you don't have to go to paris

This recent Mark Bittman post referencing items such as bread, salami and butter made me chuckle, but you don't have to travel to Paris to experience such unadulterated joy. It seems most people see Paris as they do bacon, in an everything is better with bacon sort of way. I wonder if the recent press Swine Flu is receiving will change this beloved perception of bacon. I hope not.

Is everything better in Paris?

I'm not so sure.

this photograph of Chris makes me chuckle too

Yesterday evening I met Chris at a wine bar (here in San Francisco, at the Ferry Plaza). We each ordered a glass of wine, shared the salumi plate, and had a nice conversation. No butter, but I couldn't have asked for better company. Who needs Paris...


  1. You know, as much as I love anything and everything French, I feel it is all too often an annoying sales gimmick. There are so many artisans creating amazing food and drink in this country you could almost fancy yourself in . . . Paris.

    Great site Denise.

  2. Erin-
    I completely agree. Our country does have some amazing artisans. Lucky for us California is where many of them reside!
