Food of the French Riviera

I am finally back from vacation and have so much to report. (Well actually, I was back on Monday, but have had quite a busy week. Apologies for the delay in posting!) I spent a week touring Provence and the Cote D’Azur (French Riviera), and everywhere we went was absolutely beautiful… and delicious. I don’t know how anyone could restrain themselves with all the pizza, homemade pasta, pastries, and confections. Here are some of my favorite moments in our French culinary adventures:

Tomato Tarte -- Sheet of flaky dough, black olive tapenade, and cherry tomatoes on the vine
