Le Potager du Roi with La Cuisine Paris

Exploring The Potager du Roi at Versailles with La Cuisine Paris

On my last full day in Paris, I was fortunate enough to join a small group from La Cuisine Paris and head out on their new-ish tour of Le Potager du Roi at Versailles. Not your typical Versailles tour, this one doesn’t lead you around the ChĂąteau at all – rather you are shown something […]

Dieter's tartine from Around my French Table for French Fridays with Dorie

French Fridays with Dorie: Dieter’s Tartine

I’ll admit that since I’ve had Dorie Greenspan’s Around my French Table, I have completely misunderstood the title of this week’s recipe (Dieter’s Tartine, p 38).
