Despite all potential hinderances, I am going to try to take myself to Bordeaux in April. I want to gather up a few more recipes with friends for my second book, and also plan FOOD TOURS in Bordeaux for September 2022 and Spring 2023, and Fall 2023. Let me know if you have any interest in a food tour with me and what YOU would like to do and learn on a trip like this, if you could design it for yourself. I will hopefully have more details to share soon.
Ideas include: underground chateau wine cellar tours in St Emilion, walking tours of medieval St. Emilion, walking tours of medieval Bordeaux, including church and cathedral visits, food tour of Bordeaux, chocolate tastings, walking in vineyards, winery tours, French cooking demonstrations, wine tastings, cheese tastings, butchery/meat prep demonstrations, market tours, and how to photograph a beautiful place. There will be time for exploring on your own, journaling, reflection. All the good stuff. It’s a custom, unique opportunity to see my Bordeaux, meet my Bordelais friends, stay in UNESCO’s world heritage site Saint Emilion, and experience the French lifestyle with me….
Fat Loss Part 2: In the last newsletter, I wrote about some weight/fat loss after my trip to Bordeaux. One of my lovely, loyal newsletter readers asked me how she and her girlfriends, not on any specific exercise regime, could work on fat loss without having to take a trip to France. Good question.
I sent myself to Bordeaux on a mission: to gather recipes and photographs for my next book, video clips for my upcoming online cooking courses (wish me luck), and to remind myself that France was, in fact, still there. How? By reconnecting with my friends there who have become like family to me. I came back inspired and overwhelmed with beautiful material, and with some insights on weight/fat loss (what!?), while having worked on delicious recipes for organ meats (les abats), and a fig tart (video here)…..read the newsletter here.
