Thanksgiving à la parisienne
Happy Thanksgiving to our friends and families! We celebrated today at the Le Saint-Martin on Rue Louis Blanc in the 10th arrondissement with a traditional dinner of carrot soup, turkey, stuffing, green beans, mashed potatoes, butternut squash, cranberry sauce, pumpkin bread, and pie. Not surprisingly, we were not the only Americans there! Enjoying Thanksgiving abroad has been the topic of much American writing over the past decades. This New York Times article on Thanksgivings abroad describes Art Buchwald's famous column on "Le Grande Thanksgiving" or le Jour de Merci Donnant.
