Madison, Wisconsin book signing

Tuesday, September 2nd, 2014

Salut, friends! C’est la rentrée et je suis de retour! This week, I’m so excited to travel to Madison, Wisconsin for a book event at the University of Wisconsin’s Maison Française! The event is free and open to the public (and there will be wine and cheese!). If you’re in Madison, I hope you’ll join […]

My Paris walking tour with La Cuisine Paris

Thursday, June 12th, 2014

Three of my favorite things are Paris, walking in Paris, and food. And so, when Jane of La Cuisine Paris and I started planning my Paris popup tour, I couldn’t wait to hit the ground. And even though it rained on the day of my tour—comme une vache qui pisse (as they say so charmingly)—my stalwart fellow […]

I’m excited to announce that I’m leading a special Paris pop up tour next Tuesday, June 10, with the delightful cooking school, La Cuisine Paris! I’ll be hosting a gourmet afternoon visiting a few of Julia Child’s favorite haunts, as well as a selection of wonderful food shops. We’ll shop for some of France’s finest delicacies, […]

Tasting France through five dishes—EXTRAS

Saturday, May 24th, 2014

Last summer, I traveled around France with the sole purpose of eating. It was a memorable journey for many reasons (among them this and this), and I’m absolutely thrilled the resulting article is in this Sunday’s New York Times Travel section—my first cover! I hope you’ll read the story and leave me a comment with an answer to […]

An Evening at the American Library in Paris

Monday, February 10th, 2014

  I had so much fun last week at my book event at the American Library in Paris with Patricia Wells that I couldn’t resist sharing a few photos. As you can see, we shared a lot of laughs with a lovely crowd of Francophiles. I saw so many familiar faces in the audience that […]

Bits and pieces

Wednesday, December 4th, 2013

You guys, it’s DECEMBER already. What happened? Actually, I think I know what happened: time got swallowed up in the SDZ (sleep deprivation zone). But now the twins (pictured above) are three months old (!). And the human baby and I have settled into a routine rich with literary supplement (favorite subjects: apiary and the […]

Where to eat in Aveyron

Thursday, November 21st, 2013

Aveyron is known as la France profonde — deep France, in-the-sticks France — and, indeed, I’ve met many French people who have barely heard of it, let alone been there. Located about 350 miles south of Paris, the lack of high-speed TGV or direct train service means the region has remained relatively inaccessible. Aveyron is […]

Where to eat in Burgundy

Thursday, November 14th, 2013

The very word Burgundy makes me drool a little, evocative as it is of silky, fruity, ruby red vintages. But as I discovered on my visits here, the region is large — and the Côte d’Or wine country comprises only a very small portion of it. Cattle dominates the southern part of the territory, specifically […]

Where to eat in the Savoie and Haute-Savoie

Thursday, November 7th, 2013

At first, the idea of driving around narrow, twisty Alpine roads terrified me — especially in a Smart car (slave that I am to automatic vehicles) — but once I got there I found the highway surprisingly manageable — and the scenery utterly breathtaking. Out of all the places I visited in France, none was […]

Where to eat in Alsace

Thursday, October 31st, 2013

The far eastern border of France is home to Alsace, a region that combines two cultures — French and German — into one of its own. During my travels there, I kept hearing shopkeepers switch between French and the local dialect, Alsatian — which is linguistically close to Swiss German — snapping from one to the […]
