Head Gardener & Chef

I garden and cook passionately and not entirely in a sane manner.  I live with my British husband, a  Paléoinformaticien -- referred in this blog as The Calm One -- in Angouleme, a lively, charming, small city in southwest France.  A native New Yorker, living abroad for about twenty years in various places, I came to settle down in a city that once inspired an earlier name for New York City, that is, Nouvelle Angouleme.  In a way, as my sister-in-law graciously said, I finally have come home.
