Some of the coherence arises from the nature of our sources, which make an Athenian standpoint hard to avoid.That point was noticed by Sallust in the first century b.c.: As I reckon it, the actions of the Athenians were indeed vast and magnificent, but rather less substantial than report makes them.

Bouchon If you’ve been reading my blog over the past few months you’ll know I’m having a love affair with Thomas Keller’s gluten-free flour, Cup4Cup.Which is why I was super excited to hit his Vegas eatery for brunch, even though I was basically guaranteed to be left drooling over all of the pastries that I cannot eat.
I happily got my gluten-free eat on at these restaurants, and all of them were ah-mah-zing. I’m now wishing I could go back in time and remedy that situation because it was super fun times.
Rumor has it that Keller serves up gluten-free goodies in his restaurants, hence, his invention of Cup4Cup.
Sadly, they did not get that memo at the Bouchon in Las Vegas. Of course there’s one more way to stay completely gf while you’re enjoying the charms of Sin City.
