques too. I remember the Dali Museum, L’hostal Nightclub and a beautiful paella dinner. *sigh*

      Yeah its amazing how he arranges everything! Oh I loved the Dali Museum too, so wonderful. All the little coastal towns around there are beautiful. 🙂 I’m glad you’ve had a chance to visit them.
