    it feels ever so slightly untoward to make any determination of ranking on your gorgeous offerings because everything you make is just so beautiful beyond belief BUT I think this photo spread might be my favorite to date. it includes a lot of the things I like, including both of you. thank you for inspiring me all year. xox

    • Thank you JJ – your praise means so much to us! And this particular comment is truly one of the kindest and most thoughtful we’ve received. It’s also quite noteworthy that we couldn’t have done this little spread without you and your oh-so-perfect gift of delicious “Sofia” blanc de blancs bubbly from the storied Francis Ford Coppola winery in Napa – what could possibly be more inspiring to two cineast foodie gals than that – cheers, dear one!

    Oysters + champagne = I’m jealous! I adore your blog and look forward to more movie suggestions in 2012.

    • They were both delicious and thank you so much, Josephine – we really do appreciate your kind words and are looking forward to a new year of food and film, as well!

    Happy New Year ladies! I can’t believe how beautiful this post is. Okay, gotta know…are they beausoleils?

    • Happy New Year to you, too, James and thank you for your nice comment! Yes, these were, indeed, beausoleils – you have a very keen eye for the bivalves and we are mighty impressed!
