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

Eat Boutique’s 5 Favorite Must-Visit Paris Markets

There is great food in Paris. Scratch that, there is phenomenal food in Paris. It is, however, sometimes pricey (though not always – stay tuned for our Gourmet Cheap Eats Guide later in the month). One of the best ways to eat well and enjoy the beauty of Paris in the spring and summer is

When I think of Paris, everything sweet comes to mind. And this new boutique totally dedicated to sweet preserves is now at the top of my list for my next trip. Thanks to Lindsey for encouraging us to get to know La Chambre Aux Confitures, and Amy for all the tasting over there. ~Maggie When

A Taste of History (and Chocolate) in Boston

A Taste of History (and Chocolate) in Boston

I’ve lived in Boston for more than 10 years, and I hate to admit that I’ve taken its incredible history for granted. I recently paid a visit to the Old North Church Campus in the North End, and discovered a treasure trove of historical sites and information. In just one block, you can smell and taste a piece of chocolate

In Maggie’s Kitchen:

Hello friends, I just returned from a weekend away and, naturally, I have a few things to share because… it’s Monday! Spice It Up: I fell in love, again, with Maine and most certainly in love, again, with fra diavolo sauce. I don’t know why it’s evaded my cooking repertoire this long but, oh yes,

Travel Bite: Berkshires’ Mezze Bistro + Farm Egg on Peas, Favas, and Scapes

In the last few days, I’ve shared some of my favorite makers and a killer coffeehouse in western Massachusetts’ the Berkshires. Now I’d like to tell you about a lovely spot for a one-of-a-kind dinner, as well as a recipe for you to try at home. It’s no secret that I love to share food. You see,

You’ve already read about a few of my favorite stops in the Berkshires, but I’m back to share a coffee shop after my own heart, as well as an amazing recipe for affogato, an Italian dessert that “drowns” ice cream in espresso. My love letter to coffee usually begins the same way: “I never felt

Travel Bite: A Food-Lover’s Tour of The Berkshires

You never know what you might find if you just keep driving. This was one of my mother’s favorite lessons, which always resulted in long hours spent exploring back roads in our beastly tan minivan. Every time she felt a bit restless, we set out on a great adventure in search of the perfect steak,

In our continuing recap from Sean’s trip to Andalucía, we begged him for tapas recipes. These are three simple tapas dishes you can create right now, with face turned toward a bit of sun and blushing from a glass or two of something strong. -Maggie Traditionally, tapas would have been no more than a slice of

When in Spain, Eat…

Folks, do you this little favor right now. Stop what you’re doing and spend five minutes reading about Sean’s visit to Andalucía. In five minutes, you’ll be transported to a sort of calm place somewhere only a very good book will take you. In five minutes, you’ll retreat into Sean’s tiny dispatch from the land of

Apple Cider Steamed Mussels

Apple Cider Steamed Mussels

When I think of the northeast, I think of apples. Of nippy fall days, and a plethora of laden apple trees. Naturally, apple cider follows, and naturally, some scrumptious eats can be made with such riches. But seafood? The answer is yes. Sean shows us why! – Amy Stare at a mussel shell for long

Seven Ways to Eat England

Seven Ways to Eat England

The women in my family share many qualities; one of the least embarrassing to admit is a love for all things British. Our ladies-only get-togethers include our version of “high tea,” complete with scones, finger sandwiches and pastries. We pass around both fiction and non-fiction works by British authors, and can’t get enough of the

I still haven’t visited Ireland. What’s wrong with me?! My husband became a full-fledged Irish citizen in 2013 and, drats, life has just gotten in our way. Thank goodness for Elizabeth McNally of Wee Kitchen. For St. Patrick’s Day, we’re featuring a real Irish recipe, courtesy of our favorite Irish traveler. Elizabeth, the lucky lady,

Rachel volunteered at one of our very first Eat Boutique Holiday Markets, and has returned to every single event since. That’s five big markets, people, so she’s worked herself into my life such that my Mom now asks, “How’s Rachel?” every single month. Eat Boutique adores you, Rachel, and I’m even more delighted to congratulate
