I’ve been meaning to tell you about a restaurant for a while, after my last stay in Paris. I had been there years before and forgotten about it, it’s a wonderful bistro in the 7th arrondissement in Paris, called “La Fontaine de Mars”, it’s small and crowded, but with an airy, spacious outdoor terrace, typically French food and great atmosphere, and word must travel, because apparently President Obama ate there when he was last in Paris. I had a fun evening there with a friend, and we had ‘blood sausage’, which probably sounds terrible, but was delicious!!! Very French (although Italians eat it too). So if any of you are going to Paris this summer, you might enjoy a meal at “La Fontaine de Mars”.
My summer is rolling into gear. I will be on “Good Morning America” for my new book, on Friday June 11. The book is “Family Ties”, and I’m excited about it. It is about a young woman who inherits her sister’s 3 children, when her sister dies in an accident. I love writing about the relationships in families, in this case between 3 siblings and an aunt, who loves them dearly, and rises to the occasion to bring them up. (She is only 26 when the children move in with her, and I focus on the time l6 years later, when she is in her early 40’s, and the kids are almost grown up.). I hope you like the book!!
After my appearance on Good Morning America this Friday, I will be off to my usual summer plans, with my children for part of the time, in Italy and France, I’m going to a fabulous art fair in Switzerland that I have always wanted to go to. And in August, I will be curating an art show myself, which I love doing. I still miss the contemporary art gallery I had, and closed a couple of years ago. The art world is always so exciting. So I’ll keep you posted on my doings. I just wanted to let you know about my appearance on Good Morning America, and give you a hot restaurant tip, in case you go to Paris.
More soon, love, Danielle
