Franklin Canyon Park is a vast wilderness located on the Santa Monica Mountains and Beverly Hills. A. \'s best-kept secrets -- Hiking, reading in the shade, places to relax-- It may be the place for a picnic. A Mercedes-Benz SUV is parked on the side of the road, next to an open field built by lazy sycamores and living oak trees in California. Alan Giro jumped out. A. Top French chefs ( Chef of Bastide until recently) His wife, Catherine, is behind him. They began unloading, moving tables, coolers, ice buckets, crates and silverware on the fence. A basket of food, a pile of linen, pillows, sunflowers and lavender. Hats, more tables, baguette, more food baskets and several large canvas folding chairs. \"Down the bigmeres! Catherine said- For the grandmothers! \"We never play lightly. \" No, indeed -- At least not when they have a picnic. For the Giraud family, picnic is like a religion. No accident, 45-year- Old Alan Giro has a very special idea of the way to have a picnic. The food has to be set on the table as a buffet and then eat, you have to sit on the blanket on the grass. He said, \"This is a hybrid --buffet. This is outside, in a place where children can run, play and bring dogs. \"In the case of giraud, that would be Olivia, a lively British Shepherd. If it weren\'t for the headband that made Giro thick, fluffy, silver hair disappear prematurely from his eyes, they would look very similar. And the food? \"The nature of a picnic is simple,\" Giraud said . \". \"I think good cheese is important. Nice sandwich, look. Good company, good day, good river. \" Well, eighty-six the river. \"You\'re out there, you\'re cool, you have some food and prosperity --- Where is foie gras? \"Finally, it is. \" Where is foie gras? \"Go beyond simple moments. Giraud held this special picnic in honor of the Bastille Day in July 14. If he seems to have surpassed the peak with six of his people Believe it or not, it\'s very simple for him. Every one is a delicious picnic food. The pickled Cavaillon melon balls served in their crust. A sandwich, like the Nicos salad in a roll, gets better sitting overnight. Tomato- The delicious roast veal is very cold. A pie that is both gorgeous and sturdy and can be transported. The morning before, while Giro was shopping at the Santa Monica farmers market, his basket was filled with fennel, Thistle, radish, melon, zucchini, tomatoes, goat cheese from the Redwood farm. When other family members finished their lunch in the garden of giraud \'pico -- Home in the Felix area- 1920 houses in Spain- Giro works in the kitchen. He was wearing loose shorts. His feet are bare. Catherine came in with a plastic container with a worried expression on her face. \"Alan, I thought it was mashed potatoes,\" she said in French. \"I put it in the microwave. Alan\'s eyes were wide open and seemed to explode. \"My frangipane! \"He looked inside with it and cried. \"How long did you shoot? \"I don\'t know ---not too long. \"He was ready the night before so that he could use it in the fig pie. After a series of attacks that Catherine seemed immune to, Alan calmed down. \"No problem,\" he said. \"I\'ll do it again. Catherine slipped out outside. Alan went ahead and checked frangipane. Finally, he shrugged his shoulders and turned his attention to the holiday at hand. He told me that Bastille Day is not a picnic day in France. \"They just opened a bar in the square,\" he said . \" \"There is a portable bar in every village. They started drinking. It has nothing to do with food. Zero. Nothing. \"Well, what happened at the end of the bus day? They attacked Bastille. They cut a lot. So I don\'t think there is tete. It\'s a traditional Provence dish, but it\'s also a visual joke: a veal pie stuffed with sausages and mushrooms; They look a bit like birds but have no head. \"I was always interested when I was a child,\" he explained . \". \"Is it a bird? Does it have no head? \"Although he had never done this before, he thought that cooking at the bottom of the bus would be interesting. \"Wen Blanco has been stewed, but we\'re going to use champagne,\" he said. And tomato. Of course we have champagne. \"But first, he prepared the melon he bought from Wither family farm, the best -- It is famous for growing potatoes. A family of carwalon, which is treasured in France for its delicious cantaloupe. The flesh of each color is as large as grapefruit, and mature perfectly; $1 per piece, also very cost-effective. Traditionally, one would cut them in half, and during the depression one would choose wine or some form of Muscat, a sweet white aperitif or sweet wine. Giraud fished out the meat with a melon ball, and then he marinated the ball in Muscat St. Muscat. Jean de Minerva- He poured out of the bottle the last time he went to France. Then he put the ball back in the