  • Balsamic Glazed Roast Pork 3 days ago It’s been a goofy month.

  • Baked Rice Pudding (Riz au lait) with plum compote 2 weeks ago One great thing about France is you can drive around, stop in any number of small towns, from the Jura to Normandy, and check out regional specialties.

David's a great cook and he's been blogging and living in Paris a long time. Experience shows and this is one of the most informative and well written blogs around. It's always fun when he needs to let off some steam too :-)
