C’est La V Invades London!


December has already been a pretty crazy month – as evidenced by my total lack of blog posts.  I do have a couple excuses, in case you’d like to hear them…  My photographer (and his camera) was in London until just a couple of days ago.  Ryan was over filming a documentary on Duke Special and his participation in the play Mother Courage and Her Children that was on stage at the National Theatre. I’ve also been busy working on lots of holiday bakeshop orders, and as a result, there’s not been much cooking going on in my life.  I’ve been eating lots of cereal, Daiya quesadillas and Dr. McDougall cups.  All very yummy stuff – I’m not complaining!

But just look how happy those scones are to be in London!  I can tell that they’re a little sad I’m not with them though (or maybe it was me that was sad I wasn’t there…).  Ryan brought some treats with him, and I was a little nervous about our Irish and English friends trying the scones since Britain is scone central.  Apparently everyone really liked them, which was a relief.  Phew!

I have a very special place in my heart for London as I spent my junior year of college there studying at University College London.  I lived in the city for about nine months, had my 21st birthday there and met many friends that I cherish to this day.  London also means a lot to me because Ryan and I traveled there together long before we were married or even dating.  In many ways, being in London together was the start of our relationship, so needless to say, I was a little jealous he was going to be returning to the city without me!  But it really does make me smile to see my scones there with Tower Bridge in the distance and that wonderful gray London sky above.  Hopefully, I’ll get back there again soon enough…

But for now, it’s back to baking!  I do have some fun holiday recipes I hope to post in the next couple of weeks, so please check back for those.  And since we’re now shipping C’est La V goods throughout the country, if you feel like taking a pic of one our products in your own home town, please send us the photo, and we’ll be sure to post it on the blog and even give you a little gift with your next C’est La V order!

  1. Oh I wish I had known! I follow your blog and I live in London, I would have loved to buy some of your baked goods by your husband.

    Merry Christmas! I hope he or your both returns one day – and if so please bring cookies – I’d love to by some :)

  2. Hi, Veronica! We will definitely be back, and we’ll gladly bring you some baked goods!

  3. Whoa–I spent my junior year abroad at UCL, too. When were you there? Where did you live? I was there 2001-2002 and lived in John Dodgson House, off of Euston.

  4. Hi, Mary! How crazy that you were there too! I was there ’96-’97 and I lived in Ramsay Hall right by the Warren Street tube stop. It was about a block from Tottenham Court Road. Just writing those names makes me so nostalgic…

  5. Ooh, London rules! I wish you could have gone.

  6. Oh, I am so on the C’est La V in my own hometown project!

  7. Ooooh. I miss your ginger scones. Still waiting to see you at the Calabasas farmer’s market….
    Glad to see all is well!
