One of my favorite parts of an evening stroll in Paris was going to Amorino Gelato. I have since discovered that they have opened in the Chelsea area and am waiting for the first warm day to get in line. Although this is a chain, the gelato is a work of art. One warning about traveling to Paris….. hold on to your handbag. While I was face down in my crepe and my husband was devouring his salad nicoise, someone was cutting my cross body bag strap. We lost our credit cards, money and passports. Imagine going to Paris and having to then stick to a food budget? C’est la vie.
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.
