Slowly but surely eating my way through the five boroughs and the rest of the world.

Recap of an incredible meal in Siena. Osteria le Logge was amazing. Located just off Campo in a quaint traditional space, it specializes in local traditional fare with a modern twist. Pumpkin ravioli with pistachios and mandarin orange rind, porcini mushroom soup with a poached egg (all the eggs we saw in Tuscany had this incredible orange hue), pasta with pigs cheeks, spaghetti with porcini mushrooms, pigeon marinated in beer, chopped veal, persimmon gelato with toast apples and cinnamon cake, hazelnut cannoli, gelato and cake. All amazing-even the pigeon. My personal favorite was the pumpkin ravioli but honestly every dish was ethereal. Best of all, the house red. It’s a special blend the chef makes and was probably the best red I had in chianti.

I need one of these! Hit an incredible fromagerie here in Versailles. These are flowers of monk head cheese. Are everyone. Dropped €30 on a red Sancerre and about two pounds of cheese. Perfect evening.

Le Servan, Paris
Ethereal lunch menu with everything from”duck’s heart” to roast chicken. The fish was perfection-light, buttery with a delicate sweet-salty flavor just like the sea. All of the vegetables were packed with flavor. The pork ravioli soup was perhaps the best soup I’ve ever had. Perfect little fried pockets of pork resting in a tangy sweet light broth with bright crispy vegetables-amazing. And the Paris Brest with hazelnut-to die for.
