In a few days, I will be transferring my activities to Paris and London. Both cities are sure to be so expensive that I intend to pan for little-noticed and inexpensive nuggets of gastronomic gold in both places. After spending five days in Paris, I’ll catch the Eurostar to London, where Ann and I will carry out the cooking experiments we’ve been planning. Her daughter, Ava (seen here), will play the role of mascot and guinea pig. Christmas dinner will involve roasted goose, plum pudding, and other traditional fare. As usual, I’ll accompany Ann to her favorite stores and farmers’ markets.
In this way, I hope to avoid the typical food travel reportage. I’ll post here news of good stores, tidbits to eat on the run, great markets, and affordable eating.
