Still Not a Fan of Beets…Strange In-Flight Sandwich

Still Not a Fan of Beets…Strange In-Flight Sandwich

With apologies to the airline, I was really surprised by the flavors in the complimentary sandwich Air France served on a recent flight.

Chévre / Betterave  /Framboise

AKA

Goat Cheese / Beet / Raspberry

You heard me right – the dreaded beet in a sandwich meant for the general public. Curses!

It’s probably the only French cuisine I’ve ever tasted and disliked. I DO NOT LIKE BEETS. What a waste of the goat cheese and raspberries.

Read more about the beet problem here at I Hate Beets. There’s even a haiku. And surprisingly, lots of comments. Like politics at the moment, beets are a polarizing topic.

A Real Find in Cajun Country: Suire’s Grocery and Restaurant

Looking for lunch on a recent trek home from New Orleans, we took the long way along the coast and found a treasure (and I do mean treasure) in the backroads of southern Louisiana. Suire’s Grocery and Restaurant has been serving delicious Cajun food to hungry travelers, locals and hunters since 1976. It was magic: the food, the ambience and especially the people. The Grill-Meister and I were enchanted.
