Miele New York Culinary Adventure

50BestRestaurantsAwards

Last month I had the honor of attending a New York Culinary Adventure which was hosted by Miele. Four of us were exposed to insider events and resources of culinary New York, which included the World’s 50 Best Restaurants Awards Gala. Our hosts planned a days-long feast for the senses that we will never forget. I’m still working off some of the incredible food we ate, and I can vouch that every bite was worth it.

If you know me personally, you’d know I want to throw a party and serve the unreal food we ate to all. Since that’s geographically impossible, we’ll just have to go heavy on images from a few of the trip highlights. That’s your cue that this post will be extremely image (rather than calorie) rich… [Read more…]

A DAY AT CHÂTEAU DE FONTAINEBLEAU
By Guillaume Picon Photography by Eric Sander

Whether you have visited Chateau de Fontainebleau or not, Flammarion’s book A Day at Chateau de Fontainebleau is a feast for the eyes and a worthwhile adventure, offering a rare view into areas of the château that guests could not personally access.

Nearly a thousand years have shaped this residence of French kings and emperors of every dynasty- Capetian, Valois, Bourbon, Bonaparte, and Orleans. Down the centuries, every passing era has left its mark on the details of this remarkable palace. [Read more…]

FINEST PAINTINGS BY IMPRESSIONIST GUSTAVE CAILLEBOTTE AT THE KIMBELL ART MUSEUM THIS FALL

Gustave Caillebotte: The Painter’s Eye November 8, 2015–February 14, 2016 On view in the Renzo Piano Pavilion

Fort Worth’s Kimbell Museum does it again, with a jaw dropping retrospective of a hugely important, and surprisingly unknown Impressionist. Gustave Caillebotte is, hands down, my favorite artist. His career began with failure – rejection by the Salon in 1875, when he submitted the above painting The Floor Scrapers to the French Government’s annual elite art exhibition. The painting was considered vulgar (as IF-) and the perspective unsettling (again, seriously?!).  [Read more…]

Shop Dallas: Bisous Bisous

Uptown Macarons-Shop Dallas: Bisous Bisous www.CourtneyPrice.com

Dallas hit the jackpot when Andrea Meyer decided to open a patisserie in the West Village area.  This energetic and enterprising macaron-maven has an impressive background that she shares with us today as we discus her interesting path which lead to the creation of Bisous Bisous. Her eye for detail, love of Paris, and professional path make for a great story- and the best macrons on the planet. If you don’t live in Dallas, I apologize in advance for [Read more…]
