French food blogger creates magic in New York

Stephen Baker

One of the hottest food blogs, I'm told, is ChocolateandZucchini. My colleague Susann Rutledge went to meet the blogger in New York, and found a whole crowd of new friends--a blog experience every bit as magical as the perfect chocolate souffle. Susann's story:

Chocolate and Zucchini is written by the charming Clotilde Dusoulier, a twentysomething Parisienne who writes in English and has spent time in the States. I first learned about her through her freelance gig with NPR.

When she and her boyfriend, Maxence, visited NYC a few weeks ago, she arranged an open invitation get-together downtown at Otto. The event was like one colossal blind date with over 30 strangers showing up to meet Clotilde and each other. I think many of us expected to find at least a few weirdos in the bunch, and to only stay for one drink. Instead, most folks hung out for 3 hours, and a smaller group of us ended up staying for dinner.

At least half the crowd were bloggers (many food-related). Emails and urls were exchanged, and many of us are already arranging a potluck dinner later this month. A week after the event, I spent the day with two of my instant friends, one of whom blogs here.

I am looking for the article Too much money in the July 11 Newsweek, and am frustrated at not finding it.
