Breizh Cafe: Experience Brittany Crepes in Paris

by Amy Feiereisel
Experience Crepes at Breizh Cafe

No trip to Paris feels complete to me without a stop at Breizh Cafe, an authentic Bretagne-style creperie in the Marais. I made sure to point Amy toward it’s glowing windows and overflowing plates, and a little something sparkling, naturally.

Socca – The Chickpea Flour Crepes You Have to Try

My first taste of Socca was in Nice, where the golden triangles are sold at markets and out of stalls on nearly every corner – it’s practically the city’s official snack! A friend and I ate it up within seconds, marveling over the texture and taste, and wondering how to make it at home. Thanks

I might have a bit of an obsession with French food (and cafes, and bistros, and markets…). Maybe. That’s why Maggie wanted to spend a little time in Paris this month (via the blog, of course)! We’ve been talking about must-visit eateries in the city, the best outdoor food markets, and a jam shop that

In Maggie’s Kitchen: Let’s Spend Springtime in Paris

I’m in Europe right now, soaking in the rain and the fog and all that greenery from every Irish vista. You were all completely right – it’s gorgeous and everything I ever imagined. It’s actually providing the perfect pause from my hectic food gift life, the cookbook release planning, and a few new projects that

Bon Appetit: Mimi Thorisson on her Kitchen in France & her Aunt’s Fava Bean Soup

Warning: This article may inspire you to move to a farmhouse in France. Mimi Thorisson has that power. I started reading her blog, Manger, years ago and I’m still plotting my escape overseas. Mimi’s life on her stunning farmhouse in France, complete with adorable children and cuter-than-cute dogs, would be enough reason to make us jump ship, but then

I made a promise to myself when I embarked on writing a cookbook. The promise was simple: I promise to do whatever I need to make sure I appreciate and even enjoy this cookbook writing process.  And no matter how busy I get, I am making sure to do just that. In March, I had the

Eat Boutique Sale on Small Business Saturday

Six years ago, I almost started a blog called Eat Small, instead of Eat Boutique. Did you know that?! I think about it every year around this time. With Small Business Saturday just a couple weeks away, I’m reminded of why I started this boutique business to highlight boutique makers. Boutique is all about small.

Tiffany and I missed each other in Paris. She was there and I was back here and we just never got a chance to meet which is tragic, oui? But I am in love with her original sandwich business called Tifamade, all delivered on a pink bike across the streets of Paris, and she’s eager

It’s stormy outside right now, so I want soup. I threw out a very special challenge to Denise for a dish close to my heart. She triumphed! – Maggie When Maggie talks Paris, I’m right there with her. And when she mentioned crafting a Pot au Feu recipe, my mind jumped on a plane straight

Paris reminds me of croissants, afternoon tea and, always, without fail, Jacques Genin. I was delighted to hear Josephine got a private tour with the confectionary master. Here is her intimate account of her afternoon with Jacques Genin in Paris. Indeed, I was very jealous! – Maggie When I discussed my impending trip to Paris

Before we lose the last rays of truly hot sun… Before the sitting under a shady tree feels cool instead of refreshing… Before your friends disappear into Fall busy life and can’t join you for a 2pm cocktail hour in the garden… And certainly before the Eat Boutique Fall Market… Make a pitcher of this
