The French Palette

New book/ cookbook, French Kids Eat Everything: How Our Family Moved to France, Cured Picky Eating, Banned Snacking, And Discovered 10 Simple Rules For Raising Happy, Healthy Eaters by Karen Le Billon, is a mouthful.

This is the story of an American woman who moves her family to her husbands native France.  She discovers French children eat their veggies, sit patiently at the table and gasp, enjoy food!  Her 10 simple rules and some recipes make for a charming little book.

In contrast, let me just share the story of my brother whose first trip to France at 16 resulted in a 15 pound weight loss from basic starvation.  My favorite story was the hamburger specially prepared to appease his American palette.  However in French form, the burger was only cooked on the outside and then left raw on the inside.  He ate around the edges.

Maybe Le Billon is on to something though – get them eating everything young and they’ll have a more exploratory palette for it.



Modern Art meets Dance

You may recall the Nick Cave image from the Moving Target Dance blog a few weeks back?  Well it’s about time I followed up and introduced you to the former modern dancer turned artist Nick Cave.

Creator of the Soundsuit hee has taking art into mixed media, movement land complete with noise, shape and joy!


iPad Catalogs

You can now flip through your catalogs from your iPad?  Wow…ok!

I have fond memories of mail catalogs as a kid.  I would circle, tab and rip out what I liked, compiling a scrap-book of fashion.  I also played an odd game with my siblings where we would name as many variations of a color that would exist in a JCrew catalog.  IE.  Pink:  Watermelon, Azalea, Rose, etc.  It was actually a lot of fun.

Now a new generation can be inspired and visually stimulated by over 200 brand catalogs on google catalogs and  catalog spree, without killing trees.

It lacks the lustre of being in your mail slot, or the feel of flipping through the thin, glossy pages… but I’m sure I can get used to it.
