After running errands today, we stopped on Potrero Hill to get away from the hustle & bustle and have a glass of French wine in honor of Julia Child. An outdoor table at Chez Maman on this sunny, breezy afternoon was perfect for the occasion. We had the Millet Sancerre and the d'Aqueria Tavel in our glasses to drink a toast to Julia's memory.
Oh, the ventilation for the open kitchen was out of whack...it's about 100 degrees inside and filled with smoke. As our charming French waiter joked, cooking smells are his new cologne. Maybe not the best choice for tonight, if you plan to sit inside.
