Paris late fall early winter

I am about to go on book tour with the release of Trail of Crumbs, which was yesterday. Before heading out, I wanted to post some belated words and images from a recent trip to Paris…

I always go to le comptoir du relais and have a bite as soon as I arrive.

 

fruits de mer

Here’s a Parisian surf and turf–pork rillettes and fresh oysters from Arcachon…

…and a glass of wine to soothe away the wrinkles of jetlag.

 

scallops

And then the day continues… a large plateau Scallops in beurre blanc at Allard

Butter by the gram

tout au beurre

Oh, why not everything butter…

 

scallops at le comptoir

Back to le comptoir for another bite…Scallops with toasted almonds and parsley…

eggs with truffles

And eggs sunny side up with a mountain of truffles…

    Hi Kim,
    I was taking a Google image search tour of hats in Paris when I came upon this lovely picture of you in very suitable hat. Scrolling further I found one of my favorite foods – Oysters. My wife and I are headed to a ‘ster BBQ tomorrow.
    I like your site – the menu blackboard is a great touch. Many tasty pics. I’ll be back to visit and I’ll bring friends. I’ll check out your read Trail of Crumbs too.
    Cheers,
    Stefan Schinzinger
