June starts to feel like Summer, which officially begins on the day of the Summer solstice, or June 21, which is also celebrated with La Fete de la Musique , an evening of musical celebration organised by cities all across France.
But since Roland Garros/French Open is still ongoing , with the Ladies and Men’s finals being played on June 4th and 5th, this is also yet another long weekend, or pont on the French calendar, Monday being a holiday.
Then there are the French legislative elections on June 12 and 19, following the recent re-election of Emmanuel Macron, followed by June 21st, La Fete de la Musique, when Summer officially gets under way, with long evenings on the terrasse, and the vacation mood starts to settle in for Les grandes vacances .
Whether you are juilletistes or aoûtiens, you will be able to enjoy my new collection of recipes coming out soon in Vignes et Mets Printemps and the Été collections , for Spring and Summer.
The monthly recipe for June will be published on June 1st.
Eat in season , eat sustainably and support your local farmers .
Bel Été à tous !
