This woman was selling cheese at the market in Burgundy. One is tomato/garlic, the green is pesto, and the blue one is lavender (...why not purple?) - but what I loved was what she was wearing, which I told her were "the colors of Howard Johnson's." Being French, she didn't know what Howard Johnson's was, so I pulled up some vintage pictures to show her on my phone. 🌈🌈🌈 #colorful

Extra Thick and Fluffy Japanese Style Pancakes | Chopstick Chronicles

I never heard of Japanese-style pancakes. These things are huge! (But I could imagine the dessert possibilities, served with baked apricots or blueberry compote...)

Yafo Houmous Cafe

On my list of restaurants to try in Paris, I finally made it to Yafo for hummus. I found a friendly café with fresh vegetable salads, creamy-smooth hummus, and an outstanding poppy seed gâteau for dessert. (Fortified with chocolate-Greek yogurt ganache!) It was a charming place for lunch that's vegetable-friendly. Check out the story I just posted on my blog =>

Why is vanilla so expensive?

If you've bought (or tried to buy) real vanilla lately, you've probably gotten sticker-shock. Here's why it's gone up in price so much...

Love this fresh pasta (and beautiful shot of it) that Bebe made from the recipe in My Paris Kitchen!

Bientôt un nouveau Vélib’ entièrement modernisé!

A look at the new bikes for Paris. They say they are lighter, but more solid. And...30% of the bikes will have electric "assistance" - helpful if you live in the 20th, or up on Montmartre :)

I Hate New Ice Cream

Fresh Corn Soup - David Lebovitz

I'm hitting the multicultural markets in Paris this week in search of corn on the cob. (I got some nice chiles at the Indian market a few days ago.) With both of those ingredients in tow, I'm planning on making this corn soup. The gentle heat of this dish cools things down (we're having another heat wave), and the abundance of corn is a celebration of summer. Ok...my quest for corn begins today! Check out the recipe=>

Got zucchini? Here's a beautiful (and delicious looking) way to use 'em up...

Paris for $400? What Money Buys on the New Low-Cost Airlines

In my experience, when you add in all the extras (seat assignment, luggage fees, etc.) they're not much better deals than the legacy carriers.

S'mores Ice Cream Pie with Salted Butter Chocolate Sauce

I've been sitting on this S'mores Ice Cream Pie (thankfully, not literally...) for a few days now until I could write it all up, and here it is! Buttery Graham cracker crumbs make the shell, toasted marshmallows go on top, and inside is a cool, creamy layer of your favorite ice cream. To finish it up, I drizzled slices with Salted Butter Chocolate Sauce. Yes...really. It's a great summer dessert that can be made in advance for do-ahead folks. Check out the recipe, just posted on my blog. Click to read=>

Thrilled that Kitchen Arts & Letters, the great culinary bookstore in NYC, liked my upcoming book so much! (Due out in Nov - available for pre-order now.)

Basil Vinaigrette recipe

It's basil season and I made this dressing for the first time this season, and realized why it's one of my favorites. (fyi: Everyone asked for the recipe, so I'm not the only one...) It's great served with vegetables, fresh tomatoes, hard boiled eggs, or anywhere you want a major blast of basil flavor. It's the sauce of summer! Check out the super-easy Basil Vinaigrette recipe here=>http://www.davidlebovitz.com/basil-vinaigrette/

Fresh Ginger Lemonade

Need something to cool ya down this summer? I do, and this zingy lemonade fit the bill. (I polished off a whole pitcher, by myself.) This tart, tangy lemonade with the zip of fresh ginger is perfect on a hot day, served over plenty of ice. Check out the recipe here=>
