Part II: From France with love

The last few weeks have been very hectic. I lived at work, and between airports, respectively train stations. There was the short Italy holiday, which was sublime. I am still trying to find a Tuscan chicken liver paté recipe, so if anyone has any suggestions …

Italy was primarily focused around wine. I started collaborating on a Belgian wine website, so research needs to be done. I know it’s a hard job, but someone has to do it 🙂

Then I left for Paris to work there for a short while. Paris is always an amazing experience. Cold and rainy this time around, we spent most of our time in the Centre Pompidou – and no, not in the Georges restaurant, and of course, trying new restaurants and wine bars. I also picked up a recipe on a deep pan quiche, which was a French delight.

Back in Brussels, it has been cold and only lately do we have a hint of spring. The days are getting longer, which helps me get out of the winter hibernation. With more daylight I seem to have more energy as well, to cook, to try new restaurants, to enjoy the simple things in life. And I hope to get to write about all of it on a more regular basis.
