I have just purchased the sweetest little teapot from Sur La Table (don’t worry, it was more than 50% off!). It is a deep eggplant color and will be lovely for morning tea every day, since the cast iron pot will keep the tea warm for several hours. So pleased.
Also, we just took a Provençal cooking class there and it was great fun. Everything was delicious, especially the onion tart and the ratatouille. Mmmm.
