The kitchen continues to be a place in the home that draws my eye, and when La Canache’s IG feed spotlighted @cat_in_france‘s stove in her Normandy kitchen, I immediately went to her account and then her website and now want to share with you, TSLL reader and fellow Francophile. I am enamored. After my post from two weeks ago focused on precisely this stove, seeing one in a French kitchen demonstrated how old and new can work so amicably together.
While I have rounded up three images from Cat’s Instagram feed, you will want to check out everything she has shared. Her story is delightful as to how she ended up in Normandy, and now she offers cooking and foodie workshops which incorporate visiting the local markets, shopping at brocante fairs and enjoying the beauties of northern France. As well, she offers pop-up online brocante shops on her website – see what they are all about here – so that no matter where you are in the world, you can peruse beautiful finds from France and bring them home.
So about her story. She was living in southern California, met her now French husband and ended up now living with her many animals and children and husband (one of her pets is a Cavalier King Charles, so you know I took note) in a 376 year old farmhouse. As a writer and a photographer, her life is not a dream; it is indeed real, and she is my new favorite follow, and perhaps yours as well (if you don’t already follow her).
