Leunig’s Bistro, Burlington

Since I’m an official Monpelierite and no longer a Burlingtonian, it had been a while since I’d enjoyed dinner at Leunig’s on Church Street.

Hello, Old Friend…

I’ve missed you, Drunk on Food. It’s been a while since my last post, but I’m back in the swing of things now and ready to blog the crap out of the blogosphere.

Since my last post, a lot has happened. New restaurants and an amazing new bar (The Three Penny Taproom) have opened up around me in my little Capital City. I’ve done boatloads of cooking at home, and feel confident that I mastered both my great grandmother’s stuffing recipe and the best chicken and biscuits ever. I’ve traveled to France and spent a week in Paris, eating, eating and eating. It took a trip across the Atlantic to fall in love with my two new favorite foods: morel mushrooms and pistachio eclairs. Délicieux!!!

So now I have some serious writing to do, and clearly, some serious eating. Can’t wait to get started!
