Merry Christmas!

Just wanted to wish everyone a Merry Christmas and share some of my recent loves:

Chocolate: Jean-Charles Rochoux, hands down... especially the fresh fruit bars available only on Saturdays and also, he's a lovely, friendly man


Wine: Still partial to the Chinon we bought from Monsieur Sourdais, particularly Les Cornuelles 2003 from the year of the 'canicule' (heat wave).


Bread: Pain au Levain from Au 140


Cheese: Please don't make me choose............


Meat: Filet de Sanglier, available at the Christmas fair at La Défense and at Place Saint Suplice. Delicious, more-ish, perfect texture wild boar.... soo good.... and so unfair of the stall seller not to give me a contact where I can get more. All I know is that they are at the Christmas fair, at the Salon de Agriculture and at the Bastille market for 1 month during May. GO GET IT NOW!!! So delicious.............

Restaurant: Still Biche au Bois

Best skincare discovery: Patyka Huile Absolue

Book I most enjoyed reading: Life and Times of the Thunderbolt Kid - Bill Bryson


Book which haunted me the most: We Need to Talk about Kevin - Lionel Shriver


Site which makes me almost wet myself laughing: Elf Yourself - you have got to try this!


Sorry this isn't a comprehensive list. I'll have to try harder.... yep, there's a New Year's resolution right there!


I do wish you all the very best Holiday Season with much overindulgence, laughter and of course, food.


Happy Christmas.
