December Food adventures in Strasbourg - a guest post from Janelle & Scott Gould - DistantFrancophile
Maison Kammerzell - Strasbourg - Restaurant review
My virtual friends, Janelle and Scott Gould from Melbourne, who run an interesting blog called DistantFrancophile were visiting Alsace recently and on their own accord went to explore one of the most ancient restaurants in France: Maison Kammerzell in Strasbourg, which has been operating since 1427 with further additions in 1467 and 1589, when three upper floors of timber panelling were added, resulting in the building we know today.
Their "signature dish" was invented 45 years ago by the Chef who is still running the show today, Guy-Pierre Baumann. He almost went to jail for what was looked at as a blasphemy on the traditional meat choucroute! So I won't steal the show and direct you to our Restaurant Review page where I have hosted their article! Bon appétit!
A number of our readers have expressed interest in contributing stories and photos to this blog.
We are now ready to accept them and publish the best ones.
We are mainly interested in stories about Paris and Provence at this stage, but we will eventually wander into Bordeaux and Burgundy.
We are also open to your suggestions: maybe there is a part of France that you would like us to feature...Let us know.
We cannot reward you with money, but here is a way to get some exposure as a writer or photographer or both.
We will from time to time recognize a particularly good contribution with a gift in a form of a good bottle of wine or a special French "something"
So get your e-pen and e-paper and write to us via our Contact page.
Hope to hear from you soon.
