Good news about Phil.
Glad he's focussing on his popular spoons!
Shame his site is still down though.

Phil is still making replica spoons (as Frenchman SARL), it is just the antique business that he has stopped. I am sure that he won't mind the Pernod pages being hosted here.

Would it be possible to include Artemis' translation of the old recipes in the Forum's FAQ?
It's an invaluable resource.
|Posted on Thursday, October 24, 2002 - 7:33 am: |
Bleh! I'd wanted to see his English translation of the historic recipes and the tour of the Pernod et Fils operations, I think they were.
If you, Absinthedrinker, could host them for a time, I'd muchly appreciate it!
If not him, who else is making spoons now?
|Posted on Thursday, October 24, 2002 - 3:01 am: |
Phil has stopped operating his site, he hasn't been selling items for a long time now and he had problems with his IP provider. If there are any parts of the site that anyone would like to see for historical reference I can host them.

Phil's site is still down, some two weeks later.
I guess that's a lot of travelling.
Any idea when he'll be back?

Thanks for the advice about Zimmer. Anyone know if I can find any Francois Guy around these parts?

Yup, don`t be stupid (or too much in a hurry)like me and don`t miss l'heure verte chez Peter !
|Posted on Monday, October 7, 2002 - 12:59 am: |
the un émile 45° was hand-delivered last night, straight off the route from pontarlier...the owner is very excited about having it on his drink menu and is the first in paris to serve(and eventually,sell bottles) un émile 45°... it coincided(not accidentally), with a b/w semi-nude photo shoot taking place at le zimmer after it closed, where ted happily volunteered as best-grip...the photographer will be putting out a book of his work (in french and portuguese; hopefully an english version) all taken at this location, with commentary by benoît noël...
as as always, if it can be arranged, you are welcome for l'heure verte, chez moi...just send me an e-mail...
right now i have to go, as ted is whipping up alligator gumbo in an early-morning frenzy, before catching the plane back to NOLA...

There is a cafe/bistro called Zimmer http://www.lezimmer.com/ in Place du Chatelet which will shortly be taking delivery of Un Emile 45, Peter will no doubt fill you in when he recovers from his drive back from Pontarlier. The two flea markets worth a visit are St Ouen and Vanves in the North and South, respectively. The former is really more boutiques than a true flea market and you won't get bargains. The second is a street market and you will usually find common spoons or glasses there. Prices can vary dramatically between sellers, so take care.
Phil is currently on the road but I'll let him know that his site is down.
|Posted on Monday, October 7, 2002 - 12:01 am: |
could be because Phil is away now.
|Posted on Sunday, October 6, 2002 - 11:16 pm: |
A bit out of topic but is http://www.frenchmanltd.com/ still online ? It`s not working right now.

Leaving for Paris next week, and was wondering if anyone has some tips on absinthe stops (i.e. stores that sell any of the new breed, memorablia, antiques or simply repros or even historic stops).
I remember long, long ago someone posted some stores when Oxygenee first appeared.
Any suggestions are greatly appreciated.
