Fromage fouette and baies roses… a taste of Spring

fromage_fouette_9704February is at last grinding to its weary end. Much as I hate the thought of wishing even a single hour of my life away, I do find February enervating. This does not just relate to this February, but to every February that I can remember which, come to think of it, probably isn’t many. However, I am feeling perked by the fact that it’s not a leap year and I can say my farewells to February 2013. March holds the magic day when the clocks spring forward, the evenings begin to lengthen and the world changes. There is a feeling of new life in the air and I start patiently looking out of the office window for the first signs in the forest canopy of that green haze that says Spring has arrived.

As to the picture.The fromage fouetté is a fresh, light and airy cheese from Brittany which is delicious when eaten with a sprinkling of baies roses.

Oh yes, there was something good about this February. I just received a notification that I’ve been short listed as the Pink Lady Food Photographer of the Year 2013

    First of all congratulations! If keeping your fingers crossed works, mine are. I’m with you about looking forward to March as maybe the snow will stop. I too enjoy the first green haze on the trees…a sure sign of spring.

  7. Spring is in the air. The image of the baguette decorated with a baies roses topped fromage fouetté overshadows dismal February, Roger. There is light. Congrats on being shortlisted. Which photo did you submit? Can you send a link as I couldn’t locate it?

  8. Hey, congrats! Best of luck to you.
    That cheese looks divine…makes me want to return to Bretagne.

  13. Many congrats, Roger. Please keep us posted, and let me know if I need to go anywhere and vote for you. I’m not sure that’s how this competition works, but I’m happy to help if necessary.

    On a different note, I am always happy to see the end of February, because March is my birthday month.

    Hooray for Pink Lady, March and “fast time”!

  17. Light and colour that foretell spring. I’ve never eaten that cheese but I do love baies roses with goats cheese (and foie gras too). Well, I’m writing this on 2 March, so it seems we’ve all made it through another February! Congratulations on the shortlist place.
