That's me walking the Red Carpet at the 2004 Cannes Film Festival with Brian and Hernan. We are all part of the culinary team at the Cannes Film Festival's American Pavilion.


Bonjour de France et Bienvenue a Mes Amusants!

Bonjour mes amis! A year and a half ago I traded my keyboard for a cutting board and haven't looked back. Life has been amazing ever since. Hard, hard, hard beyond description, painful, humiliating, lonely, humbling, overwhelming and yet simultaneously heart-warming, joyous, exhilarating... Advice is easy to give, but following one's own is near impossible… I'd love nothing more than to tell you all to throw caution to the wind and follow your heart but we are all on our own journey, in our own time... So take your e-ticket (anyone remember these from Disneyland 30-some years ago?) and please join me on my culinary journey through France. You'll have a front row seat in a French kitchen so fasten your aprons and let's get cooking! Experience the highs and lows, the cuts and burns, the rants and raves, the potatoes and pomme de terres, the fish guts and real nuts... Please keep your notes coming! It is what gets me through the days when I burn everything and cut my fingers and the chef is yelling at me...and on and on... Merci et bisous! xoxo Laura (May 2004)

UPDATE (Dec 2004): I have been having FTP issues lately! My ISP is blaming my FTP software and the FTP software is blaming my DNS company and since no one can seem to figure out what is going on so...... “My Musings” have been relocated to this thing called a “blog” which is some ridiculous techie word for a newfangled web site called a web log. As long as I can post my updates about life in France, they can call it a pickle for all I care. Please click here to go to my new web site, er... I mean BLOG! à bientôt, Laura
