One of the things I love about having visitors is sharing the food here with them.
Today was bookended with visits to Stohrer. In the morning we had pastries—Dana, Annika and Aidan, pain au chocolate, Chris a sweet bread and for me, a pain au raisin. At the end of the day, we returned to pick up an incredible rich but light chocolate mousse cake for Chris’s 40th birthday dinner (happy birthday, gooba!). Stohrer, one of the oldest and best patisseries in the city, didn’t disappoint and will get its own blog entry soon.
We also had sandwiches from Eric Kayser. My god, the bread! We sampled a chicken sandwich on a country wheat baguette, tuna on ciabatta and mozzarella and tomato on olive ciabatta. Simple but outstanding.
True to form, Dana made a beautiful dinner—fresh fish and veggies from rue Montorgueil’s (very overpriced) markets. Tomorrow the eating adventures will continue in earnest.
