French girl living in Park Slope, Brooklyn.
I moved to the US a couple of years ago and work in events planning in the non-profit sector. With time on my side – for once – I decided to indulge in one of my most demanding obsessions, food. In every aspect. I have to say that being laid off (hence the free time) and quitting smoking (YAY!) altogether didn’t help in curbing my obsession.
My fondest memories all include food in some ways: my mother’s boeuf carottes every Saturday after school; shopping with my father on Saturday to get his cote de porc (pork chops) and favorite eclair au chocolat; my hometown’s Saint-Nectaire you can ONLY find in Auvergne; first time I went to a three-Michelin-Star Restaurant (Ledoyen); 2nd time I went to a three-Michelin-Star Michelin restaurant (Lucas Carton); the delicious restaurant-which-shall-not-be-named we went to for my secret wedding; merveilleux Cordeillan-Bages & Thierry Marx; first time I cooked diner for my family at Christmas et j’en passe.
Oh – and how could I forget Grant Achatz’s Alinea ?
