for May, 2011
Tune in for more tomorrow!
Stay tuned–more non-airplane food coming!
I’ll be in France very soon, and it’s honestly all I can think about. This will be my first time in Paris, or “the city of deliciousness” as I’ve come to call it. I can’t wait to buy crepes off the street, drink my weight in wine and slather a giant slab of butter on a fresh baguette…every morning (the baguette part is the only thing I’ll do every morning).
I’m also looking forward to shopping the legendary French markets, where I’ll buy the fixings to cook a few classic dishes—you know, a little coq au vin or duck l’orange, and maybe a gratin or two. I’ll even be armed with a few carefully chosen French cookbooks to support this coming culinary prowess.
If you ask me, 2010 was Heirloom-LA’s year. The catering company, armed with its “farm-to-plate” ethos and lasagna cupcakes, was suddenly everywhere—food blogs, coffeehouses, wine bars, neighborhood grocers… you name it. They even showed up on this blog when I tried and loved their hearty Wild Boar Bolognese.
As it turns out, this year might be even more momentous for Heirloom-LA, seeing that they just launched a food truck. Yeah, I know, it’s hard to get excited by the latest food-on-wheels concept, but Heirloom does it right. For one thing, Heirloom’s food is locally sourced from small farms, and for another, their menu will change daily. None of the usual food truck doldrums here.
