My blog is inspired by my time living in France from 2010-2011. I was working as an English teacher in a few French elementary schools, but my unofficial part-time job was eating anything and everything that I could get my hands on.
Every morning before I went to school, I would buy a demi-baguette and a pastry at one of the local bakeries. Every night, I would come home to the foyer (a residence hall where most of the English teachers lived) and tell everyone about my discoveries.
At one point, I think everyone got tired of hearing me gush over the bread, pastries and croissants. Or maybe they were just impressed by my staying power. I never got bored talking about macaron flavors or boulangeries. After a couple months of listening to me rave about French food, my friends told me that I should start a blog.
But at the time, I didn’t have a camera or a stable internet connection. So it wasn’t until I returned home a year later that I started Allez Le Food.
I think food is something that we can all share. It brings us closer and helps us connect at the most basic level. I hope you enjoy reading about my latest discoveries and cooking experiments, and that my blog inspires you to create food memories of your own.
