I’ll be in the City of Light for a week starting tomorrow, enjoying a well-deserved break. All the restaurant reservations were made weeks ago, which, in light of Adam Gopnik’s favorable comments on L’Ami Jean in this week’s New Yorker (see also his article on “Le Fooding”), was a judicious thing to do.
I’ll be back next Sunday, and in the meantime your reliable pinch-bloggers, Drs. Matthew Cobb and Greg Mayer, will be filling in.
Fig. 1. Riz au lait at L’Ami Jean: the world’s best rice pudding, served with either cherry confit or praline.
p.s. If you’re gonna comment that this food is unhealthy, don’t bother. As Julia Child once said, “Food is not medicine.”
