biodynamic in bourgogne
Putting together the first draft of my master's thesis has made my brain rather consistently scattered (i.e. the sequence of recent posts: blog curation , neobistro lunches , actual 'good' people ,  simple, seasonal menus ?). It makes sense though; I've com...

altruistique*
While catching up on the Daily Show recently, I saw an interview with Samuel J. Jackson promoting his latest blockbuster, Captain America . I've been thinking about good guys and bad guys ever since; mostly because there's no such thing. And yet, I also bel...

recueil de bêtises
"I'm so tired of good stories though. I just wish something of great tangible and lasting significance would happen, for once," I said, standing on the metro, tears in my eyes, many, many moons ago. That particular night, of course, was never mentioned here...

paris in bloom
As you've heard from myself (and possibly others), Paris has been enjoying the most beautiful spring thus far . It's almost as if there's been more sun and blue skies than all of last year put together; pollution aside , of course. The flowers are thrilled!...

one day in saint-jean-de-luz
Last night, at an apartment in Belleville , I watched Kung Fu Panda . Cute movie. "My friend, the panda will never fulfill his destiny, nor you yours, until you let go of the illusion of control," the old turtle told the tiny red panda . However silly the c...

le plat du jour
Though I do sometimes enjoy restaurant meals with friends --and love to photograph and write about them so as to relive the special occasion, I mostly cook for myself. Breakfast at home is simple: banana oatmeal; muesli with yogurt; yesterday's toasted bagu...

caillebotte impressions
I met Mia for lunch today. It was phenomenal-- mostly because she is , and because it's been a year and a half since our brunch at Sesame . Oddly enough, I only just recently complained about their less-than-stellar bagels (as I flexed my New Yorker muscles...

It's official! My parents are coming to Paris, for my graduation, in less than two months. Not even (April Fools') joking. I'm in awe of how soon that is. Exciting, too--it'll be my dad's first time in Europe! As such, I've been brainstorming ways to trick ...

that time I drove to spain
Please note: when I say "I", I mean "we", and Leslie did all the driving. We wanted  needed to  go to  fall in love with San Sebastián. You see, we were so, so close by in Biarritz . It's a popular vacation itinerary to seaside town-hop along the Basque Coa...
