Inside this Spring Issue

2013 SPRING CoverBONJOUR

I recently attended a French event at the exclusive Sofitel hotel in Melbourne and, as expected, it was truly a French affair. There was a great crowd of Francophiles all dressed Parisian style, along with fabulous French entertainment and delicious French delicacies. These included a beautiful, colourful display of pastries. They were a feast for the eye but I realised, much to my disappointment, that it was going to be impossible to devour each piece.

At the event I met Kerrie Hess, whom I discovered is famous for her fashion illustrations. If you don’t know who Kerrie Hess is, you will find out in this edition.  French Provincial’s Kerree French caught up with Kerrie, to discuss some of her more recent French escapades! 

Claude Monet’s garden at Giverny is one of the most popular tourist destinations in France. While many Australians have been lucky enough to see the artist’s exquisite paintings of his Giverny garden currently showing at the National Gallery of Victoria, Keith Hall took a tour of the real-life gardens immortalised in these famous paintings.

On page 34, Frenchwoman Marie Nicolas shares everything she loves about her favourite holiday destination – the famous seaside town of Biarritz, which is always packed with summer holidaymakers soaking up the sun, surf and wonderful cuisine of this spectacular part of France.

It’s nearly “hunting” season again in the Périgord. Jo Walmesley tells us everything we need to know to get our hands on some edible diamonds – those famous, smelly little fungi known as “truffles”.

Until the next issue, Bonne Lecture,

Jenny
