Veal Paillard with Chasseur Sauce

How do I get from Claude Monet's La Chasse to this succulent little dish? Well with remarkable ease and without ever having been called upon to leap tall buildings in a single bound. For me, what's key to this recipe is the white wine–based…

Veal Tournedos in Cream Sauce - Veau à la Crème

According to my travel bible, that would be my trusty 1939 Guide de Pneu Michelin, lunch at the Tour d'Argent (fermé le lundi) was highly recommended especially their Filets de Sol Cardinal and the Langouste Winterhur. The daredevil in me decided to push onward until at last I found what I…

Moules au Roquefort - Mussels with Roquefort Sauce

There are so many ways to truly enjoy mussels or moules and each one more delicious than the next. I've mentioned only one other recipe for moules, in my meandering culinary musings, that I would truly consider to be the "essential moules" and that's Moules Marinières or Mussels in White Wine. Bear with me as I wax nostalgic…

Trout Meunière Amandine (Trout with Brown Butter and Almonds)

Anglers of the world, despair not as the trout season in France runs until the 3rd Sunday of September. You have plenty of time to plan your trip. As for me, I was dusting off my fly-fishing equipment the other day and looking dubiously at my collection of fly rods, reels and numerous tangled…

Monkfish with Ratatouille - Ange de Mer avec Ratatouille

Any story on yet another Cannes Festival was a "non-starter" as far as I was concerned. It was like flypaper, it seemed to attract hordes of mindless followers stuck on  the intimate details and every so boring lives of movie…

Chez Gladines' Basque-Style Scrambled Eggs

In my line of work, sources are as necessary as your right arm; but good sources are jewels to be jealousl y guarded and carefully nurtured. It was suggested that I ought to take a little side trip to the 13th arrondissement,  home to the quartier Butte aux Cailles with its narrow cobblestone…

Le Cannet and the Chocolate Festival and Room for Dinner

Just what is a "Cannet" and why am I even going there in the first place? Good questions. A week ago I was in Beaulieu-sur-Mer recovering from a fishing expedition with my friend Luc. Suffice to say it truly was an "expedition" and after a sumptuous feast, I felt I needed a week's bed rest. I eventually regained sufficient strength and was…

Breton Fish Stew or La Cotriade d'Armor

My most interesting coastal culinary journey finally comes to an end with a final stop at a well known seaside resort in Brittany.  While my dispatches from the front lines were well received, the credit card statements arrived at the office earlier than I had hoped which lead to my being recalled stateside. It has been a fulfilling journey…
