Travel Tuesday: Bellies on Foot with La Cuisine Paris

Thomas Keller in Toronto and TK-Os (Thomas Keller Oreos)

Oreos. Something I didn’t grow up eating. Something I don’t particularly like. At least not the packaged version. So when I got the chance to try Thomas Keller’s version from the Bouchon Bakery Cookbook, I couldn’t wait.  The kind folks at Thomas Allen provided me with a sneak peek of the cookbook (you can get […]
