Well, talking about New Year Resolutions, ours was to redesign this website, make it simpler to navigate and acknowledge the fact that we are primarily a food, wine and travel blog and ressource.
So, you will know find three main tabs in our navigation menu:
You will also find our NEW E-ZINE tab which replaces our Newsletter tab.
We have maintained this website at our own cost, on our spare time (yes we do also run companies) and we have got to a point where we have an ALEXA ranking as a result of our growing traffic.
We have decided to put two of our pages under paid subscriptions:
We intend to merge these two pages and expand them into a bigger online magazine over the next few months. So, your financial support is critical to make this happen!
It is only 10USD a month and will go towards all the tools of the Internet trade (web hosting, web editing software, domain name registration, etc...) as well as maintaining and upgrading our computer and photographic equipment and associated software, which becomes obsolete every 2-3 years as you know in our digital age!
For our existing subscribers and to recognise their loyalty, we have designed a special free subscription and you have all received two emails with the "user's manual". Please action this subscription ASAP.
Finally, as not everybody wants to subscribe and commit to a monthly cost, we have also actioned a DONATE button which gives you the ability to send us 10USD as a gift to help towards keeping this site up and running, without a recourse to paid advertisement, which is visual pollution at best.
So please spend a minute to review these options and give us your feedback if you feel like it.

Many thanks in advance for your contribution.
It is winter in Australia, and even if most people don't believe it can be cold here, I can attest that we even have snow in some part of the country, including the Blue Mountains which are only a two hours drive from Sydney. So, it seems appropriate (to me, at least...) that we should populate this newsletter with winter warmer recipes. Over the next few weeks we will add French regional recipes, most of them classic dishes like Boeuf Bourguignon shown above, a few with a twist for good measure!
To access it, subscribe to our Newsletter and we will send you the link and password.
Enjoy with no moderation!
It is time to subscribe to our next newsletter which will contain French regional recipes of our best traditional winter warmer dishes. We will cook each of these recipes for you and document them in our next newsletter to be published on June 30th. We will explore six regions and their most famous and appropriate recipes. We will add six other regions and recipes to another newsletter to be published at the end of July!
