I am blogging!

I am blogging!

I'm old enough to remember when answering machines were new technology. I wasn't the first to get one, but I eventually gave in. Then mobile phones came along. This time I resisted a little harder, but again the lure was too strong. So it is with the blog. I told myself I was too busy, that I might have nothing interesting to say, that without an editor I might inadvertently offend someone with my observations. But then the blogging bug hit and with a few reckless clicks of the mouse I had set up my account. Now it's time to take responsibility for my actions. In my blog I'll be writing about the people I meet in Paris and Provence, and sometimes in Italy, England or Finland, who share my love of food. It's their passion that inspires me to drag myself out of bed at 7am on a Saturday to snap up the best produce at the Cours Saleya market in Nice or to zig-zag across Paris on the Métro during rush hour seeking out the finest pâtisseries, chocolates or charcuterie. Something I love about the French is the way they share this passion so generously: they are always happy to talk about what they do and, if they like you, they will even reveal their secrets. I'd like to do the same with you.

We are looking for English-speaking French people in Paris who enjoy dining out to take part in our new show fronted by Michel Roux Junior. He is bringing 7 trainees over from London to see how they cope with the formal dining service at 2 Michelin starred Lasserre (Ave Franklin Roosevelt) on Tues 15 June at 13:00. Diners must be prepared to pay a very reasonable 40 Euros per head for a set 3 course lunch (excl drinks) and to give us their opinions on the very traditional service. If interested please e-mail Mel at mel.walden@ricochet.co.uk

A memorable girls' weekend

"I wanted to drop you a note to say that we thoroughly enjoyed our girl's weekend in Paris and your itinerary was just perfect. We loved the almond croissants and pains aux raisins at Le Moulin de la Vierge, in fact, we went back again Sunday morning.  You were so right about the coffee at Au Roi du Cafe, I have had my share of mediocre coffee in Paris, but my espresso on Saturday morning was one of the best I've ever had; and my friends, the tea drinkers, were pleased to see that they also had good tea.  The woman at Beau et Bon asked how we had heard about her and was pleased to read your write up.  The market was fantastic, we made too many purchases to list and ended up having to go back to the hotel to lighten our load before picking up the trail again.
 
All in all it was a truly perfect way to spend a day in Paris and I can't wait to go back to hit the places we missed this time."
