Bangkok, Thailand: Thai home cooking?


Question: is there any particular link between The Thai and the eggs? In a popular area without trends or tourists I‘ve first noticed the « thing » . Rewind: I come back, look with a culinary attention, bissfully smile at the unruffled pedlar. Original and unheard and graphic: THE eggs kebab! Then I go on with the Siam Paragon delicatessen, lost in the huge eggs department. Pisctachio green, pink Schiaparelli, flesh-coloured giants ou mottled Xsmall ones… of many different birds species. I very near have indigestion and « The Birds » of Hichcock! Pause: no more eggs for… Any clue? Ten years ago, the impromptu visit of a cave with prehitorical draws on a really small southern Kho (Kho means island). Tall bamboo schaffolding to reach the nests.

Fortnum & Mason, London

To all of you : Enjoy your trip !


Tradition tradition! This establishment has been in Piccadilly since 1707. Comparable to Hédiard (in Paris), this store is specialized in teas and cakes. Cakes are not my cup of tea, but I really like teas, mostly green ones. And those meticulous packaging with an English granny flavor are absolutely delicious. A small walk between teas shelves gives some ideas of greedy gifts to devour with eyes first… Between two cakes: a La Prairie beauty break? Or having a drink at the wine bar… Proust’s Madeleine.
