Version FrancaiseThis summer has been most work and no play, but far from making me a dull girl. I’ve still enjoyed some classic summer pleasures, spent time with fabulous people and visited great places. Here is a small selection of the past 2 months. The photos are taken with Instagram (so no cred to me) and if you want to follow me I’m @lafoodgeekette.

Summer time is the best fruit and vegetables time. I can’t get enough of berries, basil, cherries and tomatoes. I will miss it so much this fall and winter. These sweet,  funny multicolored tomatoes was a gift from my mother in law.

After over a year of working on the project, we finally signed the lease to our new restaurant. We still have a couple of months of renovation work to do and then we’ll open this autumn.

Dad came from Sweden to help us out with the renovation, stayed 3 weeks and we went a weekend to Beaujolais, broke some ceilings and floors in our restaurant and ate heart-shaped potatoes.

We met the people behind the delicious coffee at Mokxa Café.

No summer is complete without brunch. And the best one is in my home.

I have been trying our some recipes and am still trying out for the perfect Polish pickled cucumber.

I celebrated my 10 years in France. With cheese, wine and fabulous friends of course.

And you? What have you been up too this summer?
