France’s Bread Lovers Have A New Idea—and It’s Half-Baked
The Famously Crusty Baguette Goes Soft As Customers Demand a Doughier Loaf
One of the great symbols of French gastronomy is under siege as customers demand a doughier loaf.
PARIS—Dominique Anract, a baker in Paris’s 16th arrondissement, sells about 1,500 baguettes every day, and most of them he wouldn’t want to eat himself.
The vast majority of his customers, he says, choose the…Continue

Cooking for someone makes me nervous – cooking for someone French (first time) makes me extremely nervous! So it was that we were hosting a family birthday luncheon for my French beau-père (father-in-law) with my belle-mère (mother-in-law) and her son and his girlfriend in attendence. I made sure this time that I set the table correctly, as I am left-handed,…Continue

Before I went to Borneo I had clocked up about 30 dives in places such as Fiji, Australia, Thailand and Egypt, but never had I been fortunate enough to see a Sea Turtle. It was one of the elusive creatures that I was so desperate to see in real life but it just hadn't happened yet. That all changed when I went to Malaysia and Borneo though. I saw my first turtle on my very first dive off of the Perhentian Islands...he was the resident turtle who frequented a particular spot, he sadly only…Continue
I am a strong proponent of learning to speak French, especially if you live here. My language learning took years, with many starts and stops along the way, as described in the book, “Solitary Desire.” As a former teacher of French, I can attest that foreign language learning is an ongoing process – with progress mainly through practice, practice, and more practice.
C’est en forgeant que l’on devient forgeron! (practice makes…Continue

There are several top-notch food markets in San Miguel de Allende, Mexico, all worth visiting. For a good introduction to the region’s foods and crafts, though, the bustling Mercado Ignacio Ramirez, known to most people as simply the central market, is a great place to start.

I’ve just toasted to Jeff and Vanessa’s future together. It was quite a wedding celebration; a full weekend whirl of parties, meals and preparation for the big event. For all the fun, I found myself reflecting on how much is involved when two citizens from different continents want to get married in the U.S.
The bride, a Brazilian beauty inside and out, has been in America for several years completing her education and gathering work experience.…Continue

A delight during my May trip to Mexico was a chance to join three fellow southerners for a cooking class in San Miguel de Allende. The lively day took us from market to table, with plenty of Mexican cooking basics to keep us occupied in between. A brightly hued soup of roasted poblano peppers was the perfect starter for a superb meal served with flair on a rooftop terrace overlooking the city.…Continue
