L’Arpège…

7th arrondissement, Paris By September 19, 2017 No Comments

Woah! A three Michelin-starred restaurant is going vegetarian? This decision in 2001 by Alain Passard, owner of Arpège, sure must have raised some eyebrows – no more meat! Chef Alain Passard is not afraid to risk his stars to impose his views: he wants only seasonal organically grown vegetables to be the center of his menu – no more leeks in summer, no more tomatoes in winter!

Balagan By Valerie Steinlauf!

1st arrondissement, Paris By September 5, 2017 No Comments

On a recent trip to Paris, my friends and I went to the newly opened and very buzz-y Balagan, located at rue d’Alger, by the hotel Renaissance, in the 1st arrondissement.
This is not your typical Parisian establishment, and we loved it all the more as a result! Its excellent service and inventive cuisine does not take itself too seriously, and that’s exactly what Paris needed!

TOMY & Co

7th arrondissement, Paris By June 6, 2017 No Comments

Tomy Gousset, as his name does not quite indicate, is a Cambodian-born French chef and the owner of TOMY & Co. I met my friend Debbie Kobayashi (who has contributed to this blog) for lunch during my last stay in Paris, and she was in charge of finding a place that was simple and yet appropriate for the foodies that we are, and she found an absolute gem!

Yam’Tcha: Drinking Chinese Tea And Eating Dim Sum.

1st arrondissement, Paris By May 9, 2017 1 Comment

After my son’s ardent recommendations, I started watching Netflix’s Chef’s Table, the documentary show created by David Gelb (Jiro Dreams of Sushi). He invites us in the kitchen of well-known chefs all over the world, and each episode is about their incredible path to success! The first one I watched was on Michel Troisgros, the three Michelin star chef, at his restaurant in Roanne-France, and since then I have to say I’m completely hooked!
