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 [personal profile] 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.
