It was fun while it lasted. I started the "Cooking in Paris" series ages ago, but after just a few posts, I realized I didn't like writing out recipes. Aw well! And I also realized I didn't really want to do all this cooking all the time. Especially in the summer, when it's hot and all you want is water with a side of water. Especially when I should be writing songs and doing music, not cooking all day. Alas, you may have noticed the same goes for the blog. While six months ago, I was all in, working at the dining table in my aunt's house in Colombia every morning from 9 to 12, now it's sporadic and only if I have the time. But it's okay. And I do hope that whoever stumbles across my blog will get a little something out of it. Enjoy it. That would be nice.
Steak au poivre and leeks with mustard sauce (should I really have used two different sauces in one plate? That's probably against every cooking rule there is). I followed Mimi's black pepper & cognac steak recipe (HERE) and a Saveur recipe for the leeks (HERE). It was a winter dish. I remember eating that during the holidays in 2013 with my friend Kady and my dad. Now that it's summer, this doesn't sound appealing at all. But hey, bookmark those recipes for the coming winter because mmmmm it was very good.
I also added some pictures of cheese. French cheese. I remember thinking that I would talk about each cheese a little but it's been over a year and I don't remember "le villageois" at all. It was good though. I would definitely remember if it had been disgusting. The first cheese is called "Brillat-Savarin" and it is in my top 5 favorite cheeses. Maybe top 3. If you're in Paris, I absolutely recommend finding a Fromagerie and asking for a nice soft quarter or half of Brillat-Savarin. You will not regret it.
