Living French: Food for the Bon Vivant

It was around this time last year that I was sipping deep Bordeaux wines, eating pain au chocolat for breakfast and spending hours riding on the back of Vespa with the love of my life. Yes, this was real life. I could do anything in France and it would be ten times more glamorous because it was in France. So what if the hours I spent riding on the back of a Vespa were actually hours spent looking for a gas station that accepted credit cards–because it was in Bordeaux it was tres romantique.

In attempt to revitalize those vignettes of French life, I’ve compiled some French-inspired posts from around the web. Enjoy!
