As I was watching one of my favorite television programs last week, as I was doing my normal channel surfing, I stumbled upon “Bravo’s Top Master Chef“. This program begins with certain challenges that each chef/contestant is required to perform. One of the challenges, that evening was to prepare a “picnic-type 3 meal preparation on one day…that will be served on the very next day. After much toil and labour the chefs, along with viewing audience, which included me…discover that the picnic was in fact a flash mob picnic a la………. Le Dîner en Blanc®
FYI: Flash Mob: “a group of people mobilized by social media to meet in a public place for the purpose of doing an unusual or entertaining activity of short duration.”
although, I never took French classes in High School or College, it was evident that it translated to “Dinner in White” (I did however spent 3 weeks in Alsace-Lorraine, France oo la la). I have heard of “Black and White Partys” before, but this seemed something much unique and special. The Diner en Blanc, was held with elegantly dressed men and women in an all white setting; the picnickers set-up their tables with Linen Table Clothes, layer out Silverware or Flatware (not plastic cutlery) and placed China Plates with Stemmed Glasses and Goblets in there correct and impeccable order —not like any picnic that I ever attended. My picnics have been more in the line of an itchy blanket, beef hot dogs, BBQ potato chips and flavored soda pops, with paper plates and napkins and plastic sporks (lol)!...please visit my blog at www.jackelinbrooks.com for the complete blog post.
