“Paris”, Hemingway once said, “is a moveable feast.” And while there are certainly plenty of wonderful restaurants in Paris, such as Ducasse and Le Meurice, when Barry and I go to Paris we love eating at the smaller cafes and bistros.
One of Barry's favorite cafe foods is the Croque Monsieur – a ham and cheese sandwich. But this is no ordinary ham and cheese sandwich, this is Paris, after all. The French add a creamy béchamel sauce to the ham and cheese inside, then they grate Gruyere cheese on the top, and place the sandwich in a broiler until the exterior is crusty and bubbling. It's an explosion of flavors in your mouth!
So take a trip with me to the Left Bank, and try this delicious Parisian specialty, the Croque Monsieur. - Debbie
