The Fragrance of Loulay

Chef Thierry Rautureau has taken the ambiance of Loulay to a whole new level. He has paired with local perfumer Molly Ray to create his own fragrance. We are incredibly happy to announce that you can now bring the fragrance of Loulay to your home. The fragrance is a medley of fig, green tea, lime, and bergamot. Thierry describes the scent "starting on a vibrant note when you spray the eau de toilette on yourself, then slowly mellows and becomes part of you”.

The fragrance is offered as an eau de toilette, diffuser, and luxury soap. Offered individually, or as a set, this scent is one that you will want to follow you around everywhere you go. Take a look at our online store for more information.

New Recipe: Blueberry and Corn Salad

There is something about the sunny days and warm weather that really inspires a dish that is fresh and served cold. We love this recipe because it uses ingredients that are fresh from the garden it can really highlight those flavors with a very simple and easy recipe. 

Simple and easy are always wonderful words to hear when you are thinking about whipping a dish up. This one is guaranteed to be a success at your next summer BBQ.

Try this recipe out at home and share it with us! Post the pics of your dishes on Instagram and be sure to tag us, @chefinthehat.

I stole this one from Tom Douglas and made it mine
