Just read your piece on the roast chicken posted today, and it is making me salivate!!! It looks too good to be true….you know how I LOVE a roast chicken!! Next time we come over let’s do a roast chicken(s) meal together washed down with lots of red wine……!!!


We were all counting on photos of the roasted chicken this week. But WHERE, oh where is our hot, hot, hot Chicken Man????

Sometimes, I have to time reading your foodie posts after I've eaten or I'll devour the screen. Nothing is better than a simple roast chicken but tell me: which tastes better the regular or farm raised? Surely France doesn't do those horrid chick farming like in the US. With all the salmonella scares lately about eggs, I'm wanting to know where my food comes from.


When I lived in Paris, I would buy one of these chickens every Sunday on my way home from church and share it with my Old English sheepdog who was eagerly awating my return with our Sunday sared dinner....thanks for the memories! I share your bog with friends..great verbiage and beautiful pictures


oh my god I'm hungry !!! thank's Richard !!!


Your series on Rue St. Antoine Food Week is bringing back wonderful memories. I am so happy I decided to live in that neighborhood, far, far away from the sterile and banal 16th


Richard, so all you have to do is leave your apartment, go to Boucherie Becquerel, then stop by the Aux Ducs de Gascone for some pate, then turn around and walk for another 60 seconds to get some nice cheeses. My jealousy defies my love to ipreferparis :)


I would love a butcher shoppe tutorial. Are those beef kabobs actually $28/lb (K). How can folks afford those prices? Are my calculations incorrect ?
I love the blog. I am truly vicariously living my Paris life through you.
