    Happy Christmas Clotilde-
    I hope its wonderful and filled with good food and family and laughter.

  • Happy holidays to you, Clotilde (mine is Chanukah, but Christmas works too). We recently found Chocolate & Zucchini and I have been reading it happily. All best from the rainy gray of New York City, and I hope you will visit our online season’s greeting at (not an advertisement).

    Have a wonderful time, and I look forward to tasting it here next week! Thanks for the graceful writing and the inspirational food.

  • Joyeux Noel a vous deux, Clotilde and Maxence! Have a wonderful holiday!

  • Deb – Hope you have a nice time too, take care of the little one, feed him your beautiful marshmallows! :)

    Linus – I’m very happy you enjoy C&Z! Sorry about the holiday/christmas/hanukah thing. In France, Joyeux Noël and Bonnes Fêtes (happy holidays) are used interchangeably, without any assumption about the other person’s religion or beliefs, more a general season’s greeting thing. Christmas is not really a religious holiday to most people (and it’s not to me), it’s more about family/gifts/food!

    Jenny – Have a good night at La Folie, and report back about the menu! :)
