thoumieux par sylvestre

We’ve been here several times now and love the neighbourhood. We’ve dined at the brasserie a few times as well as the 2 Michelin starred Thoumieux restaurant upstairs. It’s where they serve breakfast every morning too. As for the food, it’s definitely on our go to. Brasserie for simple quick fare and the Michelin restaurant […]

Unearthing photos from two Autumns ago, we dined at ** Michelin Thierry Drapeau restaurant in Saint-Sulpice-le-Verdon, a region of France famous for their medieval theatre shows. Sadly, time was short and the objective like all quick trips to France was to indulge in gastronomy. Table side decor – seasonal vegetables The gorgeous hotel and restaurant chef […]

Colombey-les-Deux-Eglises is where General Charles de Gaulle is buried and on our roadtrip we stopped by to visit friends two summers ago. Chef Jean-Baptise’s one Michelin starred restaurant was closed that day, so we dined at his dad’s brasserie La Table du General instead (incidentally also on the top 10 restaurants list in the area […]

Since the closure of their Michelin restaurant of Jardin des Sens, with plans to open another fine dining restaurant. Terminal 1 is the […]

Arts et Métiers museum I remember arriving in Paris for the first time in the summer of 2001 with wide eyed wonder. In the past 16 years, […]

Apart from the gastronomic pilgrimage on our agenda to Restaurant Paul Bocuse, the textile museum was on my to-do list. Since I took up sewing classes this year. The Textile Museum was on the verge of closing down this year as funds were pulled out, I didn’t follow up on the news but it was […]

Picked this book up out of curiosity thinking it’d be in the genre of chick lit, but French Chic was one snooze pill and I have to confess I didn’t finish it. Well, I am married to a French man and have been to France dozens of times, through the villages, French Riveria where women carry […]

akrama restaurant france paris

We had a wonderful dinner here last summer when they still had ** Michelin stars, pity about losing one in this year’s guide. Everything from the service to the food was impeccable and worthy of their two stars when we dined there. The restaurant is intimate and cosy with a straightforward menu and every dish […]

paris les deserteurs

Here’s a pretty overdue post from last Summer. Run by the former team at Sergeant Recruiter in the 4eme of Paris, which was one of my husband’s favourite spot for something simple and good.
