This week’s FriendsEAT’s Favorite is David Santori, the blogger behind Frenchie and the Yankee. David has one foot in France and the other in the US, something we consider a great culinary position. He’s originally from the Loire, and to our benefit, he spreads French culinary knowledge on his blog. He is currently living in Boston, so if you ever need restaurant recommendations, you know who to ask. Want to get to know him better? Read on:
FriendsEAT: How would you describe yourself?
David Santori: Food Blogger with a French Flair.
FE: What’s the best meal you’ve had recently and where did you have it?
DS: The last best meal I’ve had was 2 weeks ago at the Market Restaurant in Gloucester, USA, near my house. They only use local, fresh, and seasonal ingredients and their menu changes daily. It’s a surprise every time you go.
FE: What’s the most exotic food you’ve ever tried?
DS: During a trip to Singapore, I got to try so many different varieties of food, it was quite spectacular. Nepalese food that I tried for the first time there still lingers in my mind as the perfect discovery of a culture and flavors I was not exposed to before, which made it very exotic.
FE: Where do you live?
DS: Boston, USA
FE: Share with us an insider tip for your city!
DS: Boston is probably one of the most European city in the U.S. It is full of interesting food shops and boutiques that make it so unique. My 2 local gems as a European always looking for a taste of home in the U.S. is the Formaggio with their outstanding selection of cheeses and meats. And Tatte Bakery and Cafe because you won’t find anything better in Boston.
FE: What’s your favorite thing about FriendsEAT?
DS: The Recipes and Photos part of the site. It makes it very easy to browse and can give plenty of inspiration and ideas. It makes sharing that much more simpler on the site.
FE: Anything else you’d like the FriendsEAT community to know about you?
DS: Frenchie and the Yankee is about food but not solely about food. It is food with a side of travel experiences, cultural exchanges and visual musings. An adventure, a bite, or a flavor to share with friends, family and readers, Frenchie and the Yankee imparts an experience.”
