In order to brighten everyone’s Monday, I’m sharing an absolutely amazing dish with you today! Here’s my take on the infamous Miso Glazed Chilean Sea Bass! Though I only discovered Chilean sea bass after I moved to the US, it quickly became one of my favorites. For some reason, this type of fish isn’t popular at all in France.

But fear not, it actually doesn’t require much time in the kitchen. Continue reading “Passion Project: Classic Beef Bourguignon”
One of my favorite brunch spots in Paris also happens to serve some of the most delicious and creative salads I have ever eaten. I know… Salad for brunch? That’s not what most people have in mind when they picture a lazy Saturday morning meal. And I’m typically that way too… Trust me, I like my go-to eggs benedict with extra ham and homefries. But every now and then, it’s good to be adventurous. Continue reading “Passion Project: Tri-Tip Steak over Miso-Ginger Broccoli Slaw”
