I miss you. It is all my fault really. You were always around and I took you for granted. But it wasn't until I finished reading your book My Life in France that I realized how little I knew about you.
You captivated me with your adventures as a 35 year old newlywed arriving in Paris and embracing the language, the people, the city and the cuisine. Your passion for all things French and desire to share that with the world through our stomachs was such a gift.
As soon as I finished the book late Tuesday night while staying in faux Portofino I realized what I had to do when I got home. I had to try cooking real French food. Where to begin? With you of course! I'm going to try Mastering the Art of French Cooking. We'll see how well this goes. I'll keep you posted.
