My Plate in France

I just returned from vacation in France, where I visited Loire Valley and Bretagne. Lots of sun-filled days were spent exploring 14th and 15th century castles, picnicking under trees, buying fresh veggies and fruits from markets and of course indulging in French cuisine. What I love most about French food is the pureness and simple complexity of it. Roasted ripe cherry tomatoes presented over a palette of greens. Simple ingredients that we can find in our garden, yet with an unexpected twist making it seem somewhat complex. Presentation is not a strength of mine, but after returning from France, it’s something I’d like to play around with, sometimes, just for fun.

Here are a few pictures from my travel eats.

The cotton candy was amazing! It was served with a fresh raspberry syrup and a droplet, as the syrup was poured over the candy, it zigzagged in and out of little air channels, quite mesmerizing to see.

What are your favorite dishes from your summer holiday?
