60: Thanksgiving '20; Pancakes In The Marais, Paris Local GOODfood+wine © Paige Donner

Celebrating 400 years of the Mayflower's landing on the shores of America is cause for celebration. To think all that has been accomplished these past 400 years. We have much to be grateful for. Please find in our show note on LocaFood.wine the short video of the Wampanoag Tribe entiteld, We Are Still Here. The tradition of fall harvest feasts actually were a native American tradition that we took from them... and eventually renamed Thanksgiving. And with that, I turn to our feature interview for this month's podcast: the author of Pancakes in Paris and the sequel, Let Them Eat Pancakes. Craig Carlson is a Parisian who opened the beloved Breakfast In America restaurants decades ago in Paris. When you Oh-So-Need a big breakfast of thick buttermilk pancakes drenched in maple syrup and melted butter this is where you go. And in the winters, they offer the bottomless cup of coffee and a slice of pie in the late afternoons. Craig and his partner, Julien Chameroy, speak to us this episode about his books and about being the most famous American pancake purveyor in Paris.
