Who doesn’t love taking obnoxious photos of their food? I can’t help it. Especially when you go to a nice restaurant and they place the food on the plate so artistically.
I also have a new found love for cooking. I told you before I would love to include food recipes and cooking on the blog but I am way too excited to eat food. I don’t have the patience to set the lighting and take million photos when all I want to do is enjoy.
As the theme has been Paris, and Paris is the culinary capitol of the world… here is your taste of Paris.
Eat like a Local
Whether I travel to Asia or Europe I try to open my mind to how locals eat and follow accordingly. Avoiding the typical fast-food franchises. However when we landed in Paris it was a cold rainy day and we were looking for somewhere to duck inside for warmth and there it was… Chipotle!
So yes, the first Parisian meal was Chipotle. Oh well, we don’t have Chipotle in Switzerland so I stuffed my face with glee.
I made up for it though with tons of seafood, fish and escargot.
I am not a huge meat eater but every now and then I will enjoy a steak. Well, I was told a couple times that the chef refuses to cook anything past medium done… so I tried one medium steak that was practically rare so unless you are about that life I’d advise to stay away from the red meat. I got a bit sick that night.
Drink and Eat More
Enjoy a nice glass of wine and eat forever. Every good meal last hours.
I even managed to eat a salad or two.
Baba Au Rhum is a small little cake that is extremely sweet and you pour liquor over.
Do you like trying new food or prefer to stick to what you know?
