I first tried a version of this orzo salad with goat cheese seven years ago and it was seriously love at first bite. Immediately I asked my friend for her recipe and it’s been a favorite ever since. I’ve made a few tweaks over the years, which is why it now features goat cheese instead of feta. This is the perfect summer lunch or dinner and is a great recipe to make ahead!
Over the weekend I had the opportunity to check out Ruinart’s new second skin packaging at their La Maison 1729 pop up. Ruinart is holding a series of tastings, discussions, brunches, and personalization workshops at La Maison 1729 in advance of the official second skin launch on October 15th. In true Ruinart fashion, it was a perfect event.
With the arrival of cooler temperatures in Paris I have to admit I’ve been daydreaming a bit about fall and winter menu changes and some of my favorite dishes. I thought it would be the perfect time to share my top five classic French restaurants in Paris (it’s hard for me to limit my picks, I could easily make a list of 50). The restaurants within all hit the marks for excellent food, service, and atmosphere.
I wandered into Mon Square completely by (happy) accident after visiting the Musée de l’Orangerie. I’d wanted to try it out ever since I saw photos of it in November. It’s one of those places where you think it’s not possible for it to be that beautiful in real life. It exceeded all expectations.
Today is the official reopening of bars and restaurants all across France. It’s a day most people have been waiting three months for. It’s also a major step in getting back to normal, regular life (although I must admit, last week in Paris felt pretty close to normal).
