I am eternally trying to get rid of those 2 or 3 kilos gained over the winter but with one-digit temperatures and grey, rainy days it is hard not to devour that yummy piece of chocolate after dinner or say no to a glass of wine over lunch with your girlfriends.
Hot yoga and the extra half-mile on my run just won't do the trick any longer... I simply love good cuisine. By no means a foodie, I am just a lover of a delicious meal with great company. Paris might be grey but nothing beats a late night dinner in a French bistro with my hubby, a fun paella with good friends or some true International family home cooking.
And, I am not known to resist dessert...
A visiting friend from America is a great excuse to get together over a glass of wine... or two!
Even the healthy version comes as a huge portion
Spanish Paella Sunday lunch
Colombian Patacones as aperitivo
Italian Pasta evening
Venezuelan Arepas festival
French bread... lots of it!
A sophisticated Parisian brunch finale!
Walking into the boulangerie to buy baguette...
... but ending up with Petits Fours!
A visitor from Italy who knows me too well!
