THE KINDNESS OF OTHERS

A few weeks ago, I met Corinne, an avid foodblog reader from Geneva. I got to know her when we had our "Swiss Foodblogers Picnic" in June and since then, we stayed in contact...

Corinne is a very generous and sweet person who makes you feel comfortable straight away and with whom a simple meeting at a coffee place/shop becomes unique and highly pleasurable.

On the occasion of our get-together around a cup of coffee, she brought me some little food gifts that made me very happy. Firstly, there was an immense and fr
agrant abricot from her brother's garden in Valais and a wonderful homemade jam (redcurrant and banana) that is definitely one of the best jams I've ever tasted so far! Not only is she a very skillful cook, but she is also extremely goodhearted!

Thanks Corinne for your heart-warming kindness...

Corinne's delicious jam on a slice of my pumpkin challah...
Isn't the color contrast just marvellous?

  14. Alors tu as été très gâtée... cette confiture est sublime et tu la mets bien en valeur! There's not much difference between the virtual and the real... one is an extension of the other and vice versa ;-D No chemtrails for 4 days now and the quality of the light is different. The other day, driving back from the city, I felt disoriented until I realized it was the light! Have a great day, Rosa.
