Hungry? You Need a Raclette. Posted by on Oct 8, 2017

As I write this, my body is slowly recovering from the abuse I just put it through this evening. Don’t worry – I didn’t run a marathon or do anything crazy like that, but I did eat way more than I should have in the form of a traditional and delicious Swiss meal that’s perfect…

Août en Bretagne Posted by on Apr 5, 2016

How to Make French Crepes Posted by on May 21, 2010

Ce soir, j’ai fait des crêpes! (Tonight, I made crêpes !) C’était délicieux. J’aimerais vous donnez une recette (I’d like to give you a recipe) but it’s not the precise measurements that matter.  L’esprit de crêpe (that is a made-up expression) is more important than the crepes themselves! (There’s still a recipe here, quand même.)…
