Thanks for offering your home!

We did, indeed, have a Country French potluck just last month, and the food 
was delicious!

And lucky duck!  Eating your way through France!  (One of my goals in life 
is to go to Baton Rouge, Louisiana, and eat my way down the River Road to 
New Orleans.)

Before offering my home, etc. I want to go to a couple of these first,
but I am fully on board to contribute something to a French pot luck!

Regarding French cuisine, there is wonderful provincial French food from
the countryside--things like ratatouille, coquilles san jacques (scallop
dish), tomato-cheese pie, souffles, quiche, stuffed crepes, french onion
soup, bouillabaise. pot roast in red wine, and more. I have a favorite
chocolate pear custard pie that is to die for! Then there is Classical
French at the base of which are lots of fine meat stocks, things like
eggs in aspic (say what?), pheasant pate in pastry crust, cream puffs and
pastries, etc.

Vive la France!

Just got back from eating and painting my way through Provence!

My favorites: the fresh cheeses, baguettes, wonderful olives, creamy
yogurt...
