Pariscope sort mercredi son dernier numéro, après 51 ans

Wow. After 51 years, the weekly Pariscope magazine stops publication this week. (It was an incredible to guide to everything that was happening in Paris each week, from movie times to restaurants of note.)

Cheese ball recipe

This is my first cheese ball. Being faces lots of bits and odds & ends of cheese is one of the problems with bringing home so much cheese home from the market. I've tackled fromage fort, but this all--American "boule de fromage" adapted from Vivian Howard is a great appetizer for a party or get-together. Check out the story and recipe on my blog! =>

Parisian Hot Chocolate recipe: Le chocolat chaud

The weather is getting brisk and I don't mind, especially because the cafés in Paris start pouring le chocolat chaud, thick, rich hot chocolate. Many think it's because the drink is made with cream, but it's made with milk - and gets its flavor from good, dark chocolate...

One of my new favorite places in Paris, Merguez & Pastrami won me over with its housemade pastrami and breads, along with dishes inspired by Europe, the Middle East and North African, in a truly Parisian place. Check out this casual dining spot in the 9th arrondissement!
