TASTE | BABETTE'S FEAST

My favorite restaurants in New York City are Ladurée in summer for their garden, Left Bank, a low key farm to table restaurant that is my home away from home and Indochine which is a staple for me.

In Paris I am in LOVE with La Grande Epicerie at Le Bon Marché. It is the best worldwide food store and makes Eataly look like a suburban deli (which it is not at all).

In my French country house village of Wimereux in the north of France, I love Hotel du Centre for timeless French cooking.

My favorite food-centric film is Babette’s Feast  and my kitchen secret is that my fridge is always ready so I can prepare impromptu meals for at least 6 people at any time. But really, anything goes – people come for the company, not for my cooking skills – and I always make sure to use LOADS of spices.
