    Love these articles, thanks for sharing! Do you know if the Boulevard Raspail market is the only place to find kale in Paris? I’ve been looking for it for ages…

      Kristen keeps a list on the Kale Project website.

    I have just read the article about turmeric tea with HUGE interest. I am currently in absolute agony with neck pain and it’s really affecting my sleep so it’s causing a lot of spin off problems too. I am going to try this so thank you so much for the link.

    BTW, leaving Macau in two weeks time to relocate our base to our house in France near Beaulieu sur Dordogne (not far from Brieve la Galliard). Who knows, we might be able to meet in the not so distant future.

    Congrats on your 10th birthday!

      Very sorry to hear about your neck pain, Liz, fingers crossed that Heidi’s tea provides some relief! And best of luck with the move, I’m sure it will be an adjustment, but it will be lovely to meet sometime.

  • Laura

    The Quebec site is great! Thanks for finding it. I could have used that a few months ago.

      Thanks, I’m glad you enjoyed it!

    Congrats on the 10th. I think this is wonderful. I have only been at this a short while, but I hope to be here in 10.

    The apple peels sound wonderful. What temperature did you roast them at?


    • clotilde

      I think it was 150°C (300°F). Let me know if you try it!

    If you like the medical posters, you will love the collection at the Bibliothèque Fornay.
