It ain’t necessarily so – Jazz n’Cakes

it-aint-1

The little dog is Philibert Froidevaux who we purchased (or was he a free gift?) about 25 years ago at the Arlebosc bakery together with a baguette.  As we did not know what to do with him, we stuck him into a small hole in the outside wall by the house steps.  A few days ago a guest asked me “Did you notice there is a dog in the wall?”

This gave me the idea to make him the star of my first Jazz video clip based on last weeks Jazz n’Cakes concert.  After a quarter of a century being rained on, he still looks the part!

So here is the link              It ain’t necessarily so – Jazz aux Sarziers

Kate is working on a Rhone Cruise so it is up to me to keep you informed about our last event at Les Sarziers.  Jazz n’Cakes was a great success, with over 70 people attending and no cake crumb left at the end of the evening.  Here are a few pictures …

 

Baking started three days before the concert and by Saturday afternoon the “n’cakes” part of the evening was ready.

 

 

The barn had to be cleared and the seating to be set up and an hour before the concert – between a bite to eat, getting the drinks ready (and washing the hair) we moved the piano from the sitting room to the barn (Thank you Brice).

… and then the show started

The night was beautifully warm and many stayed until ’round Midnight.

PS.       Don’t forget to watch Philibert in his star role.

  1. Now that Joe is retired and playing his sax, flute, and clarinet all the time (practice, practice, practice and perform) perhaps we should head over to visit next year at Jazz time?

    1. Yes indeed. I’m not sure that my mother would have given it very high marks but it disappeared in a trice!
      All can now be revealed …. along with the coffee and walnut there were two choc cakes, two iced orange/marmalade rings, a poppy seed cake, a date and walnut, two rounds of IRISH shortbread, and a choc coconut tart.

  2. Maeggi, you are just too funny! Doggy in the shoe-boat is just too cute! I had to watch it twice to actually hear the music! Very nice and well done! Love, Sorella

  3. Thanks, that’s so cute ! Did you put him back in the wall after the concert ? I guess it is impossible, now that he’s part of the (noble) family…, right ? And now, that he’s a star !
    Mes hommages à Philibert Froidevaux (shouldn’t it be DE Froidevaux ?) ! And a warm hello to you two, too !
