Paris never stops amazing me.
Today we walked our way through the city. We began with going to the Musee D’Orsay to see an exhibit on fashion during the impressionist era. There were actual dresses and clothing on display that were worn during the time Manet, Monet, Renoir and Tissot were drawing them. It was so beautiful.
We then trekked across town to take a French cooking course at Cuisine Attitude. The course was 75% in French with some translations thrown in kindly by the teacher. We made a peppers/onion egg starter followed by scallops and mashed parsnips and finished with a vanilla pot de creme with fresh strawberry sauce. The food was delicious and I was able to learn new techniques, which is always fun.
When you ask for coffee in French, they serve you espresso. Good thing I love espresso because it is very strong here.
