Simply the largest oyster I have ever eaten


Before my return to Boston after enjoying friends and family in Paris, I went to eat one of my favorites before my return to Boston; “le plateau de fruit de mer”. Here it is… simply the largest oyster I have ever eaten! A “creuse” from Normandy of gigantesque proportion and taste. I did not spoil it with lemon or mignonette… I hate it whole, and it is no more!

YEi 2008: four New England winners

Four New England-based high-tech start-up projects are among the winners of the Young Entrepreneurs Initiative’s 2008 call for proposals.

Managed by the Office for Science and Technology of the French Embassy in the United States, the Young Entrepreneurs Initiative (YEi) helps US-based entrepreneurs set up business in France and leverage technical and financial resources in Europe and in the US. Successful candidates will benefit from organized business trips to France where they will meet key potential partners and will be able to validate the feasibility of their project.
