Paris: Le Café de Flore (Saint Germain)

Azi am avut o întâlnire de lucru în buricul târgului, la una dintre cele mai șic cafenele din Paris, Café de Flore, cu o tânără doamnă corporatistă, căreia am să îi spun Mitzi din motive obiective - pentru că aproape așa o cheamă.

Paris: Fête des Vendanges de Montmartre

În Montmartre, scot capul de la metrou, ca o turelă, la stația Anvers. Iar plouă în orașul ăsta. Asta e, îmi zic și-mi desfac umbrela, apoi o luăm pieptiș pe Rue de Steinkerque, către Sacre Coeur.

Paris Bits: Montmartre in the Rain

Yeah, yeah, shabby, overrated Montmartre is one of my favorite places in Paris; even if it's packed with pickpockets, although you have to pay to use the restroom of the cafe where you spent your last dime on 2 milliliters of coffee or your wage per hour for a small bottle of beer, I can't help loving it.

What Did Katie Eat?

I very often wonder what Katie ate and how many wonderful pictures she took meanwhile. Because if there is a photographer that makes me crave all sorts of things I wouldn't normally crave (such as sweets for example), then that photographer is the one and only Katie Quinn Davies, mother of What Katie Ate blog and cookbook - Recipes and Other Bits and Bobs.

Food Mood: Couscous, Berber Deli

There is nothing simpler than this food. Or tastier. Or versatile. Buy a pack of couscous - fine or medium grain, it doesn't really matter. Put 250 g in a large bowl.

Paris Bits: Pont des Arts

It seems I've been growing fond of bridges lately. Especially pedestrian ones. After Charles Bridge in Prague, now it's Pont des Arts in Paris, crossing the Seine River and linking Institut de France and Palais du Louvre square.

Prague in 6 Hours (Part 2) - Charles Bridge on Vltava

8:30 a.m. -  10:00 a.m. - After we saw the Opera House in Part 1, we headed for the banks of Vltava River. The longest river in the Czech Republic crosses the capital from north to south, offering stunning views to those who take a stroll along its banks.

Paris Bits: Les Galeries Lafayette on A Rainy Day

If you happen in the 8th or 9th arrondissement in Paris on a rainy day, Les Galeries Lafayette are the best place to go to. Even if you're overwhelmed by the prices or you're not a fashion enthusiast, there's still something for you to do...

Food Mood: Crepes with Cheese and Herbs

To me crepes are the most versatile kind of food. They are easy to make, easy to fill, easy to please your guests with. Or your husband. When you don't feel like having meat or something sweet, and all you have in the fridge is cheese and vegetables, you can try your hand at this dish.

Montreuil - Marché Croix de Chavaux

Yeahhh! One of my favorite places in Paris. The market in Montreuil: Croix de Chavaux. One of the most colorful, positive, cheap, crazy, awesome places ever. Enjoy! (or Yalla!)
