La Chatte Gitane (or The Gypsy Cat) was the name we chose for our cottage in France. We chose it while on the road, moving home, from Ireland to France with 2 dogs and 7 cats in the car.
This blog began its insignificant life as a recipe book for friends and family who would ask me repeatedly for a recipe of this, that and the other.
Since then it has taken many different directions, like gypsies tend to do. Sometimes making a U-turn and revisiting familiar roads and taking a break when necessary.
You'll find recipes here, but also musings about the places we've called home, the gardens that we've established, not always successfully, the homes we've improved and the environments we've lived in. Currently, that is back in Ireland.

It's that time of year again. Elderflowers.

Rather unashamedly I link you to this recipe on my own blog  for elderflower champagne . I just cannot believe that the post is from May, 2007 and that I haven't made it since then. 
Well we are lucky to have elder near us which is clean enough to use, so I have flowers 'soaking' at this moment.
It's a must try for anyone who can get to elderflowers. 

Hiccup !


  1. Zalig hé, zowel de geur van de bloemetjes als het drankje :)

  2. Reminds me that we have a tree in the garden.... must make up some before it's too late!
