  • 02/19/08--10:32: Le Versance
  • One of my favorite new restaurant finds is Le Versance in Paris.  Chef/Owner Samuel Cavignis is friendly and creative and has created an atmosphere that is both welcoming and elegant.  When you first enter the restaurant, you are seated in a champagne bar that has nice chairs and coffee-style tables.  From there, you order your champagne and also [...]

  • My friend Agnes recently took me to Savor in the Noe Valley area of San Francisco for breakfast. It was delightful.  First of all, the staff was so warm and friendly.  I felt as if I was visiting old friends.  The menu was excellent, too – filled with breakfast goodies such as crepes and a variety [...]

  • My friend Agnes and I met for breakfast at Zazie in the Cole Valley neighborhood of San Francsico.  I really like the bohemian-style atmosphere of the place.  The staff was very friendly, too.

  • 03/02/08--10:20: Le Jardin du Quai
  • I was very fortunate on my last trip to Provence to discover Le Jardin du Quai in the lovely village of Isle-sur-la-Sorge.  The restaurant itself is in an old restored mansion across from the train station.  Even though it was the end of January when I was there, the weather was gorgeous and we sat outside in [...]

  • 03/02/08--10:42: Patisserie Jouvaud
  • This patisserie in the town of Carpentras in Provence is a fantastic discovery.  On my last trip, I had the pleasure to meet Pierre Jouvaud who is actively involved in managing this third-generation business.  The patisserie itself is warm, colorful and inviting.  The windows are beautifully decorated and draw you in with their magnificent variety of [...]

    I just received my new shipment of wines from Cave de Verges des Papes in Chateauneuf du Pape.  I tasted all of these wines when I was at my friend’s cave back in February.  They are superb and I cannot wait to serve them to my friends and family.  Here is a brief description: 2005 Vielle Julienne [...]

  • 03/02/08--13:25: Le Rove
  • This small, round, white goat’s milk cheese is named after the Rove breed of goats, believed to be one of the oldest breeds of goats in France.  It is sold when it is only 2-3 days old.  It is prized because the Rove goats produce a much smaller amount of milk than do other breeds.  [...]

  • Rue Cler is perhaps my favorite Market Street in Paris.  It has a food market everyday and the street has wonderful cheese shops, charcuteries, butcher shops, olive oil shops, restaurants, bars, gourmet food shops and patisseries.  It is in a wonderful location in the 7th Arrondissement near the Eiffel Tower.  Rue Cler (between Rue de Grenelle and [...]

  • If you love fine upscale food that is exquisitely packaged, you won’t want to miss Fauchon.  They have wonderful preserves and jams, mustards, teas, coffees, chocolates and wines.  They ship worldwide, too.  If you really enjoy thick, rich hot chocolate, theirs is not to be missed!  They have a tea salon/cafe that serves the hot chocolate along with breakfast items [...]
