I found some great Normandy Brie cheese today at Whole Foods Market. Specially imported from Normandy, France. I found that it was hard to resist, since it was on sale, so I treated myself to a slice. Not sure yet how I want to serve it . . . maybe baked in a pastry or with some of my preserves and crackers. Choices, choices . . hmm.
Either way, I will enjoy my brie with thoughts of Paris in my mind. I've actually travelled to France two times and I love buying a simple crepe while wandering the city or picking up local baked bread, cheese and other fresh toppings (even a bottle of wine). The simple delight of great food and cultural experiences are some of the joys in travelling. I highly recommend travelling to France, be sure to learn a few French words and don't worry if you are single traveller. The experience is definitely worth the time and money. Hopefully I can go back to Paris in the near future and enjoy the culture again in a different season.
Here's a few of my photos from Paris in the summer.
