Bon voyage! Looking forward to reading about your Paris trip. What a nice way to spend Valentine's Day.

I didn't know you were supposed to boil the meat before browning. I'll have to try that. Anyway, what Lydia said...Bon Voyage! I just finished reading Without Reservations and the author has a magical time in Paris--I need to return. But in the meantime, I can't wait to read about your culinary adventures!


Paris sounds like a great place to spend Valentine's Day (or any day for that matter!) I do agree, Fine Cooking has absolutely become my favorite magazine. Every single recipe I've made from it has been a keeper.

Do check out the best hot cocoa ever made while in Paris. It's on the Rue de Rivoli, across the street from the Tuleries, I think closer to the Champs Elysee side than the Louvre side. Drat, what was that place called?!?! I think it was "Angelina's Tea Room". It's a few storefronts toward the Champs Elysee from the Hotel Brighton (where we stayed). Order the $5.00 cocoa--and never regret it! Oh, I still dream about that stuff...

christine, you probably won't get this until after you return to the states (especially not knowing about the internet connection), but i hope you have a glorious, romantic, wonderful valentine's day in paris. how brilliantly romantic...

bon voyage!


Paris and V-Day...what a beautiful combination! I hope you have a lovely, romantic and restful time.


Have an abundantly romantic Valentine's Day trip. And thanks for making me so hungry with this amzaing post! I'm getting ideas! :)

Thanks, Lydia. I do have (remarkably good) internet access, so I can post!

Lisa, I don't know if you have to boil the meat, but I think it's a precaution if you plan to braise for hours at 200 degrees.

Kalyn -- great recipes, and great photos too. Gourmet's have gotten a little gloomy of late.

I'll try to check it out, Robyn, thanks!

Thanks, Melissa. Pretty glorious so far!

Thanks, Kristen. It's drizzly rain here, but romantic all the same.

This post makes you hungry, Kevin? Good! Turn about is fair play!
