I snuck out…but I’m back!

Please forgive the lack of recent posts. I’ve been sort of busy. Here’s a bit of what I was doing:

Drinking Champagne at Café de Flore:

They always serve it nice and cold!

Dining on course after beautiful course at the exquisite French-Japanese restaurant, Sola:




Foie gras with miso glaze.


Fish One.

Fish Two!

Dessert One.

Dessert Two!

Lunching on lobster salad at Fish la Boissonnerie in Saint Germain:

Eating a magnificent meal then my favorite dessert of all time (tarte fine aux pommes) at Hôtel Costes:

Macarooning at Angelina:

Admiring flowers (and the cool “vase”) on rue de Buci:

Jolies fleurs.

Admiring the windows at Ladurée (then down the road at Hermes):

Closing down down Bofinger one night then Macéo the next:

The fabulous Macéo. It’s empty!

Breakfasting with friends:


And…resisting the temptation to splurge on this fabulous bag at Jamin Puech:

It was a quick trip but Paris was, as always, inspirational.

And look what was waiting for me (in addition to my lovely family),when I got back:

My first sweet peas of the season!

A bientôt!

My cherished Chipped Platter is part of the family. (I love my chipped plates, too!) On this blog, I'll be sharing my adventures of cooking for my family and friends, venturing out into restaurants and learning tips from people I meet. Come along!
