New York is a great place to have brunch! There are so many places it’s hard to choose one. Here is my third personal ranking from one to ten! You can have a look at my first and second one.
Only chef Hideki Nishi and his refined cuisine could come up with this poetic name for a restaurant: Neige d’été or “Summer Snow”. With a minimalist decor in shades of white and grey, the neutral decor allows you to focus on what is the most important: the food.
Lunch with my son in one of the trendiest Indian restaurants in NYC – at least this was plan A. Unfortunately, it was fully booked, so we ended up in the cheapest Indian restaurant I have ever been to! How did that happen? I’m not sure, but we did not regret it at all!
The first time I saw chef Thibault Sombardier, it was on television and I fell in love, not with him – he’s too young, but with his work and his passion for what he is doing. He didn’t win the finals at Top Chef 2014 but nevertheless he left as a winner!
Plusieurs d’entre vous m’ont demandé la recette de la galette des rois en français. La voici! Comme je le disais, je ne peux pas dire que cette recette soit la mienne. J’ai essayé plusieurs recettes, je les ai changées, modifiées et j’ai ajouté mon grain de sel. On va dire que c’est la recette que je préfère!
Mak Kwai-pui, former chef of a three Michelin-starred restaurant in Hong Kong, decided to open up with his partner chef Leung Fai Keung a 20-seat dim sum restaurant in Mongkok, a very busy neighborhood in Hong Kong – this restaurant was Tim Ho Wan.
The Epiphany – the arrival of the wise men – is January 6th, and if you’ve lived in Europe you have certainly seen the pastry shops loaded with the seasonal galette des rois – King’s cake. If you’re wondering what this delicacy signifies, read my blog post about this famous tradition.
This is a trip I’ve been meaning to share with you for a while; sorry it took so much time to come up with my blog post! Guatemala is a beautiful country and hosts some fantastic treasures. It has so many interesting and wonderful sites to visit. Guatemela is somewhat overshadowed by Mexico, which people often choose as their vacation destination, but precisely for that reason it has not been spoiled by too many tourists and stays authentic.
How did two chefs, Jeremiah Stone and Fabian Von Hauske – allegedly lovers of Cheez-its and McDonald’s French fries – come up with such a refined and ingenious menu at Contra? I don’t have the answer really, but one thing is for sure, they deserve their Michelin star without a doubt!
I grew up hearing that carrots are good for your eyes. It is true that carrots have a lot of health benefits. Several experiments have shown that beta-carotene and antioxidants, both present in carrots, have either prevented or cured diseases. The benefits to eyesight are less obvious. Unless a person has an existing severe Vitamin A deficiency, eating carrots will not likely have a positive impact on vision. Sorry to dash your hopes, carrot eaters!
