La Tartine Gourmande and Nexus One


I know. The title does neither sound nor look like a yummy chocolate dessert or a delicious vegetable soup.

But it’s fun! And it might surprise you as much as it did surprise moi. The truth is that the engineers at Google have been pretty nice with me. Consistently. It’s the third time that they are asking whether they can use La Tartine Gourmande inside one of their projects.

This time, we are talking about Nexus One, the new phone that they’ve just launched. So if you are curious about it, simply check their link here and click on the Browser icon to get the demo. You’ll see that my blog is featured in it. More particularly my post about Martha’s Vineyard. (, a technology site, talks about it here too)

I’d be lying if I said that I wasn’t excited. I mean. It’s Google!

That was undoubtedly a highlight of my day.

  10. Salut Béa! D’abord – merci pour ton blog! Moi aussi je suis Française, habite a Boston, et ai une passion pour la cuisine. Ça fait plusieurs années que je le lis et j’attends tes ‘posts’ toutes les semaines avec impatience! Je relisais un de tes vieux postings et tu parle de faire “le grand tour” et “le petit tour” à la maison de tes parents – very funny, because we too, at my parents’ house in Normandy had “le grand tour” and “le petit tour”! Anyway, I love your blog – it makes me feel at home! I’d been enjoying this for too long to not say anything!

  11. wouah ! super, mon fils me bassine deja avec ce nouveau gadget et il m’a meme fait remarque que la Tartine Gourmande y etait referencee… c’est pas peux dire 😉
