Le Charlot

Its full name is Le Charlot “roi des coquillages“.  The Art Deco decor serves to highlight the restaurants speciality: shellfish.  Everywhere you look, everywhere your gaze stops there is a shell, a coquille, a little reminder that you are in a seafood restaurant. And it was by sheer luck that D and I stopped at […]

FFF – Champagne

Champagne is one of my favourite things to drink.  I would drink champagne with breakfast if it was reasonable to do so.  So, I skip champagne for breakfast.  I do enjoy it for apéro all the way through to dessert. Yes folks, champagne is that versatile and while most North Americans enjoy champagne — or sparkling […]

FFF – Deal-icious at Brasserie L’Européen

By now you all know that I if I loved food more I would be a food-aholic.  Some may call it a sickness but I call it love.  It’s the reason I enjoy cooking.  I also use food to remember places and specific events.  In fact, at dinner on Tuesday night D and I were […]

FFF – Dinner at Le Petit Champerret

I fell of the blog wagon while Mom was visiting and it took me some time to get back into my rhythm.  In fact, I was still feeling a little behind until yesterday when I reviewed some of the photos from our visit to Paris with Mom.  There was one thing on my list of things to share […]

FFF – Wedding Reception

It’s been a while since I did a post just about food.  So, I think it’s fitting that this Food Frenzy Friday is about what we selected for our wedding/reception dinner. Our wedding ceremony and reception were held in the same place:  Didier Restaurant.  D and I first visited the restaurant on 3 October 2009 […]

FFF – Dining in Strasbourg

Last week, D and I stopped in Strasbourg as part of our France-Germany tour.  Strasbourg is a city I’m just getting to know but what I’ve seen so far I truly enjoy.  This includes our most recent dining experience.  Now I know we’re moving to Nice — eventually I will be able to ‘talk’ at […]

FFF – Rosé wine

I came.  I saw.  I drank rosé wine.     Ah, rosé — so girly, so youthful.  When I was younger I recall that most of my girlfriends were all agog for White Zinfandel.  It was the wine and the boyfriends would woo their girlfriends with this pale pink, sweet wine from California.  I wasn’t a big fan […]

FFF – Coffee

Coffee.  Joe.  Java.  Liquid Energy. Here in France we simply call it café. Now, before you get ahead of yourself and order yourself a cup of coffee, you first need to know what you’re ordering.  You seriously didn’t think you were going to jump off that transatlantic flight, jet-lagged and weary, and walk into the nearest […]

FFF – Digestifs

D and I have been together for almost three years.  In that time, I’ve eaten things I’ve never tried before (escargot) and things I’ve never thought I would ever eat (rabbit – so delish!).  It goes without saying that my overall consumption of cheese, bread, and wine has increased in the 3 years.  It is […]

FFF – Food Frenzy Fridays

When I decided to write my own blog I knew that I would dedicate at least one day a week to talk about my favourite topic:  food!  Little did I know that my first posting on the topic would be a negative one.  Well, it’s a negative followed by a positive.  (I feel the need to […]
