Photo du Jour

There are many food delights to be enjoyed in France, and most are quite simple, like melon au porto. My friend Danielle's, shown here, is a slight variation to accommodate mon petit. Normally, in summer, one can serve the Porto-- a sweet Portuguese aperitif, or apero, inside half of a small French cantaloupe, along with un morceau de jambon de Parme, an italian ham. A perfect midday snack. The fruit vendor at one of Paris's many open air markets can produce a melon that will be perfect for consumption at the time of day you tell him you plan to eat it.
C'est delicieux!
