Let me preface this post by saying that my colleagues and I refer to what follows as an entry on the “wall of woes.” Among my favorite previous wall of woes from colleagues include It was the worst $600 lunch of my life, Why is secondi always so disappointing? and Spago, again? So here’s my latest entry: I’ve been holed up in a b&b in La Clape for the past 24 hours after wretched food poisoning from a Michelin one star. Last night Madame D brought me down a little tray of toast, beurre and proprietary honey along with a cup of chamomile tea. I’ve been sleeping it off in this cozy bed, beneath a blue wooden ceiling with dolphins stenciled on the walls:

  1. Any chance we can find out the name of this lovely B&B? Hope you are feeling better. Lovely post, despite your unfortunate encounter with food gone bad or someone’s careless hand.

    All best,


  2. Sounds like a crazy time – was anything wonderful? What was the trip for? When will we hear ALL the details?
