Tiger in a Jar chez nous
Archive May 2012
We are in full swing here at The Cook's Atelier! We've been busy with cooking classes and the weather has finally warmed up so we have been spending the last few days planting our potager. On the list this year are heirloom beets, arugula, swiss chard, radishes, peas, green beans, an assortment of salad greens, fava beans, and zucchini. In a month or two, we'll add the heirloom tomatoes. There really is something wonderful about using ingredients from your own garden, freshly harvested and simply prepared.
To add to all the excitement, we were so lucky to be able to spend a couple days with the very talented couple behind Tiger in a Jar. If you follow Kinfolk, you'll know they are the creative film makers who produced several films for them, including our favorites, Classic Pesto and The Art of Making Bread. They happened to be in France working for a client in Normandy and decided to spend a couple days with us in Burgundy to experience and capture on film the magic of The Cook's Atelier. We took them to our favorite artisan food producers and we drove down the tiny vineyard roads in Madeleine before heading back to the atelier to cook. We'll be sharing the finished product with you soon. A big thank you to Julie and Matt for their inspiration and new found friendship. The world is filled with so many talented, creative people. We are blessed for sure.
