On Food & Table Setting

There is something about the food in France that I sometimes - often - really miss: at the top are all the types of cheese, the meat {lamb! rabbit! games!} and the fresh vegetables - from the garden. Oh, and the breads, croissant and yoghurts. And wine. And... 

Fruits are also readily available and so sweet and juicy. For example, right now is the time to pick up the cherries in Switzerland, and the apricots are currently growing on the tree below my window... 

And there is no good meal without a proper table setting - such as the one below...

Above in the plate is a "mendiant d'aubergine" made of goat cheese mixed with pistachio & nuts and rolled into grilled eggplant slices. It is served with a green salad - straight from the garden, and red radish from my Grandma's garden. This is a starter only of course!

What is it that you miss most about your home country, or perhaps your mum's cooking?
