Last bites from le Comptoir du Relais, Paris

This was part of our last lunch at Le Comptoir du Relais before having to leave for Roissy. Stuffed Cabbage, Camborde-style, and sweetbreads with braised chestnuts and raisins. Roberto had the Poularde facon poule au pot (see post below) and Jennifer went back to her first love, deep and dark fork-tender beef cheeks with elbow macaroni. A glass of red, tarte Tatin, pot de creme, a run-in with the chef, bise, bise, au revoir…je me sens de plus en plus un peu chez moi…

    I can’t wait to try out your recipes in Trail of Crumbs. I just want to say that I love your book (and New Orleans and Paris). You have great taste!

    I will definitely post about the recipes I try online (without revealing the recipe), but I really thought that the red beans and rice and crawfish bisque recipes looked intriguing and I loved your descriptions of peaches and berries in the book. I would actually like to try all of the recipes! As for my favorite restaurants, when I lived in NOLA, I ADORED Domilise’s for po’ boys. The half and half po’ boy is the best! In France, I just went to the places near my hotel, but there was an amazing seafood place near my hotel. I’ll try to find the name of it! Also, Berthillion for ice cream. Simply amazing.

    Dear Passionate Eater: I’m so glad you are enjoying Trail of Crumbs. Po-boys…are such a weakness of mine. I’ve posted some recent photos of them from NOLA.
