The meal is on the house

I've never asked not to pay for my lunch in any restaurant. And yet two restaurants the same evening refused to let me pay for my meal while on vacation. How did this happen?

Beetroot Pasta Disaster

This intriguing pasta roll turned into a resounding disaster. Can you make something out of it?

The Chef is Naked

Most people seem to assume that celebrity chefs have great gastronomic restaurants. Not the case with Bocuse, apparently the King of the French Cuisine is naked.

Truffle-hunting in Paris

It is not easy to find a truffle worth the unreasonable asking price nowadays. I tried my luck at Terre de Truffe and La Maison de la Truffe in Paris. See how it works!

Paris 'Branché' Restaurants

Restaurants remain 'branché' only for a couple months in Paris. What happens after that? What is a branché restaurants anyway? And most importantly - how good is the food?

Saint Martin Fair

My visit to a 500-year-old country fair held once a year in Vevey, Switzerland.

Tuiles à l'orange Lenotre Baking Class

Back at the Lenôtre pastry school in Paris to make tuiles à l'orange - a smart tile-shaped flat cookie served with tea in gastronomic restaurants.

A Day Out in the Swiss Alps

Last weekend my friend John invited me to spend the day at his chalet in the Swiss Alps. We sledged down the fearsome 5-miles-long run and finished with cheese fondue.

One for the road at The Last drop in Edinburgh

Drinking whisky in the pub where men condemned to death had their last meal made me think about life, death and gluttony.

Another dish with Eleonora in her kitchen near the Etna in Sicily - gorgeous veal meatballs wrapped in lemon-tree leaves and grilled.

Engine Room Dosas

Rick makes giant Indian savory pancakes on the towboat he steers through the Snake River system.

A Visit of Château Pavie

Gerard Perse, one of the most important men in the Bordeaux wine industry, took me on a three-hour tour of Château Pavie in St Emilion. See for yourself how this man turned a failing château into one of the most prized wines in the region. Complete with many pictures and my 360° panorama of the huge limestone cellar and exclusive heart-to-heart interview with Perse.

Quicke's Slow Food Cheddar

My visit of Quicke's Dairy in Devonshire, the largest of the nine remaining producers of real farmhouse cheddar, or how to produce world class traditional cheddar on a large scale.

Primeval Tyrolian Cheese

Graukäse is the closest offspring of the first cheese ever made. It is so strong you can actually raise the dead by placing piece under the deceased's nose. Follow me to Valle Aurina in Südtyrol to see how it's made at the farm. 

Dinner at Le Train Bleu

A memorable meal at one of the most spectacular restaurants in Paris, located in the Gare de Lyon train station.
