For a blogette that seems to get the best out of Paris life. Read her lovely, very food-centered blog here.

It is a Friday in May and so far, I have had heavenly asparagus on a daily dose since Sunday. I’ve had it in multiple variations. The classic white one with Sauce Hollandaise, white vine-steamed, soup and as a salad with caramelized green asparagus which can be seen above. I liked all the variations and I am finding my love for the green kind but I do love the classic, which is why I will have to meet with my grandma this weekend to get my extra dose – mmmhhhhhh…

Favorite Culinary Season

It is here, it is here!!!! The first asparagus has arrived. Not only am I head over heels with this multifaceted vegetable and its fresh sweet taste but it is also the season to see my Granny every Sunday. It’s been a tradition for years and I can hardly wait for Sunday to come. We usually go for the white kind with a Hollandaise, ham and potatoes – nothing special but always perfection. But for my own self, I tried my first experiment with green asparagus.

Here is what I did:

I fried two hands full of green asparagus with one garlic clove for about two minutes, infused it with about two glasses of white vine afterwards, and had it on a low flame for the next ten minutes until the vine vanished. Mix it with red mache salad, tomatoes, roasted sesame seeds, spring onions and a simple olive oil and a balsamic vinegar dressing. Top the best salad for a fan of asparagus with parmesan if you like. MMMhhh…

It’s Just Not Fair

First of all, yes there is a lot of nail polish involved in this picture and I like the style but what I really want to say is this: I am starved for some great food. I just got back from my  daily lunch break with my friend and the cafeteria food just doesn’t do it anymore. I mean you eat a pile of something that wasn’t even fried but instead has been swung around in cheap grease. Do you see my dilemma? I get the full calories without enjoying some good taste in my mouth. My friend says they got tiny magicians in the kitchen making the air look like food, swing it in grease so we think it tastes like food and get us hungry after two hours again. My friends, I can only hope you have a great deli near you in your lunch break. At this point of food frustration I might even consider a burger place nearby – and you know how I hate burgers.
