July 2009 Desktop Calendar

July '09 Desktop Calendar

At the beginning of every month in 2009, I am offering C&Z readers a new desktop calendar, i.e. a wallpaper to apply on the desktop of your computer, with a food-related picture and a calendar of the current month.

Our desktop calendar for July is a picture of a fish taco made from scratch (including the tortilla but excluding the umbrella) by our friends Braden and Laura, of Hidden Kitchen.

Instructions to get your calendar are below.

Here’s how it works:

1- This link will open a new window (or tab) displaying the right wallpaper image for your screen.

2- Right-click (or ctrl-click for some Mac users) on the image, and chose the option that says, “Set as Desktop Background”, “Use as Desktop Picture,” or something to that effect — the exact wording will depend on the browser you use.

3- If the image does not fit your desktop background neatly, you may have to go to your preference screen (on a Mac: System Preferences > Desktop & Screen Saver > Desktop; on Windows: Control Panel > Display > Desktop) and choose “Fit to screen” as the display mode of your background image.

4- Enjoy, and see you in August for the next calendar!

    Yum! There is a restaurant in the next town over that makes the best fish tacos I have ever had – and I grew up in So CA! No one here has ever heard of them :-)

  • I just love changing my background at the beginning of each month! Thanks for the interesting photos. People always ask about them!

  • Congratulations on your well-deserved win! Félicitations ! Allégresse !

  • Congratulations on the award! I used the book on my recent solo trip to Paris and had two lovely dinners at places you recommended.

  • Alix

    Felicitations, Clotilde! And take it from me, turning 30 is nothing — you are still une jeune fille!

    (It is “jeune” isn’t it? How embarrassing if I just called you “yellow”…)

  • Congratulations! I love the idea of a food-related desktop calendar…how cute!

  • Rachel

    Congrats on the award – richly deserved!!

  • Congrats! I’m loving the calendar. Perfect idea!!

  • Pattie McMillin

    I’ve had such fun using your desktop calendar each month! Thank you-

  • I like both your books very much. Many congratulations on the award!


  • Susanne

    Your food photos are so edible and lovely just to watch.
    Thanks for making the calendar available to us.

  • Christopher Bromsey

    Love the idea of the calendar BUT in this country our weeks begin with Sunday and end with Saturday. Otherwise it’s very confusing

  • Christopher – Thank you for your feedback. Readers of this blog read from all around the globe, but I am unable to provide localized variations at this point.

    This is why I opted for the international standard, which states that Monday is the first day of the week, and suits a large majority of countries.

    I ADORE Laura and Braden! Was lucky enough to get into one of their Hidden Kitchen dinners in early June. They ROCK!
