Thank you for stopping by my blog. This is my first attempt at blogging so go easy on me.
About me…. I am an elementary school teacher in the New York City area that has a passion for the culinary arts. I’m the “go to” person for when you need a restaurant suggestion or the perfect ingredient to complete a recipe. Most of my weekends are spend browsing around small independent food shops or getting lost in the aisles of Fairway. I think the small shops are lost in a sea of bigger chains but I will search them out and give my opinions.
Last summer I traveled to Paris to enjoy the sights and foods of France. I thought the best thing about Paris was how all the Parisiennes chose their dinner menu based on what was fresh that day. In many of the neighborhoods there were small cheese stores, butcher shops and open air markets selling fresh produce and breads. People walked around with bread under their arms like people carry a Louis Vuitton bag in Manhattan. The French are serious about their food and so am I.
