Links I Love: March Week 1

links i love from Every Day Parisian News with A French Twist

This week was a lot of fun here in Chicago. I took a cooking class at The Chopping Block where we made Beef Bourguignon and an apple tart. Also, I finally got to try The Blanchard a French inspired restaurant not too far from where I live. To top it all off I had a meeting with my friends at Vosges Chocolates, we are working on something pretty sweet I can’t wait to share! If you are wondering how I balance all the rich food and staying fit? The answer is, I dance just about every day at a studio in my neighborhood. I call it my daily “meeting” I start work at 7 am answering emails and checking stats so it’s challenging to duck out for an hour but not impossible. 

Here is a roundup of favorite links I found with a French Twist:

My friend Lindsey Tramuta of Lost in Cheeseland has a new book out in Paris that I can’t wait to get my hands on, called The New Paris.  She will be in Chicago this April at Read it & Eat. She also wrote this article for The NY Times which gives a sampling of what’s to come with the new book
