I always love roaming the hoods of the 10th, especially after stopping by my favorite restaurant in Paris. The neighborhood around La Chapelle is filled with life. At times perhaps not the most comfortable to stroll for some, but if you have a chance to give it a wander, I highly suggest it. It’s filled with so much culture, and a different taste of Paris.
Olivia is passionate about India, and this neighborhood gave her a little taste of the culture she missed so much. Before heading over to the Lillet Rosé Launch Party, we popped in this market located right south of the exit of the metro stop La Chapelle. Ginger fest at its best.
I was going through these pictures and realized how full of color they are, and I just had to share them. This market’s shelves were organized with bright, beautiful packaging and Olivia fit in just right.
Who knew something as simple as someone grocery shopping could be so photogenic?

If you haven’t tried Olivia’s carrot cake, you probably should. This bad boy is as delicious as can be.
One weekend on the countryside, she introduced me to her recipe.
It was one of those relaxing evenings outside the city, gloomy and cold. It was perfect for a little cooking adventure, and I’d always wanted to make carrot cake, especially knowing that hers was to die for. I love the feeling when the oven warms up the room. So, with a glass of red wine in hand, we prepared dessert for my in-laws.
