Inspirations, The Latest Buzz

The Table Comes First

Mmmm... C'est Ci Bon!

Last week, we played hooky from work and went to Versailles in Greenwich to hear Adam Gopnik speak about his latest book, The Table Comes First:  Family, France and the Meaning of Food.  Between bites of buttery croissants, Mr. Gopnik regaled us with humorous tales revolving around the family table and musings on a broad range of subjects from his Havanese puppy, Butterscotch, who is quite the “foodie”, to Brillat-Savarin (“we are what we eat”) and Fergus Henderson, a fan of “nose to tail” eating.  All of this food and fun got us thinking about where we set the table…  So whether you’re a fan of dining in the dining room…
