A Broad Abroad
I'm a food writer and editor in Brooklyn.
In February 2017, I spent a month in the capital of gastronomy, Lyon, France and the capital of taste, Turin, Italy.
I met people who love food and live for food: pastry chefs, chocolate makers, winemakers, cooks, food studies students, activists and expert eaters, including a professional clown with a penchant for pralines.
I'm always looking for my next creative inspiration - and my next sandwich.
Lyon is famous for its bouchons with dishes like quenelles de brochet and Lyonnaise potatoes, amongst other regional delights. This was my ideal smaller city far from home.
Next time I'll bring an extra empty suitcase.
NOUN the art or science of good eating.
