So why not come out for an evening “in the green”. Enjoy the first signs of spring … the trees are blooming, the birds are singing and the air has that special smell…. Nature at its best!
This Wednesday you can enjoy the “open air” and all things good … nice food (Irish chef Donal Skehan), a cool drink and great acoustic live music. So where exactly is that to be found in Paris you might wonder… well, by the beautiful Bois de Boulogne. The always very creative people behind Le Fooding are at it again and this time it’s the Foodstock! Come as you are or go in 70’s disguise… but make sure you go! This agent is sure it will be the launch of spring…
A tip: Sign up from Tuesday morning at lefooding.com

While this agent must flee town and invest elsewhere may I suggest that you pass by the fair Salon Vivre Autrement this weekend. More than 400 different stands with everything a BIO mind can dream of… Wish I could be there!
A tip: Food will be served, so why not go at lunchtime?

Working undercover also means being able to enjoy all surroundings … different assignments call for different settings. And sometimes you will be surprised of what you find out there. Like today where I had a very important briefing and was invited to Costes for lunch. To me that equals posh and fashion and maybe not the most interesting cuisine when a BIO lover. But at the same time also a very calm and undercover place to talk in private.
This agent really enjoys a good tartar from time to time… as long as it is made from really good quality BIO meat. And to my surprise this restaurant has now introduced their very famous tartar “a la retour” in a Aubrac BIO version. And let me rapport – it was absolutely delicious! A serving of green beans on the side. A bit of mustard. A glass of red wine. Very happy agent! Many good clues were exchanged …
A tip: You will also find some BIO eggs on the menu. Maybe Costes is on to something?!
