more pictures, less words.
bon appetite.

behind the scenes. sit back and relax. enjoy the greenery.

right. madeleines fresh out of the oven! chaud! chaud!


let’s begin.


asparagus, summer pea and leek soup.



pan seared scallops and pickled radish, garnished with marjoram.



herb crusted halibut with grapefruit and green bean salad.



ribeye with fig reduction, roasted pepper puree, and mini onion rings.



my absolute most favourite part of a meal. dessert.
i’m in heaven.

madeleines, mango sorbet, and pistachio chocolate sticks.

reality check; it’s been just over a month since i’ve been back from europe, oh how i miss it so…

i feel super stressed! &somehow i decided or would like to think that blogging will bring me back to earth… somehow?
alternatives please!

since my real life cooking mama has returned from paris, she rarely ever cooks at home; but this is what she whipped up for dinner the other day.
sablefish (black cod) &spaghetti squash? i tried looking it up but couldn’t pin down the exact type of squash that i had.

it’s mid autumn festival tomorrow and the real life cooking mama is hosting and preparing an 8 course meal for 16-20 people in our home?!!!
check back soon to see what’s for dinner tomorrow night:)

i’m bad with commitments but i will try my best to blog at least once a week. i have still yet to write about the oh so fabulous michelin noted and michelin starred restaurants in europe that i’ve been extremely lucky to have eaten at.

…i’ll be there in a heart beat*

i’m finally here (&did i mention, reunited with mom)! it’s now my fourth day in paris now.
my sister kat will be here in three days! can’t wait:)

i was originally planning to blog once a week, but then i’d probably forget what i did during which days cause there’s just too many things that i do, places i go to, things that i eat, etc.
going to make my blogs short&sweet hopefully with less words and more pictures. YOU do the translating.
here’s what my life in paris looks like.enjoy!

okay… or not..
maybe i wont blog, not that i dont want to, but my mom’s laptop is acting up.
so instead please go and like me on facebook on the right and check out the pictures there in the “paris<;;3" album instead:)
new pictures constantly being uploaded*
