autumn roast pork, potimarron, chestnuts, onion

When I first moved to France, I was convinced that I would glide effortlessly into a group of French people, and these people would be my French friends. Co-expats, you may now stop laughing at my naïveté. Those who would move to France……

Pork Roast with Cherry-Beer Sauce

I think I’m getting old. And yes, I’m fully aware of the irony of that statement. But it doesn’t make it feel less true. I feel like I’m getting older, like there’s less “spring-back” in my way of seeing the world. It takes…

Pork Chops, Mushrooms, Roquefort Sauce, Broiled Figs

When last we spoke, dear reader, it was summer. I was posting about tarts topped with berries from Paziols and looking forward to going back to the States for a month. Well, summer is over now. I’m back in Paris, and it’s undeniably…

sanglier, gaulois, dol de bretagne

I’m afraid that I may not have been entirely frank with you, friends. You see, as I reread past posts about my life here in France, you get all of the good stories. The funny encounters. The moments that have people writing me,…

pork roast, cornbread, cucumber salad

Sunday lunchtime is a serious affair in France. Around noon, the stairwell in my seven-story building starts to smell like garlic, onions, roasting chicken skin. The line from the bakery goes out the door and along the glass wall as people pick up…

Mustard Pork Roast with Apples

It’s difficult to explain to people who don’t live in Paris how easy it is to forget that I’m here. I’m not saying this to rub it in your faces, honestly. Sometimes I find myself sitting in front of movies about Paris, and…

My Grown-Up House

Several weeks ago, I promised you pictures of my new house, and then I promptly disappeared. I’m sorry. I could blame school starting up again and days that start at 7am and finish at 9 or 10 at night, or I could say…

Pork Stew

SCENE A Paris apartment. It is Sunday, which, as all good Parisians know, is the perfect day to mope around in your pajamas, drink lots of coffee, do all your laundry and clean all the surfaces in your apartment with Windex, because you…

Tomato Paella

After several years of doing fairly ridiculous things whilst traveling, I’ve gotten to the point where, when I suggest spending the night in an airport/train station/bus stop to make a cheap layover even cheaper, my friends just roll my eyes and don’t even…
