Oh me and my adventures. I never quite know where I will end up on Saturday, especially with camera in tow. However, today I was feeling a tad Frrrrench mes amies!
And so I was off and on my way to the purrrrfect place to satisfy my love of scrumptious food and delightful surrounds with ever so slight of a touch of France. It's this wonderful, way out in nowhere land, Market Vineyard known as Saison.
I love this place, and I suppose it has something to do with the ambience, or it could be because I love out of the way places. Perhaps, it is because it has a somewhat pretentious atmosphere which I find slightly amusing. The lovely French owner stands idly by while upper class patrons pretend to be up on all the knows of France from talking about making Chanterelle Mushroom Soup, to the time they were in Paris and "Oui, oui Monsieur, it was fabulous!" He being the ever so kind proprietor graciously smiles in acknowledgment but all the while knowing, that if he could, he would roll his eyes! And I like him!
I love his lovely grounds.
And I adore coming back with my very own pretentious little basket full of delicious purchases.
To the actual gastronomical delights that were held within:
From Chocolate Mousse
To warm bread baked with brie and pears
To Sour Cherry Tart and Raspberry White Chocolate Scones!
One thing for sure, I can assure you that I do not eat like a proper French Lady, and I was reminded of that fact by the actual woman from Paris who was visiting her grandchildren and who took a great deal of time to look me up and down after I made my selections. I, of course, turned towards her and said in my most sweet Canadian way "Bon Appetite Mademoiselle!"
Until Next Time.
