It is me, Claude. . .

A French mouse with something to say

And this year’s Lifetime Achievement Kitchen Inspiration Award goes to . . .

S Q U E A K!!!!! Theez eez zee most exciting thing that has ever happened to me! I got theez amazing award for my work that I do! I hope you like to read about eet.


Claude is looking a little down in the mouth lately.  And who could blame him?  He’s been hanging around in my kitchen for at least twenty years.  Here I am going on and on in my blog about all the people and things that inspire me and how I am the big-time cooking expert and I never once even mentioned Claude.

Before I introduce you to Claude, believe me when I say I am dead serious about the important place he has in my cooking life.  A day without Claude would be like a day without a stove to cook on or a spoon to taste with.  I would be a lost soul without Claude.

Claude is dedicated.  Who else do you know that expresses his love of food and cooking by wearing a sweater with a big orange carrot on it every single day?  He’s downright insouciant, that’s what he is!
