My Dinner with Parisien Blog

Last night I was honored to have dinner a with true Parisien, Blog, the dog.For an apero, Blog insists upon drinking only Vranken Pommery Champagne.Blog ate all of these before we had a chance...ahemWhen not busy downing his champagne, Blog is very occupied with his plastic milk bottle.
Blog insists on being surrounded by the best brocante and exquisite nature morte are everywhere waiting to be painted.
Pink roses are de rigeur bien sur.
For the poivre (pepper) un petit ange - Blog is very particular about all the petit details.
A table.
The entre was a verrine of mousse chevre chantilly et concumbre.Très Délicieux!
Blog has le bon goût (very good taste)
Vin de Bordeaux is a must.

For the very traditional blanquette de veau.
Blog is an excellent cook as well as an excellent eater.

Yesterday I spotted these beautiful "calissons roses" de chez Fauchon. - Karmic Destiny.
For dessert Blog prepared a verrine of glace "dragee" from Lenotre with framboises (raspberries) and a raspberry macaron.
After dinner Blog likes to read Le Monde to catch up on the news - in this case on a Converse "basket" (running shoe)
Blog is bien elevee (well brought up). He does not chew on shoes ever.

    I think not "pink dragees" but "CALISSONS" (speciality of Aix-en-Provence)
    Best regards

  2. Marie-Paule5:11 AM

    Calissons = on the little boxes from Fauchon (melon, sugar, almonds)

    Dragées = "sugar almonds" you had in Lenôtre's sorbet.

    Two very different things.

  3. How lucky you are ! Christian is really a good friend and I know HE IS "l'art de recevoir", I hope that you were "sous le charme" ! Enjoy your stay in Paris and your friendship with Christian and Blog....with all my kindness regards....
