Gathering ...

Today is a day for gathering dear readers. It's a little chilly outside but the sun is out, shining that special light that only graces us as summer is coming to an end. Artists of pen (or stick, stone and feather point, depending on the century, of course) and brush have said it that is the most beautiful light known to man. I tend to agree. Fall is one of my favorite times of year for so many reasons (with the exception of a …See More

And so I went ...

I was not sure what kind of tale this was going to be. I went around and around, thinking to myself, what am I going to tell you about? Disclose ... if you will. Do I venture into it all? Do I rant? Unleash? Complain about crummy cuisine and overcooked lobsters (that’s all they do for heaven’s sake!)? Ponder how people, supposedly in the tourist trade, can stink eye guests (meaning tired us) brows furrowed in suspicion and then balk,  aghast that one does not want to sleep in (or pay a bleeding…See More

Salutations from Maria ...

I've made it! Made it! Oh my God. You have no idea. No idea. But I am about to give you an idea. I, dear readers, have just spent the last hour, on a bicycle, with a twenty pound knapsack, cycling through the countryside. The hilly countryside. The rugged countryside. The mountainous countryside. The getting whacked with bugs that literally went paff! into my unsuspecting chest countryside. Ughh. You get my drift. And for most people, this would be no problem, I think. For me, well, let's just…See More

A smattering of houses ...

Warning: Dear readers ...no photos! Take a breath! Calm down... in ...out ...phfeuuu...okay... It will all be fine. I know you can do it. It will be fun. Warm up your vivid imaginations, off we go...It was sunny and windswept that morning on the mountains of Mediterranean Turkey. We were seaside and on our way somewhere very special. The scent of the sea drew me in and made me a little dizzy with anticipation. I closed my eyes and relished the warm sunshine on my skin and the thick mineralized…See More

I come bearing jewels...and flowers...

I'm here. I'm here! I know. I know. It's been a while. I wish I had a list of witty, well thought out excuses. Alas, I hadn't even realized that three weeks had gone by dear readers. Three weeks. Yikes. And when I did realize it (two days ago), straight to the keyboard I went. It felt good. I had been missing it, and you, dear readers.  I typed and I typed, diligently for hours, knowing I had at least three posts to deliver this week and after an afternoon of walking through my brain, I had…See More

Difficult and delicious ...

 It was stormy outside when I asked the question. Kind of like today. I always seem to remember the weather. It was a difficult question for me to ask. I had been thinking about it, pondering its meaning for many months.Can you help me to kill a pig? So that I understand what it means? I ask.Sure, he says. When would you like to do it?Just like that.For a long time now dear readers, I have been thinking about my relationship with the land and sea creatures that I eat. The countless ducks,…See More

Beans ...

Well, here I am. I can't believe it. About to type words that I never imagined I would even enter my stream of consciousness as I would (and vehemently do) curse anyone wishing upon us anything other than balmy beauty (see rant on inhumane cold here). I, dear readers, have been eagerly waiting for this day to come. This cold day. Sweater on, drinking pu'erh ginger tea, slightly uncomfortable but must be outside nails slightly…See More

My plan is this ...

Two things happened this week dear readers (well, three if you count the F1, it was wet, we'll stick to two).One, I got a badass new camera (thank you kickass family)! !!!!!! (feel divulgence of newly acquired badass new camera deserves exclamation points in their own right) and am super stoked about it (see copious exclamation points above for proof) and can't wait to take lots of pictures and to share them with you, dear readers!Two, more rain. Seriously. I risk redundancy with this already…See More

Antiquing and Gnudi ...

I never thought I would start off a post this way but here I am:   I am lacking lyrical inspiration today.There. I said it (insert thoughts in head here going: ummmm...do you really think you should be saying this? I mean you write, it's "out loud" you know...). Well dear readers, I am throwing caution to the wind, upon your kind, forgiving souls, and hoping you do not judge me for taking a linguistic nap.Now, that said, kind, forgiving souls (aka you dear readers) just because I can't quite…See More

Contemplation and salad ...

Contemplation and salad ... To state the very obvious, rain is everywhere these days people. Everywhere. You turn your head or ear in any direction and it's, well, rainy, gray, misty, gusty, blustery, floody (I know it's not a real word but I like it) especially floody (wanted to use it again). Here in my current hometown of Quebec it's also floody. Especially along the Richelieu river. I mean farmers are finding…See More

The pockets of stillness ...

The pockets of stillness ...There I was, waiting to get out. Like a kid with my rain boots on, buggy in hand, scarf on head (I felt very Garbo) staring through the window at the beautiful rainy day outside. It was going to be my first trip to the market this season. I love rainy day market trips. Listening to the patter of raindrops on all kinds of surfaces, the other sounds of life on a wet day. Life sounds different in the rain.…See More

Nice to have another Canadien on board. Jeff Nimer who created this site is a good friend of mine, I mentored him in his early culinary carrer. It's good to see he has evolved into quite the cook, & you sound obbsessed, thats always a good ingredient for sucess.
