What Julia Child’s Soup Taught Me About Being an Expat in Paris
My first stop at the Place Monge market in Paris is always the smallest booth on the corner, next to the Metro escalator. The stand is filled with fresh dill, basil, rosemary, and thyme waiting to be wrapped in brown paper, and rows of fresh eggs waiting to be sold, with the largest boxes boasting seasonal French produce, from fresh garlic to radishes to beets. The line grows quickly — this is the first stop for all my neighbors, too — but it’s worth the wait.
