Welcome to my French Kitchen in America
Bienvenue! My name is Mary, but many people call me Mimi.
My kitchen is smaller than those found in rural France but larger than that found in a typical Paris apartment. One window overlooks an ancient horse barn and a grove of cedar trees. The other looks down a small hill.
My cabinets are warm brown and worn from years of use. Appliances are stainless steel and black. Countertops are black, too, and a bit scuffed. Nothing terribly fancy or upscale here.
But, the food is good, mostly. We'll talk more about that later.
