Guest Post: Lieselotte Maria Fritsch

  Hello Everyone, My name is Lieselotte, I live in a valley right in the center of Austria, surrounded by mountains and forests. My husband Dieter and I were lucky to get to know Corey and Yann a couple of years ago when they were on a motorbike tour through Austria. We found them “très sympathique“; but anyone who has had the chance to know them personally will know what I mean.   Corey was fascinated by what she called “coffee hopping in the alps“...

  I am a finder, and maker. I am a 67-year-old woman,  I am lucky  I am happy And I found my tribe.     I hate to travel, but the opportunity to spend a week roaming around Provence  with Corey as a guide seemed like a worthwhile endeavor.   Corey took us to a small market in her village,   while the others in the group shopped and wandered,   I watched as the vendors did a dance that was familiar to me.   I loved being a street vendor,        For many years I sold at a weekly flea market in ...

Small Bites: Kale is a standard on the healthy edge of restaurant dining

I take much pride in being omnivorous — which is to say, I eat anything that doesn’t eat me first. And I’ve been a proud omnivore for as long as I can remember. As a small child, I actually looked forward to my parents making liver for dinner. I mean, really, what sort of child doesn’t just eat liver — they like liver. I was strange then. And I’m strange now. But certainly, over the years, I’ve developed preferences. I prefer Kit Kat candy bars to Snickers, and 3 Musketeers to Milky Way. I like ...

Guest Post: Kathy Benusa

Write a guest post for Corey’s blog?  My inner critic was quick to respond, “No way, it told me, that’s too scary. It’s out of your comfort zone.” Totally true, I thought.     Then, I casually mentioned the idea to my other half, Randy, the best person I know and my high school sweetheart.   He thought it was a fabulous idea.   I kicked the idea around for a few more days starting to warm to it.   When I shared it with my life coach friend, Sherri, she was “beyond, beyond” that this amazing ...

Outdoor dining in North Hollywood – 3 delicious options

One of the upsides — indeed, probably the only upside! — of the COVID-19 pandemic has been the rise of the Culinary Walking Streets. Neighboring restaurants are banning together to offer outdoor dining spaces, in some cases stretching onto the street where cars are now restricted, or even banned. Wonderful examples include Catalina Avenue in Redondo Beach, Manhattan Avenue in Manhattan Beach, 2nd Street in Long Beach, Greenleaf Avenue in Whittier and Colorado Boulevard in Old Pasadena. We can ad...

How Napoleon went from ‘cannibal’ to ‘Majesty’ in 20 days

Unfazed by his first defeat, Napoleon swept back into power in 1815, going from exile to emperor within a single month.Parisian newspapers scrambled to adapt: at the start of that month, Napoleon was a 'cannibal'; at the end, 'His Majesty'.For the first time ever, this map illustrates the spatial dimension of that shift – but the anecdote, made famous by Dumas, has a twist. Napoleon's return In French history, the period from March 1 to March 20, 1815 is known as Le Vol de l'Aigle: the Flight ...

Classic Salade Nicoise

Authenticity is a broad subject that probably many people agree that we’ll never agree on, since food changes and evolves, as time goes by, and as people cross borders, using what they can get where they live. But I sometimes have an amusing image in my head that the people who are scouring the internet, pointing out inauthentic recipes, are sitting in cafes, eating chicken Caesar Salads. (The true Caesar Salad doesn’t have chicken on it. Or tomatoes, shrimp, corn, or tortilla chips, which I’ve...
