Citron et Vanille on Blogcritics – Thanks Lazaro
Citron et Vanille sur Blogcritics – Merci Lazaro
I just wanted to take the opportunity (hmm sounds like the Oscars) to thank Lazaro from the Lazaro Cooks blog for writing such a wonderful article about Citron et Vanille on Blogcritics and entitled “Inspiration: The Creative Wind Beneath our Culinary Wings“…and especially to include me in an article where he talks about The French Laundry! I feel incredibly flattered. You can read it here and you’ll see why I love Lazaro sensibility and approach to food and life.
I met Lazaro a few months ago while he just started his blog and through our exchanges we discovered we had many common points (points en commun as we say in French or atomes crochus), we had the same food reference as far as chefs and cuisine are concerned, even though he has a Puerto Rican descent, being completely different from mine, we speak the same “food” language. I do believe cooking is a way of expressing oneself such as the clothes we wear, or language we speak.
Lazaro is a fine writer with an elegant “plume” (feather), his words flow like silk, his vocabulary is full of nuances and subtleties and I love to read his blog, not only because of his descriptions but because of the beautiful recipes he presents focusing on aesthetic presentation, fine composition and creative ingredient combination. Check out his blog, I’m sure you’ll enjoy it as much as I do.
Last but not least, Lazaro is environmentally conscious and supports sustainable farming which is to my eyes one of the most important thing we all need to be aware of, as a foodie, chef, home-cooks, or as a matter anyone who “eats”, let’s say a simple “eater”. As humans we have come to a point of polluting our planet to an extent and now everyone suffers the consequences. I am proud that many French famous chefs have stopped serving ahi tuna and other endangered species in their restaurants as a way of fighting the problem and encouraging the public to stop its consumption.
As foodies (whatever that word means), we should all take one step to move into that direction and help Mother Earth.
Sure, wild fish tastes better than the farm raised one, but at what cost?
Merci, Merci et encore Merci!

Thank you for the kind post. I am so glad you liked the article. I think you are an amazing cook and a sweet friend. Hopefully we will draw lots of traffic to this amazing blog. One of the best I’ve read.
beautiful the article by lazaro!congrats!
Very nice congrats!~
Hey Silvie. I read the article. Lazaro is a good writer indeed with many sweet things to say about you…
Oh, and I love that he is eco-conscious!
Oh Congras! Heading over to have a read now.
In my view the art of cooking is an act of love. We all show love differently and at myriad levels. When I prepare a whole foods dinner for my grandchildren I see their future before me. The dinner is an act of compassion and understanding of that future.
And perhaps that is the simplicity after all – the gathered family around the hearth – a yearning for all things as they should be…
Hey, congratulations Silvia! You deserved it! Have a great weekend!
Congratulations Silvia! I enjoyed reading the well written article by Lazaro. =)
Congratulations Silvia. You deserve the publicity and your food is delicious, fresh and healthy. Lazaro described your food very well.
You both write brilliantly and I love your cooking relationship born of mutual respect and admiration. It is amazing how kindred spirits can pool in the blog world and whole new friendships take seed and grow and nurture. It is a whole lovely package with you both (I just found his blog!) that I am looking forward to visiting often!
I say merci to Lazaro too. If it had not been for him, I would have not met you and your great website. I second what Deana said above – you both write brilliantly. I look forward to reading more.
Congratulations! You deserve all the best! I enjoy your blog so thoroughly!
Oh my God, my mouth is absolutely watering =)
What a beautiful article he has written about his personal experience, and that you have been such an integral part of that = Bravo! It is wonderful to hear that the fruits of our labours do touch and influence others. I have started reading you since january of this year, and really enjoy your posts (I miss them because I forget to check my rss feeds and reader… would LOVE a subscribe by e-mail button here for me to get your new posts right in my mail box). But, anyway – I enjoy you a great deal, too.
