Food/Culture/Places

I’m a New Yorker born in Brooklyn. Even after years of living in different places from Paris to California, NYC is still where I feel at home. Couldn’t shake it if a tried! My wife Marie is a Franco-American country girl turned world traveler with a flair for finding the best of everything from food to photography. We’ve both found a second home in western France, Brittany.  .. Je suis new yorkais, né à brooklyn. Après

We don’t know what it is about the place. Maybe it’s the sea, the Celtic culture, a funky alternative feel or the hardnosed but friendly character, but we feel closer to Nantucket than to Paris. Rennes, the capital of the region, is getting more cosmopolitan by the day. It’s that Atlantic connection, from commerce to culture. Bretons have been going to New York for over a 100 years. So, now it’s only natural to for us bring a bit of Brooklyn to Brittany and share the journey….

...Our food  is inspired by the American influences from the Northeast, and mostly,by the great seafood and produce we find here at our farmer's market the Marché des Lices. This is what we eat, for real. .. Notre cuisine a une influence américaine indéniable, mais surtout, ce qui nous inspire ce sont les produits du Marché des Lices,en particulier les fantastiques poissons et fruits de mer. Nos recettes, c'est en suivant le lien ci-dessous...

....Exhibitions, concerts, festivals, museums: it will be a very subjective selection of what we like to do in Brittany. ..Expos, concerts, festivals, musées,ce sera une sélection très personnelle et subjective de ce que nous aimons ici en Bretagne....

....We travel a lot through the region, and get to discover the most wonderful places: remote islands, hikes by the sea, old world hotels in grand mansions or cute airbnbs, deserted beaches perfect for kite surfing. If we liked them, we'll share our discoveries with you..On se ballade beaucoup en région, et on en profite pour découvrir la beauté sans cesse renouvellée de la Bretagne. Parfois, sur la route, on a des coups de coeur pour des lieux magiques, et on les partagera avec vous....