melon. \"Basically, that\'s how you drink during the picnic,\" Giro said. \"For the children, he only sprinkled sugar on melons. He wrapped them in plastic film and put them in the refrigerator. Then the poor. He fried onions and chicken in the crew. iron skillet ( \"The best thing made in America \") Then add garlic and parsley. After the cold, he added raw sausage scrap to the bowl and added mushrooms and some thyme. He took his industry- Plastic film size roll-- Giraud is a real fan of plastic film. He put a scalper between the two scalpers and thin the veal pounds with a heavy pot at the bottom. After he passed them, he was ready for some help. He filled some sausages on the scalpers, folded both sides, and rolled them up. Next, he tied it up with a tricky chef knot. Can I handle it? I think so. Surprisingly, a chef is perfect for picnic food. Like pan-architecture --bagnats. This is the juicy sandwich you made in advance and wrapped tightly in plastic so that the juice will penetrate into the bread-pan- Barnett means pain. - \"Soaked bread\" in the Nicos dialect \". Giraud remembers eating this while growing up. \"Holy. Tropez on the beach for sale pan- He said. \"This is typical of the South. \"On the bread side, Giro purchased the fokasia roll from Il Fornaio. \"They are soft,\" he said, with a slight pinch between his fingers, \"but not too soft. At the same time, the poor are brewing. After browning, he took the pan to deg with champagne and added the filtered tomatoes. The chef takes a little time to think about where he will build the sandwich assembly line and then clean up a place. He put the pot away. Bagnat ingredients. For some reason, Thaksin trusted me to cut the rolls in half, but he couldn\'t help but steal a look and see if I did it right. This is just a chef. In fact, Giraud enjoys the reputation of a chef who likes to work with him. When I sliced it, he carved the Thistle onto the crown and he cut it into paper -- Thin on plastic mandolin. He made a charming Thistle and fennel salad with lemon juice, lantern grass and black pepper. The scallions and radishes made another salad. Then quail eggs go in and cook ( Just use ordinary eggs). Gilo cuts cooked tomatoes. He said: \"I don\'t want to buy Chuan heir, they don\'t have much juice. \"Everything is ready, take out $14 Italian tuna with olive oil from Trader Joe. Spread noodles on the top of the bread; His best olive oil is drenched in the bottom. He layered the tomato slices, then sprinkled with flour, \"as juice. Then there\'s the Thistle salad, tuna, anchovy, radish. Onion salad, half of quail eggs and a little oil for tuna. He put the top of the roll on it. \"Schmuga! Shouted Giraud, push it down. Packaging these things is an art in itself; Giraud demo. The sandwich is in the middle of a plastic film. Roll things up--tightly. Supported by extra plastic on both sides, rotate tightly until the end is like a rope. Wrap both ends on both sides, then wrap tightly with aluminum foil. Of course, the fig pie is still controversial. Giro mixes butter, sugar, and eggs together, then adds almond powder and flour to make a new egg roll. He thinks he can rescue some microwave things first. He scooped a little in the mixing bowl and tasted it. \"If I were a pastry chef, I would have died! \"But no harm was done. After competing for the crust with very soft dough ( The large roll of the plastic film saves another day as he can expand between the large sheets of paper) He divided the figs in half and then decided that it would be more beautiful if he separated them. \"I am the king of figs,\" he said. The next day, your picnic begins and the whole area is spectacular during the picnic. The food was arranged on a table covered with a small piece of green cloth; Cheese is displayed on the perfect straw tray. There is no paper tray for this family: a meal, this wonderful food is worth a ceramic dish made of mustard, olive green and stainless steel cutlery rolled up with napkins. Two children of the girl-13-year- A few days later, 12-year-old Camille and Antonin- Friends help themselves excitedly. Alan used an oversized knife to carve suvason Catherine, who was recently smuggled from Lyon. Everyone likes Cavaillons, although we want to know if the kids get these without alcohol in the uncomfortable minute. Alan secretly filled more of Muscat\'s stuff with our glasses. Alouettes is a crushing pot- It\'s juicy and delicious. The children drink sparkling pink lemonade; we drink rose --who\'s to know? Anyway, without wine, who can enjoy cheese? Then Giro cut the beautiful fig pie. We picked it up and ate it with our hands. Wonderful frangipane melts in the crust of almondy. The figs -- The first black mission of the season- Full of taste. This is a spectacular end: Giro is really the King of figs.
