Rue des Cinq Diamants - le chef



le chef


On rue de la Butte aux Cailles, the chefs and cooks from
various restaurants gather outside to chat,
have a smoke, and get ready for the busy lunch crowd. 


I have seen this same chef on three trips
and will be taking a photo to him in a few weeks. 


I wonder what he will be serving that day...

Hello Genie:
You have caught this chef in a wonderfully relaxed pose. We are certain that he will be delighted, and perhaps a little surprised, with his picture.

Perhaps he is measuring the quantity of truffles to add to his risotto.

What a nice photo. He is sitting there so relaxed. I wonder too what he is talking about.

M said...

Fabulous candid portrait! I hope he is impressed with your photo and serves you a delicacy! Bon appétit!

Somehow he doesn't look French. I don't know why but I trust that he's a good cook!

I bet he has been going to the same barber since 1960...Oh dear, that wasn't nice! You did catch him relaxing!

Believe me it was 'this......big'!!! Lovely relaxed moment captured Genie. Lucky you having another trip to look forward to. I so wish Perth wasn't so far away from everywhere.

Imagine what a job it is to cook for people all day! I'd be out relaxing with a cigarette if I had to do that all day too! He deserves the break! :)

I hope you will show us what you ordered.

Three weeks! Lucky you. This should be a good time of year to be there. Enjoy!

Joe, this chef probably could whip up a mean risotto but this area of Paris is a bit more down to earth preparing very good but more of home cooking. They do have some great French Basque dishes. I always get a salad which comes in a stainless steel mixing bowl - very large for about 9Euros! This is a place for families, students, locals. It is not exactly a tourist destination and you may share a table as they fill to overflowing at lunch.

I am counting the days until I return.

Bises,
Genie
