Is it me, or has the kitchen become a giant cavern with barstools? And huge chalkboards. Listen, if you need a chalkboard to lay out the entire week of children’s activities and art camps and “crafting” you live in the wrong country. Come to my château. We churn butter and knit. My kids are HAPPY. Also, that marble island is the size of a Steinway grand and I can’t reach the pain au chocolate. It’s making me nervous. Your two-hundred pound pendants belong at Carnegie Hall. Let’s reassess.
Here is the lovely spot where Giselle makes our food at le château. It’s small. And efficient. Really, it’s just six copper pots and a cutting board. She can whip up a lot in this humble space. More than you can create with whatever the hell this thing is. Really? You should not be able to toast a croissant, warm sausage and make a cup of coffee in the SAME APPLIANCE, you lazy assholes.
At half past nine this morning, we were served tarragon omelette, radish tartines and, of course, a pot of Carte Noire. Just a typical Tuesday morning, loves. That’s all there is. There isn’t any more.

College kids need lazy appliances, Madeline. Brains still forming…May 27, 2014 at 8:37 pm
No, Therese. They need parents that teach them to be creative by playing with a box of buttons.May 27, 2014 at 8:50 pm
I had a stale strawberry Poptart for breakfast. Feeling pretty good.May 27, 2014 at 9:34 pm
I hope you at least toasted the monster, Dani.May 27, 2014 at 9:37 pm
Madeline. Subway tile is still cool. RIGHT? I just remodeled and now I’m confused.May 27, 2014 at 9:55 pm
Jamie, subway tile belongs in SUBWAYS. Sorry, love.May 27, 2014 at 10:00 pm
I have one copper pot. But I never use it because it’s a bitch to clean. I love your blog!May 27, 2014 at 10:13 pm
Bisous, Helen! xxxMay 27, 2014 at 10:16 pm
Is that a dead chicken in a bag or are you just hanging dough?May 28, 2014 at 9:18 am
That is, indeed, a dead chicken. She’s only been there an hour and we have more important things to think about than salmonella.May 28, 2014 at 10:35 am

I want countertops like yours. Something made of wood that’s two hundred years old. I’ll jam my Global knives into them and laugh with glee.May 28, 2014 at 5:21 pm
Petra, marble is so tedious. Life is too short to worry about wine stains and scratching from your impromptu flower cutting sessions. Wood is honest. Have FUN.May 28, 2014 at 5:38 pm
