For the month of August, we read the book, The Diving Bell & The Butterfly by Jean-Dominique Bauby prior to coming together. Today, we watched the 2007 movie version and had a potluck of French inspired dishes. Unfortunately I was so busy in preparing and hostessing my event that I wasn't able to get any pictures in of our French spread. However here are the dishes and links to the recipes of the items that came to the table:
Steamed Mussels in White Wine
