Back today from traveling and am totally charmed by the news of this contest, which hit my inbox first thing this morning. Historic fashion house, Lanvin, will be holding a mother-daughter cooking contest in honor of their first children’s clothing line: Lanvin Petite. Jeanne Lanvin and her daughter, Marguerite, are the inspiration behind the contest that will unite the best recipes for chocolate cake, with the winning recipe selected and prepared by the executive chef at the Ecole Ritz Escoffier in the Ritz Hotel in the Place Vendôme Paris. The winning mother-daughter team will be guests of honor at an afternoon goûter/tea held by the brand on December 4th. Ooh la la, this contest is just beyond cute — we’re sure Alber Elbaz has a sweet tooth and we think mother and daughter team Salma Hayek and Valentina Pinault would be an adorable addition.
