Steven’s brother Marc has been living in Paris since 1999. He opened Bob’s Juice Bar on a whim, in 2006, when he noticed that France’s capital city was lacking in health food destinations. The veggie-focused café quickly gained a cult following and Marc expanded soon after with Bob’s Kitchen and Bob’s Bake Shop – each spot in a different arrondissement, spread out across the city.

There's now a mix of vegan and gluten-free options, traditional health food options as well as "not-particularly-healthy-but authentic comfort food" - for example, New York-style bagels! - His latest venture is a collaboration with every euro backpacker's favorite bookstore, Shakespeare and Company, providing goods for their café. What's his secret to success? Not acknowledging it. Marc is a self-professed "fanatic about quality" and is "hard-wired to feel like things are never as good as they should be, driven by the fear of failure". Lucky for those of us across the ocean, he has sent along a few of his favorite recipes to cure our cravings. 

 

ROASTED WHITE PEACHES

Ingredients:

  • 4 peaches
  • ½ lime
  • 6 Tb of sugar

Directions:

  • Preheat oven to 350ºF
  • Boil a pot of water
  • Prepare a bowl of ice water
  • Halve peaches and remove pits, then cut into wedges
  • Poach wedges for about 45 seconds then plunge into ice water and remove skin
  • In baking dish, combine wedges with sugar, juice of lime, and squeezed lime half
  • Bake for 10 to 15 minutes until bubbly

Serve warm or chilled.

 

 

WATERMELON JUICE

Ingredients:

  • 30 ounces of watermelon
  • 6 raspberries

Directions:

  • Blend everything together
  • Serve cold 

Note: "I usually refrigerate the watermelon before hand but you can also serve over ice.  For a sweeter less-smoothie-like version, you can strain the juice to remove fiber." - Marc
