Say no to Foie Gras!

Hi guys.NO-to-foiegrass-kerst-blog---gif (yeah, yeah…I’m still alive!)

A thousand time sorry for my lack of posts. I work hard on the new website to make sure that every article I’ve ever written can also be found again. The website will have a new concept to ensure the quality of the things I write. Most people are used to receive a message every day, but this time it will be more divided over the week. The release of the new website will be on the 1st of January 2015! 

Today I want to pay a bit of attention to animal suffering behind the French delicacy foie gras. Many people don’t know what a miserable life these animals have and how they are tortured. Also this year the shelves are full again and it’s an extra popular delicacy during Christmas season. Foie gras is a touchy subject because it’s (unfortunately) cultural heritage for the French. Please everyone, be aware of the product you buy, a Christmas spirit isn’t behind it.

Feel free to share this animation on your blog or social media if you want to spread the message!

38 Saint Louis, Paris

38 saint louisCheese, cheese, cheese. In Paris it’s all about cheese and we love it! 

I’m not taking about ordinary cheese – like the one you put on your sandwich. No, I’m talking about perfect cheese and everything around it. At 38 Saint Louis they have an enormous variety of flavors you didn’t knew they existed. They also sell a lot of seasonal cheeses. It may be that they don’t always have the cheese you’re looking for but don’t worry, they won’t let you down! There are always enough (yummy) choices ;)

It’s not just the cheese that I like about this shop. It’s also their little grocery part. They sell great olive oil and products like marmalade, stuffed tomatoes, pastes and fruit juices. Mmmm, all amazing products to buy for a picnic or a cheese plate. They have a lot more, but if I tell you everything there won’t be anything left for you to explore. I won’t ruin that feeling so…go go go!

Here’s the address, enjoy your cheese menu!

Last but not unimportant: unfortunately, they sell here Foie Gras. A French specialty which causes a lot of animal suffering. Despite the fact I like this little cheese store, I don’t want to contribute to the promotion of this terrible delicacy. Many tourists don’t know what suffering is behind those few bites that you take. So I ask you, please stick with the cheese and other delicious products and choose for products that are better for the nature and the health of our little geese friends ♥
