C&Z’s Second Birthday Party!

C&Z turned two ten days ago, and just like last year I wanted to throw a little party to mark the occasion, celebrate all the fabulous things it has brought me, and give Paris readers a chance to meet.

So! Mark your calendars: the second annual C&Z party will be held on Wednesday, October 19th at L’Homme Tranquille, a small neighborhood restaurant Maxence and I love dearly. It’s a warm and welcoming little place we’ve been going to on a regular basis for a couple of years now, and we’ve made friends with Antoine, the son of the owner. It was the very first place I thought of for this party, and Antoine and his mother were kind enough to let us organize it there.

The party will start at 8pm with a prix-fixe menu of 36€, buying you a three-course meal — apéritif, wine and coffee included. It will be a very casual evening of food, drinks and good conversation, but since space is limited, it will be reservations only. If you’d like to join us I would be delighted: send me an email no later than this Saturday (October 15th) with your name, telephone number, and the number of people you’d like to come with. I will confirm the reservation, and send you the details and instructions then. Hope to see you there!

  • Oh, if only I were in Paris! For so many reasons, but how dearly I would love to be there. (The restaurant sounds fabulous too.)

    I raise my glass to you. Unfortunately, right now, it’s a cup of coffee, but it’s a strong, black cup from Seattle.

  • Merde! I’m arriving in Paris on 21st of October so will miss your lovely celebration! If my plans change I will let you know pronto, but otherwise, Happy 2nd Birthday and hope you are good and truly spoiled with lots of fab pressies!

    would have loved to fly over if i were still on the other side of the atlantic… have a great time, although i am sure you and everyone will!

  • Oh, too bad, I will have left Paris 2 days earlier! The dinner sounds like it will be lovely, you’ll have to tell us all about it!

  • Oh how lovely– I only wish I could . . . *smile*.

  • Too Bad pour moi aussi, j’ai déjà un dîner de prévu le même soir avec une amie qui vient de Province … Mince alors :-(
    A une autre fois Clotilde. Je penserai bien à vous en cette occasion spéciale !

    Clotilde you write “it’s a warm and welcoming little place we’ve been going to on a regular basis for a couple of years now.”….that’s JUST how I feel about chocolateandzucchini…It will, I am sure, be a night of warmth and welcome…hugs to all!

    any Sydneyites out there..we too could celebrate….

  • Clotilde, I found this lovely blog of yours just a few months after you started it, and I’ve enjoyed it very much. You entertained me through an exhausting pregnancy. Now, however, the baby is a year old, and it’s been a while since I’ve been able to visit C&Z as often as I would like. Your passion for food is inspirational. Congratulations on your two years, and on your book deal! I sure wish I could be in Paris to celebrate with you and Maxence. In a couple of years we’ll come back to France, and we’ll bring the baby and introduce her to your wonderful homeland. I hope to get to meet you then! Keep on bloggin’!

  • Meg

  • Parfait! A resounding oui…I will be there to join in the celebratrations…congratulations!

  • Clotilde :-) Chouette peut-être bien que c’est Oui !

  • I raise my glass to the you.Unfortunatelly I will not be able to be in Paris on that date which is such a shame I might have a glass of champagne on the day . Have fun!!

    Congratulations on both the second anniversary of C&Z as well as your “early retirement” from the strictures of the 9-5 work week. Keep up the stellar work!

    A question: Reading of the upcoming party at L’Homme Tranquille reminded me of your first at La Table de Lucullus; what’s become of Nicolas Vagnon?!? Did he return to his native Brittany and open a restaurant there?

  • Alisa

    Thank you for C&Z, and thank you for last night. It was a really nice evening.
    Gros bisous!
