Off to The Principality of Monaco…

(view of yacht yard from the Palace courtyard, Nov. ’07)

today to eat, drink, shop and buy a yacht for 8 days!!

Okay, not really to buy a yacht but I will be enjoying thoroughly and soaking up all the millionaire and billionaire culture. Maybe a little of it will rub off on me!

I’m really excited about this trip because I’m going as part vacay, part journalist. That mean’s I’ll be doing some media related *work* reviewing resto’s, interviewing chefs, etc.. in Nice, Cannes, St. Tropez, Portafino, Italy and Monte Carlo, of course.

The BIG cajuna will be, get this… I’ll be breaking bread and interviewing the most MICHELINstarred chef in the world! This guy has 25! Yes VENTICINCO stars and I”m eating at his resto!

Do you know what the means!?! My ante just went up!

I’ll be eating at both YOSHI and The Restaurant Joel Robuchon (*2 stars*). I shall sit there and try not to drool. Cameras will be rollin’, so you all will get to see some incredible footage of the whole experience!

Changing of the Guard at the Prince’s Palace will happen on Sunday and yes caught on tape. I had to get written permission from the Prince’s security office to get coverage! How prestigious, he is.

Look forward to a 3 part series of our awesome trip in April! Loads of pictures, a fully produced video and some orgasmic food! I may even do a quick write up while I’m there! If not, see you in April!

Maybe this time, I’ll gamble at Monte Carlo and actually enter Hotel de Paris as I was not allowed in last time!

The rich, I swear….

  1. ummm…wait. so i knew u were going to monaco right…but didn’t know u got to go to France, Italy AND St.Tropez on top of it. GIRL i think i’ve found a new career…CHEF! LOL! Wait let me just stay in my lane and let you run yours.

    You get to eat at fab restos, do reviews AND meet top chefs. AMAZING! I think i’m gonna hide in your suitcase…oh wait i will next time…i still have some pounds to shed so i wouldn’t fit quite yet…  😉

    i’m so happy for you…you live a charmed life. I am looking forward to the pics and the video…fun fun!  You have a wonderful family.  Praying you return to us ATLiens safely. Bring me back a key chain darn it!  Smooches!!

  2. I’m incredibly jealous you get to interview Mr. Robuchon! I have his cookbook at work, it’s very detailed oriented.

  3. That is so big time. You are such a jet setter. Hope you brought pumps to make the right impression (which you would do in bare feet as well:)…)

  4. Have I told you how I’m so thrilled for you?  Girl you are making moves.  Oh – that apron – I’m so stealing.

  5. Oh I am sick to my stomach with jealousy. I am such a Eurofile…. And Monaco!!! I only spent a few hours there but oh soooo lovely.

  6. Awesome Bren!!! I just got back from Italy this week, and had a fabulous time – part work part play! – but when it has to do with food, in my mind it is ALWAYS play! 🙂

    Have a great time on your trip and I can’t wait to hear about your adventures!

  7. THANKS ALL FOR THE WELL WISHES, STOMACH ACHES OF JEALOUSY! Okay for real it was all that! Thanks for reading and hopefully you’re starting to read the 3 part series on the trip! 🙂 a bientot!
