“Born of an American father and a French mother, I grew up in the
States fully bilingual with feet firmly planted on both sides of the
Atlantic. I have spent a lot of time in France over the years, and
would like to share with Cincinnatians some of the things I love most
about France – its gastronomy, its savoir faire, its wines, its
appreciation of beauty, comfort and well-being.”

Foods include fine charcuterie from Fabrique Délices and Rougié,
cornichons and tapenades, mustards, olive oils and vinegars, sweets,
fine jams, honeys and seasonings from first-class regional producers,
a selection of French cheeses and wines; table linens from Provence,
Comptoir de Famille and Couleur Nature; handcarved olive wood serve
ware from Berard; Laguiole cutlery; bath and body products from
Compagnie de Provence and Fragonard fragrances.

The store is a bright, light filled space with the feel of a European
shop. Some of the owner's family antiques are used to display the
colorful and tasty items that are available at Le Bon Vivant.

Le Bon Vivant is a new place to find rare treats for your pantry or to
put together an impromptu picnic for a lovely spring day.
