The breakfasts consisted of croissants, yogurt and fruit served with strong coffee and steamed milk.
They kept me going while I walked for many hours exploring the various arrondissments.
When I needed a rest I would stop at a wee sidewalk cafe for lunch...
I took a cooking class at La Cuisine and learned how to prepare duck.
I have not made it yet since coming home but it is on my "list of things to do!"
This cookbook is full of great recipes and there are stories and snippets that go along with each section.
I love his simple recipe for making omelets.
Beat 2 large eggs and add 1 teaspoon of cream or full fat milk.
Toss in some herbs, salt and pepper.
Lay a handful of Arugula or Mesclun greens on the plate.
Dress with a little vinaigrette.
Melt butter in an omelet pan on medium high heat until it foams and bubbles.
Pour egg mixture into the pan and cook until the edges are set.
Top with a little grated cheese.
Here is the basic recipe as seen on Page 133 of David's book.
You can see that I am a messy cook dripping bits and smudging the pages...
I think these little "splodges" left behind show which recipes are used most often.
Slip a large flipper underneath the omelet and flip carefully...
roll over on itself and out of the pan onto the plate.
Lunch is served.
Low in calories, filling and with every bite I recall the sights and sounds of the Parisian Cafes.
Taste and food can transport you back in time...
A beautiful Hellebore flower seen on my walk.
I managed to get out for a 5K walk yesterday between the windstorms...
right now as I write this the winds have whipped up again and the trees are straining and bending with the sheer force of the gusts.
I'll be back with some more photos from the walk but right now I have an appointment and I do not want to be late!
