After the heavy eating and high amounts of sugar over the holiday season followed by a 2-week vacation in the US, I was in need of a healthy jump-start into 2014. Being a huge fan of Marc and Amaury from Bob’s Juice Bar and Bob’s Kitchen I jumped on the opportunity to try their Bob’s Cold Press Juice Cleanse. I filled out their order form and immediately got a response for a PayPal transfer and was on my way to a healthier new year! Bob’s Cold Press (BCP) uses 100% organic produce to make their......

It is a typically French tradition to celebrate l’Epiphanie: this holiday celebrates the day on which the three kings Gaspard, Balthazar and Melchior came to pay their tribute to the world-famous baby born just a couple of weeks before. In French those wise men go by the cool name of Les Rois Mages (the Magi). Though this holiday has lost much of its religious significance in most French families, it has gained a sweeter, much more buttery one in the bargain: on the day of the Epiphany, families share a Galette des......

In search of a weekday after work apéro on a cold December day, two friends and I decided to test out the newly opened Treize…A Baker’s Dozen. Located in the back of a charming 6th arrondissement courtyard, Treize is not easy to find unless you know what to look for. But then again, that is part of its charm. We walked into this tranquil and cozy eatery just at closing time but the lovely owner, Laurel, and her sister generously welcomed us in for a glass of wine while they closed up.......

Tomorrow morning, France will kick off it’s new year by ushering in the soldes. As you may know, les Soldes in France are a pretty big deal. In short, they are countrywide, biannual sales on all unsold seasonal merchandise. The word soldes in French technically means ‘balances’ (as in a check balance or budget balance) but is used as les soldes (always with the les) to mean ‘sales’ in a shopping context. What’s quite exceptional about these French sales is that they are countrywide. France goes on sale. They are a national sport. French women organize their vacation......

My second attempt at a blog post for Savoir Faire is in a field in which I feel a fair amount more comfortable! This week I’ve ditched the apron for a winter coat and will tell you a thing or two about what you could see being worn by men in Paris this winter. The first thing to note is that menswear in Paris is always high quality and independent. This is not only because Parisian men naturally have more pride in their looks (some would argue it is European fashion capital),......

Asian flavors have made their way into some of Paris’ top tables over the past few years with places like La Table d’Aki and Abri, to name a few, but it has always been putting Asian flavors into French cuisine, until Blueberry. Since their opening in April 2013, Blueberry has been making maki roll after maki roll and pairing them with some serious cocktails. Blueberry is not your average sushi joint, however....
