As we planned our 2012 trip to Paris, one thing i was curious about was whether or not we would fall in love with the food.
Ohhhhhh, naive Past Wrdnrd.
One of our favorite places was Le Potager du Marais, a vegetarian restaurant in the 3me arrondissement. We went there for dinner one of our 1st nights Paris, then we went back again once littlebutfierce joined us on our second weekend.
Our other favorite place, which, alas!, we were not able to return to, was this little cafe just across from the station Rambuteau — called, conveniently enough, Le Station Rambuteau. This is where we both fell head over heels for French cuisine. We enjoyed escargots — a 1st for both of us — and some boeuf bourgogne.
This past autumn, i was craving boeuf bourgogne so we decided to pick up Julia Child’s Mastering the Art of French Cooking and make some boeuf bourgogne for Christmas dinner. This was not a mistake. We’ve since made a couple of recipes out of it, and basically i just want to keep track of them which, of course, makes me turn again to my blog — my external hard drive for my personal memories.
