For those trying to access my blog, due to a server switch and move to https, it's not accessible via Safari for the time being (which is also the browser most iPhones and iPads use). It should be resolved shortly. In the meantime, access my blog using Chrome, Firefox, or another browser. Thanks for your patience!

Journées européennes du patrimoine

This weekend is European Heritage Days, which means nearly 17,000 monuments in France, that aren't usually open to the public, will be...and admission is free! (Note that lines to get into the Elysées Presidential Palace in Paris are long.)

Yeasted Plum Tart - David Lebovitz

If you're fortunate to still have plums available, this plum tart is a seasonal favorite. Tangy plums in a yeasted crust with a crunchy streusel topping. The dough is easy and not fussy at all; you simply press the dough into the pan and let it bake around the plums, capturing the juices and making it easy to slice...and eat!

What's in That $5 Bottle of Trader Joe's or Target Wine?

Aside from using the word "shock," an interesting read about how these wines are made

I don't usually serve this many cheeses at once, but visiting friends from the US need to get their fill while they're here...right? 🇫🇷 #france #fromage #cheese #gavage

I've often asked about the best bakeries and pastry shops in Paris. So I've compiled a list of some of my very favorites in the city, some well-known and others more off-the-beaten path, on an all-new page on my blog. I'll be updating it with new discoveries as I find them! Check it out=>

Baked Rice Pudding with Plum Compote

I love rice pudding, or riz au lait, as the French call it. Rich and creamy, this oven-baked version is made with milk yet the rice gives is a luxurious texture. Paired with plums, it's one of my favorite desserts. Check out the recipe I just posted on my site, along with some Blog Notes about upcoming events, site changes...and more! Click here to read=>

Grève des pilotes d’Air France du 9 au 12 septembre 2017

In conversation with Deb Perelman of Smitten Kitchen

I'll be in conversation with Deb Perelman of smitten kitchen for this special event in New York City as we talk about cooking and baking our way through life...and more!

Maison Landemaine: French bakery in Paris

I'm often asked "Who makes the best baguette in Paris?" Hard to say who is "the best," but the baguette de campagne made with natural starter, at Maison Landemaine is definitely one of my favorites, for sure. Check out the story of the bakery that I just posted on my site, with lots of pastry pictures :) and, of course, bread! Click to read=>
