En Provence 2013


Here is Madame with our amazing clafouti dessert. We decided to call our host mom Madame instead of her full name (Armelle de Vergnette) for several reasons.

1. Her name’s a bit of a mouthful no matter how you cut it.

2. Madame seems more dignified and respectful.

3.It makes me think of the cat-crazy yet graceful and sophisticated character from “The Aristocats”. They are rather similar; both are chic, 70+ French women with awesome hair.
