About me

Introduction Far away in the remote French countryside, there is a magical farmhouse known as Pistoulet, where there is most certainly a happiness that feeds the spirit. It was here that Mademoiselle J. (Jana Kolpen) went for a period of repose one magical summer and came away with a renewed sense of life. At Pistoulet she learned many recipes to help cure the wounded heart, give strength to the weary, and bring out the best in even the shyest guest. Visiting Pistoulet highlights the beauty of life and the joy and true essence of living. The Spirit of Pistoulet is not about a time or place. It lives in your heart and your home, and can be found in everything you love and hold dear. Jana Kolpen and Mary Tiegreen's creative collaboration began with the first Pistoulet endeavor, "The Secret of Pistoulet," which was published in 1996. The magic of Pistoulet has guided their friendship through many books, dinnerware, travel, and countless other creative adventures.
