Didn’t tell chef Nicolas it was my birthday but he remembered and surprised me with this cake. One of the reasons why I love that restaurant. Have been celebrating my birthday there for the last 3 years.

The blog turns three today! There are only two posts since the last birthday. That’s pretty bad. For you who have checked back often, I apologize for the lack of posts and thank you for still following. There are some posts that are near completion and should be out soon; Swedish food and the state of food public relations, Japanese/Italian food forming a sort of third culture cuisine, and my recent adventures which I’ll disclose in a coming post.

The year has been quite a journey for me, with food playing a huge, if not central role in my life. Again, I don’t want to let the cat out of the bag, but you’ll read about it soon. Once again thank you for stopping by.


Birthday tart, L’Atelier de Joël Robuchon. Comes with a side of happy birthday in French from the service staff.
