About

The idea for this mini-blog was hatched when some new friends took a strong interest in both my regular blog, Croque-Camille: Food Adventures in Paris, and the panier bio (organic farm share basket) to which I subscribe.  They wanted to sign up, but weren’t sure if they would know what to do with all the vegetables and fruits week after week.  It was suggested that I post about what I was cooking with the contents of my panier, so that it could be reproduced the next day from theirs.  And that’s pretty much what we’re doing here.

Every Wednesday, when I pick up my bag of goodies, I will post the contents and any first impressions I have as to what I plan on cooking with them.  Throughout the week, when I make use of my local, organic vegetables and fruits, I’ll post the menu with descriptions.  The more elaborate posts and recipes will always be on Croque-Camille, although there is sometimes a delay between cooking and posting.

Hopefully this blog will help inspire you to cook more seasonally, try new vegetables, and maybe even learn to like ones you thought you didn’t.  I know I have.

    Dear Mr/Mrs,

    I found your blog through a friend that was living in Paris, and I got very excited with the vegetable that you posted on “the kale project”! My name is Rosa and I am originally Portuguese, but I am now living in Paris.working on my postdoctoral research. I absolutely love that vegetable! It is used a lot in Portuguese culinary and we call it Grelo, or grelos in the plural. It is part of traditional Christmas dishes and I really miss it a lot in Paris, as I have not been able to find it anywhere! I will definitely look for the little shop where you found it and, if you need some inspiration about what to do with it, I can share some of my favorites!

    Hope you keep this nice blog! It inspires me a lot!

    Best,

    Rosa
