Cookin' Time

I think I have openly declared my love for all food...Recently I got the chance to test out my french food skills! My mama is visiting Paris - so we decided to try a cooking class. If you ever pop over to Paris - check out cookn' with class, which I can't recommend enough.

The morning started off with Market visit where we were schooled in everything from stinky cheese to Israeli artichokes(yum). We got to pick a custom menu + continued to cook up a storm with our fantastic guide - chef Pino. Full belly, great day.

Thinking of Haiti...

Living in New Orleans before and after Hurricane Katrina was a slap of perspective. My stomach turns at the thought of all the hurt + devastation in Haiti right this moment. Sending good thoughts that direction.

New Shtuff!

Been working away + wanted to add some of the new work I completed last year and haven't had a chance to put on my portfolio site. Worked with my good friend Susan to re-vamp the logo for the well-known New Orleans lingerie institution - House of Lounge.

Pancake-less in Paris

Well the Sunday hunt for freshly cooked pancakes is serious work. For the late-risers the few precious locations that dish out this American delicacy are overtaken by long lines, which when combined with the freezing temperatures results in a breakfast white flag...

So we opted for falafel, yummy, but definitely not a pancake. I'm so sentimental for breakfast, it's my favorite meal of the day, the thought of skipping straight to lunch always upsets me just a bit. But today I took one for the team (aka my husband who loves lunch-time). This fight is not over though - I'm setting my alarm at an absurd hour next Sunday - I'll let you know how it works.

In the meantime if your looking for the best breakfast in Paris - here's my picks:

The Kitchen
fresh, delicious berry-filled pancakes
Breakfast in America good ol' steady breakfast
Le Loir dans La Theiere quintessential parisian brunch
Cafe Charlot yummy fixed brunch with lovely atmosphere

breakfast @ the kitchen
