This annoying and persistent French heat wave is adversely affecting both our appetites and attitudes! Normally summer weather in Sens consists of moderately warm days and not more than 3-4 days of beastly weather. I believe we’re now in the 3rd week of Phoenix, Arizona summer temperatures and according to the forecast, we can look forward to more of the same in the coming week.
For lunch on a particularly sweltering day I served crab rolls, beet, cucumber and celeriac salads from Le Village Gourmand. To that I added cold, rare slices of leftover grilled lamb. That worked but I wish this heat wave would end 😦
