Emile Henry Giveaway!!

The fine folks at cookware.com are going to give a charming Emile Henry oil bottle to one of my readers in the US or Canada.
 Click on the keyword Speaker Stands and take a peek at some of their other products.
I think this Slate color is charming.

Leave me a comment telling me which color you would choose and I will pick the winner Wednesday, May 12 at noon EST.

I like the yellow and blue together... very French.
To get you in the mood I want to include my Meme's (French for Granny) salad dressing recipe.
It is perfect for those delicate Spring greens in farmer's markets and gardens everywhere.

1 medium clove garlic
1 teaspoon Sea salt or Kosher salt
1 teaspoon dried thyme or 1 sprig fresh thyme
2 teaspoons dijon mustard
fresh ground black pepper to taste
2 Tablespoons  red wine vinegar
1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil
2 teaspoons water

In a large salad serving bowl crush the garlic with the salt using the back of a spoon. Add thyme and dijon mustard making a rough paste with the garlic and salt. Add vinegar and water. Drizzle in olive oil while whisking.
Add baby greens and toss just before eating.

Good luck and happy eating!


  1. I'm always looking for good salad dressing recipes so thanks! Check out the article in the NY Times a couple of weeks ago about Salad Days--The Cheater or something like that. Pretty good recipes in there too! I'd pick a black or slate Emile Henry because I think they are very cool colors for kitchens and go with everything. I picked the black Le Creuset!

  2. oh -fun giveaway! I'll have to try out this dressing recipe; I'm always looking for a new one! I think i'd LOVE the oil container in white -is that totally boring of me? They're all so pretty but I like things basic.

  3. I love these so much! I'd go with blue. I really love the combo of yellow and blue though....
