Dijon Must'art

As a photographer, one of the things I love most is the opportunity to meet interesting people.  Today was no exception, as I photographed a ceremonial mustard seed planting atop the Fairmount Hotel's organic rooftop garden.  Let me explain...

Dallas' international sister city is Dijon, France.  In conjunction with bringing a very impressive medieval Burgundian sculpture exhibit to the Dallas Museum of Art, the "Dijon Delegation" is visiting Dallas, learning a bit about our city and inspiring many of us to, hopefully, one day, visit Dijon.  The delegation consists of Michelin-starred chefs, wine experts, city officials, and the director of the Musee des Beaux-Arts, Dijon.  The chefs are even cooking on October 1st at the Texas State Fair!

So today was a press reception, and mustard seed planting. Students from the Dallas Le Cordon Bleu College also attended. Here are a few photographs from a very enjoyable time!


  1. A friend of mine says Le Cordon Bleu is a great place to dine. It is off 635 and Webbs Chapel. Willie

  2. You make me miss Dijon!
    How can I fit it in...?
    wish they would all come to NYC too

  3. "Pah-dun me, do you have any...". Sorry, I couldn't resist. Looks like a fun event, and great photos!

  4. Ah, Dijon!!!! Mustard and wine, what could be better?
