Loving Paris in the Spring might feel cliche, but who cares! Lo and I are having a French inspired date night. It's the perfect inspiration for staying-in and cooking together as a couple. Won't you join us? We dove into our music collection thinking Spring and France and pulled out some great music for you to hear. We're eating some rustic French onion soup and finishing it off with some beef tartare and French beer. Check out the music. Check out the recipes. Pay some homage to those French who definitly do food and mood right. Allez bon appétit.
The music: Trying out a new feature. We collect lots of music at our home. We'll try and bring you some great music on occasion and hopefully most of it is new to you. We would love some feedback here.
I love how simple and rustic this soup is. The list of ingredients is small and so is the price point. Onion, wine, stock, thyme, sherry, gruyere and day old crusty baguette.
While bartending at Les Halles in lower Manhattan I had two favorite dishes, but the one that makes me feel most nostalgiac is beef tartare. I love it.
Again a callback to Les Halles.. a little post (or during) shift beer. You gotta have a Kronenburg. With a little beef tartare on a crusty baguette? A nice cold lager type of beer? YES please.
