A lovely story. Quite touching. Bravo for the hommage to your late friend.

about those lovely disappearing corks, i've made a nice bulletin board of them and am now tossing them out in my garden dining area to pave the dirt. they're too pretty to throw away.

Mutual friend, John Pernell, signed me up to receive your wonderful missives. I have enjoyed each one immensely since being signed on in September! Re what to do with all those saved corks....they make terrific kindling when lighting the fireplace (just be sure not to use the plastic ones!). We've been doing it for years and it's much easier than running through the woods looking for twigs because we ALWAYS have corks!! Thanks for sharing the fun recipes. Where are you in France? I'm in Giverny every October. Perhaps we should meet! A bientot! Katy Farr, Washington, D.C.
