I found myself in the little country of Luxembourg recently on my way to Milan. I spent four days there with some fun commitments to cook at the U.S. Embassy for the State Department. The embassy seemed to be the most relaxed embassy ever. In fact, the whole country seemed very mellow. The city of Luxembourg is very beautiful, surrounded by fortresses and canyons, naturally defended by geography on three sides. The food scene is rich in Michelin stars, with a nice little café culture in the City Center. I stayed at the Hotel Parc Belair, which sits on a beautiful public park that is vibrant, with kids running around and people doing healthy stuff like running and walking.
