    Are you back home now? I've been desperately seeking fraises du bois here in the U.S. (I'm not sure what they are called in English - "wild strawberries?" "woodland strawberries?"). Do you see them at your markets? If so, what's the season? I remember having them in Luxembourg in October a not more than two years ago.

    OMG, I'm dying for strawberry tart these days, and it's something I still haven't come to master myself. This one looks SO divine!

    Deborah - No, sadly, my mother has no garden! The berries are from the market.

    UE - You can sometimes find fraises des bois on Paris markets, but they usually cost an eyeball, and can be disappointing. I prefer those I pluck during mountain hikes, or those Maxence grows on our windowsill.

    Alice - You know the recipe is in my cookbook, right? :) See you tomorrow!

    That is BEAUtiful! I'm eagerly awaiting for your book to be released in the Philippines!

    (Though I do expect a paucity of Spinach dishes, which is a shame because I love spinach, heh heh :)

    I remember when strawberries used to look like that . . . they are picked too soon here (California) and that awful yellow-white color inside.

    You inspired me to make my own-- yours still looks more luscious, though, even when taken with a camera phone!
