I make a mean vinaigrette like any well-taught French girl. My knife skills were cultivated in the four star kitchen of Lacroix. I speak multiple languages, including English, français, español, e un po’ d’italiano. And, I fancy throwing dinner parties in my rather tiny apartment. This is the chronicle of my adventures in the New York culinary world and beyond.
So, why gourmette•nyc, you might ask? For as long as I can remember, my father has called me lapinette, the diminutive of lapine, meaning little bunny. Given my longtime passion for food and cooking, he has also been known to call me gourmette, the diminutive of gourmet. So, as I thought about what I might call this blog, gourmette instantly popped into my mind. And it clicked. There wasn’t a more fitting name, really. As for nyc, the majority of my culinary adventures take place in New York City (often times at the Union Square Greenmarket), though I do write about my travels to other cities, including Paris and Buenos Aires.
