La Tuile a Loup

Sharing these thoughts from Eric, the owner of La Tuile a Loup, a shop in Paris the features handmade French pottery, that mentions some of the challenges and issues that will play a role in today's election in France. This election isn't just important for France, it could have a profound effect on Europe and the rest of the world.

Like in the U.S., there is a disconnect between rural voters and those that live in cities, and the different socio-economic groups that live in them. Results will be announced after the polls close tonight at 8pm in France, then the two candidates who got the most votes will move on to the final election, May 7th.

Enough With the Egg White Omelets Already

Obviously they never wrote an ice cream book - I had a gazillion egg whites to use up, and many found their way into omelets & frittatas (although I always added a whole egg or two, to the mix...)

Lamb Kofta Recipe

A trip to San Francisco isn't complete without a stop at Tartine Bakery. These skewers are from their new book, Tartine At Home, recipes anyone can make, even if you're not in California. They're great grilled with yogurt-tahini sauce. Check out the recipe on my site! =>

L'apéro des " A voté "

Some bars in Paris offering a free drink to those who vote in today's election.

Sharing a few scoop of Hazelnut and fig-vin santo gelati with Rolando Beramendi at Café Altro Paradiso


This is intriguing, made with goat milk - I never heard of a milk punch. Maybe fun to try...

Servers, stop handing the check to my husband. I can pay, too.

Also when restaurants give women menus with no prices on them...and give those only to the men : -/

The Jasmine Cocktail

Tough times call for tough cocktails, and while this one may not look like it fits that bill, it does. (Trust me.) The lovely pink color belies the power of this beguiling mix of gin and citrus, with a dose of bitter Americano. Make this your end-of-the-week refresher on Friday, if we make it through the week. On second thought, maybe better to start today...!

Marzipan Challah

I couldn't wait to share this recipe from baker Uri Scheft of Breads Bakery, and his new book, especially after a recent trip to Iceland where I enjoyed a number of Danish-style pastries. (For those of you celebrating Passover, you might want to bookmark/print the recipe for later...if you can wait.) It was even better than I expected and it was fun to make, too. Check out the story and recipe (which involved hitting up my local baker and café owner to borrow ingredients, because I made it on a Sunday in Paris - oops!) on my blog. Click to read =>
