Summer means "Still Life with Rosé"

Daydreaming about another June afternoon when I was in Marseille, France and fellow friend, travel writer, and partner in pastry (thanks for the rhubarb strawberry tart recipe!) Anne Banas. and I decided to meet for a "rosé and cookie" break (cookies: Marseille's special navettes-- those boat-shaped biscuits faintly touched with orange for which the city is known) on one of our private room terrace's at the Intercontinental Marseille. First, we got "into" photo shoot mode though! Loved the models.  There was nothing left of them when we finished.

I could not find the Triennes rosé here in the Twin Cities, but I was recommended another very lovely rosé wine at Surdyk's -- a nice dry one--and a good price (about $12): the Domaine de Paris Cotes de Provence Rosé 2013. Yes, I know this is a photo of an empty bottle.  (I drank it before I decided to take the photo. It happens.)

I will  be buying more.
