French Food

I’ve meant to post this for so long, but here are photos of most of the lunches and dinners I had this past summer while in the South of France with my mom for a week in May. We stayed at Ferme le Pavilon, a restaurant and inn in Bargemon, about an hour from Nice. Above is the first meal I had at a restaurant in the town of Bargemon. It was an amazing, rich lasagna with salad on the side.

On the left, I’ve pictured the typical breakfast from our stay: usually we’d drink fresh orange juice, French-press coffee, yogurt with homemade granola and berries, and slices of croissants with butter. The photograph on the right is my hand holding “pur jus ananas.” I think I drank a bottle of pineapple juice practically every day.

Above, my mom is smiling right before we dug into a delicious lunch. I can’t remember the name of the restaurant or where we were, but I had a mouth-watering form of steak tartare (at least that’s what I think it was!) All I know for certain is that the meat pictured above was raw, with slices of Parmesan cheese, pomegranate seeds, and carrots and lettuce to top it all off.

The three photos above from our first dinner in the Bargemon area. In addition to crispy, warm bread with butter, we both chose salads for the first course. I had asparagus with cheese, lettuce, and some kind of crumble, while my mom ate a Caprese-style salad. We both decided upon the steak filets (possibly filet mignons?) for the main course before sharing a gorgeous mousse/cake.

It’s been much too long to recall any more details about the meals pictured in the the gallery above, but if you have any specific questions about ingredients or flavors please comment! I will do my best to remember specifics.
