A Pop-Up Paris Picnic Is Coming to New York Diner en Blanc De Paris POP-UP The Dîner en Blanc, or impromptu “dinner in white,” in the Cour Carrée at the Louvre in Paris. New York is having its own. Gonzalo Fuentes/Reuters DRESS CODE Notre Dame was one of two sites for Paris's Dîner en Blanc.
I’m not the only one who is sometimes confounded by the French language. We recently had lunch at Café des Musées and my (French) partner ordered the entrecôte. Which I was eyeing on the menu, as I always do. But since I just finished a holiday food binge of epic proportions (plus a recent trip to San Francisco, where I gorged on tortillas, chow fun, and burritos), I decided to be a little more prudent and order the daily chalkboard special, a game dish that came with a salade de saison. Americans have an interesting relationship with steaks and beef: Before ordering, most people want to know what cut they’re going to get. Fair enough, as the French have their own specific cuts, such as bavette, onglet, rumsteack, and faux filet, among others.
Brussels Sprouts + Bacon + Maple Syrup + Mustard, while the weather's still cool March 31, 2014 I've recently renewed my committment to Brussels sprouts. I've always loved them, but never made them as often as I have in the past month or two. Maybe it's because I'm holed up in Connecticut, where the wind whips off the pond and winter seems endless. (It snowed, sleeted and hailed this morning!) Dorie Greenspan
