You have all been so splendid in your responses to my queries that I'm imposing on your good will once again. As i've mentioned we are going to be cooking a lot during our two weeks in Paris. I've already gathered that we'll be eating heaps of cepes, sometimes just sauteed in beurre cru baratté à l’ancienne or Bordier. What are the outstanding varieties of pears and apples right now? The best cabbages I should have my eye out for? Any outstanding variety of any fruit or vegetable that you would like to recommend?
As an example, if you were coming to San Francisco in the fall I'd advise you to buy as many Warren pears, preferably from Frog Hollow Farm, as you could carry home. What are your equivalents?
Counting the days (3) until we're there.
