Playing With My Food ~
A journal about food, thought, travel, and life; by Chef & Raconteur Chaz French.

Things are afoot, again!

Today, I booked two trips, one for next weekend, is the first of many to come, to Ithaca, NY where my dear friends Tom & Sue have relocated from San Antonio. The second trip was my purely selfish, and entirely needed solo getaway to Ixtapa/Zihuatenejo for Thanksgiving weekend. I’m so jazzed about these trips. And […]

Texas: The Long Good-Bye…

Back to Paris

Meanwhile, back in Paris the weather got better and we got our asses all over the city. Tweet

And yes, more Dijon

I take a lot of photos, and what is going up here is only a small part of what’s even online, and an even smaller part of what’s on my MacBook… Yes, I take some nice photos, and I’m good with an editor and the ‘crop’ function, but there’s a shit-ton of pics that don’t […]

Dijon a city of doorways…

I love entryways, and in Dijon there were so many that were open, or just gorgeous that I took a bunch of photos of entryways… Enjoy. Tweet
