It is too hot to work is the subtitle on the recipe for Cold Avocado, Orange and Lime Soup by Beatrice of La Tartine Gourmande. This is also a classic french song: 'Il fait trop chaud pour travailler'.
It was also a title chosen in June 2005 by Pascale Weeks who suggested a big pitcher of Citron Presse (lemon, lime, water, ice cubes, touch of sugar) as the perfect thirst quencher.
I also found advice to french workers Heat can kill, even at work on how to adjust your work habits to the weather.

To finish on a Food note, I chose to illustrate this piece with a photo of 'Tarator Soup', a cold cucumber and yogurt recipe from Bulgaria that I discovered courtesy of Villa Stresov based in Borovets.
Beside offering accomodations in a luxury villa, they also have Gourmet Wine Dinners available.
