Claus: The Art Of Breakfast in Paris

by Amy Feiereisel
Claus: The Art Of Breakfast in Paris

Breakfast in Paris? Even ten years ago, the idea was practically a joke. The French don’t consider breakfast a meal; lunch and dinner are meals. Breakfast is a steaming bowl of coffee and perhaps a pastry or slice of bread smeared with butter and jam. Children might enjoy a piece of fruit or a yogurt,

Eating Out (Well) in Paris: Six Restaurant Gems for the Frugal Foodie

Good food in Paris is not a tall order. But good food for less than 15 euros? That can be much harder to find, and can make staying in Paris on a budget nearly impossible. This is one reason I love French food markets so much. You can eat well for a fraction of the

What I Miss Most About Paris: the Cafe Gourmande

by Maggie Battista
Cafe Gourmande

It’s no surprise that I generally always miss Paris. I think everyone who appreciates Paris misses Paris, right? Do you? I miss the scent of the grey streets in the early morning after a night of hard rain. I crave the afternoon aromas of freshly baked bread and the imagery of sharply-dressed business men lopping

Learn to Cook in France: The Cook’s Atelier

I’ve known about The Cook’s Atelier for a long time; their style is just that memorable. Mother and daughter duo Marjorie and Kendall run this cooking school in the tiny (and lovely) city of Beaune, France where they’ve most recently also opened an online shop filled with new and vintage French-inspired finds. These two make

Breizh Cafe: Experience Brittany Crepes in Paris

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. Here’s why it should be on your to-do list, too. ~Maggie Maggie’s first recommendation for

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 Guide to 5 Favorite 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

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

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,

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
