President Sarkozy Bans Cheese After Dinner

Yes, you read well: Nicolas Sarkozy has banned cheese from the menu at the Elysee Palace… You know how much we like cheese on the Sama Gazette, and maybe you remember our posts: Try Raclette For A Warming Winter Dinner (one of Max Dana favorite dishes) or French Cheese: Camembert, Brie, Roquefort, Chevre… illustrated by two great drawings by Pete Fowler. So when we read Sarkozy had banned cheese, we were chocked! The French President adheres to a ...


Inspiration to Action: People, NGOs to support!

Among the many, many new things we added to the new version of the Sama Gazette, there is a revamped version of En Route To Sudan (we will present it in a next post) but there is most of all a brand new section we are very proud of: Inspiration to Action. Here is the introduction to it: This page is dedicated to organizations and campaigns we support, and also to inspiring people (this list is by no means exhaustive, of course). They all do an amazing job ...


Try Raclette For A Warming Winter Dinner by R. Varolli

This is our second rendezvous: C’est la vie in France but this time (our first post was about Films Open French Wounds From Algeria) we have selected an article about food. As prood members of the Sama (formerly Epicurean) Fraternal Society, we enjoy good food and we were happy to read on the Huffington Post: Try Raclette For A Warming Winter Dinner by Regina Varolli. Some of you may wonder what is ‘raclette’, so here is an introduction by ...

Happy Thanksgiving and How to Cook Green Beans

Last year we posted about: Happy Thanksgiving and How to Cook a Turkey and many of you enjoyed the recipe by Sydny Carter published on AllRecipes.com. This year, forget the turkey, we will tell you how to cook green beans. Vegetables are healthy and are great to accompany the turkey as well as for vegetarians who can celebrate and enjoy the dinner too. We didn’t take the recipe from AllRecipes.com but we chose Simply Recipes instead. We mentioned ...


The Sama Gazette: First Anniversary!

Today is our first anniversary. The Sama Gazette was launched on July 28th, 2009: The Sama Gazette is now online… Time passes so quickly! During this first year, we shared with you what caught our attention, what we liked and the organizations and campaigns we support. Our first supporters are our valued Sama Readers who from the beginning of this great adventure, post comments, send emails and read us everyday. Many of them even actively support ...


Twitter Sunday: Favorites Tweets @chefludo

We are serious people at the Sama Gazette, but we are also proud members of the Sama Epicurean Fraternal Society. We like good food, good atmosphere and joie de vivre. Today, this Twitter Sunday is about French Chef Ludo Lefebvre. A pretty girl named Amélie, who ate at his restaurant, told us about him and his fabulous cuisine. Since then we follow @chefludo on Twitter and his tweets have the power to cheer us up! About Chef Ludo Lefebvre (read more on ...


PIXEL winebar in Brussels: pixels and wine

The PIXEL winebar opened in 2009 in Brussels, Belgium. As soon as we saw the photos on the website, we ‘geekly’ said: ‘This place is cool!’. You know, pixels remember us (by us I mean mostly me and Max Dana) our favorites video games from the NES. And wine, because we are proud members of the Sama Epicurean Fraternal Society and we appreciate drinking good wine -with moderation. We didn’t go there yet but our friends at ...


French Cheese: Camembert, Brie, Roquefort, Chevre…

It has been a long time since we wanted to talk about cheese, but we had other priorities. A few days ago, we engaged a conversation with artist Pete Fowler on Twitter (@themonsterist): he said he ‘had the best French cheese EVER at le bourchon Breton in spitalfields mkt’. As cheese-lovers, we didn’t miss the occasion to reply to him; that is when the ‘French cheese’ post came back as a priority. Here is for the full story ...


Why France is best place to live in world

That is the title of a post published on CNN: ‘Why France is best place to live in world’. Bindi Dupouy is Australian, she lives in Paris and she’s married to a French man. Most of the Sama Team members live in Paris and we were very happy to read that France was voted the best place in the world to live for the fifth year in a row by International Living magazine. Let’s find out the reasons exposed in CNN’s article by ...
