    yum! nice to see you making good use of the things you learnt at le cordon bleu. I was there too for 2 weeks during December last year (maybe we passed in the hallways hehe) I did the foie gras and Provençal classes amongst others. I am so jealous that you have done the basic and intermediate intensives. I am saving up to do the three courses too. Don’t give up your dream to do the last level….maybe we will be there at the same time :-)

    You lucky, lucky thing…being able to pop back to Paris again!

    I haven’t heard of this restaurant but will definitely keep it on my Paris list when I do eventually make it back.

    Perhaps a little list of your favourite Paris eateries? Merci!
