Meghalaya, Part 2: This Is the Kind of Travel Experience I Love the Most

Today on Food with Mark Bittman, the extremely artistic food stylist Barrett Washburne returns – you’ll hear about wasted plate space, giving props to prop stylists, and the tricks to styling brown foods. This is our fifth week featuring questions for Barrett; if you missed any of the previous four weeks, I urge you to go back and listen to him talk about supergluing turkeys and how much food is thrown out on a photo shoot.

So: In 2004, my dad and I took a trip just us two to Paris. I don’t remember a ton, because my memory is pitiful, but I remember the apartment we stayed in, I remember — in that apartment — watching a very young Barack Obama speak at the Democratic National Convention, and I remember my favorite meal, which was at one of Alain Ducasse’s restaurants (one of the more casual ones). It was wonderful, and memorable.
