Pastry Cyril Lignac – Paul Bert, Paris

Pastry Cyril Lignac – Paul Bert, Paris

Continuing on in my patisserie quest across Paris, my next stop is Pastry Cyril Lignac in the 11th arrondissement. Believe it or not, it’s a patisserie from the likes of Cyril Lignac! Explains the name. For those of us outside the French culinary scene, Lignac […]

Les Glastag, Toulouse

Les Glastag, Toulouse

Hello 2018! It’s nice to meet you. Hope you’re full of wonderful adventures, good eating and splendid weather. Let me recount a day with all of these things, back in the city of Toulouse, in the country of France, with my friend Judy. Here’s a […]

L’Atelier de Joël Robuchon, Covent Garden, London

L’Atelier de Joël Robuchon, Covent Garden, London

It’s time to get a little starry-eyed. Michelin starry-eyed. I’ve done over half a year in London now, and it’s a good point to start checking off some Michelin-starred establishments. First on the list was L’Atelier de Joël Robuchon in Covent Garden. The location was […]

Sandyan Pâtisserie, Toulouse

Sandyan Pâtisserie, Toulouse

Sandyan is the kind of venue which I walk past, then determinedly u-turn and walk back into. We were already encountering a bother of rain, so I didn’t need any more telling. And the patisserie here is flat out incredible. The cabinets with single items […]

Pepperoni Restaurant, Cannes

Pepperoni Restaurant, Cannes

Located in a nice buzzy street, with a lot of other food options I’m not sure what exactly about Pepperoni stood out. It did have a few locals sprinkled around. But how did I make my way to Cannes? Well, it ended up being a […]

Depot Legal, Opera-Bourse, Paris

Depot Legal, Opera-Bourse, Paris

When I announced my Paris trip, my Parisian friend Thi Thu provided me a long list of places to check out. But only one of these was a brunch venue. And that was Depot Legal. This then became the catch up point for my cousin and I. And I was thrilled with the recommendation. Depot Legal is new on the block to the Paris food scene and it’s owned by a well-known pastry chef, Christophe Adam.
