and yes, Lyon was....

legendary. Nothing like good wine, good food, and good friends in a Lyonnais bouchon.

i'm lame

So between organizing an international AIDS conference, and going to weddings, I have been lame in giving you all updates. 'The Cooking Odyssey' back in the US is being happily received by television audiences, the family is doing well, and to show you how busy I am, I haven't experimented with any recipes in over a month (perhaps two).

I did eat extremely well in Paris however two weekends ago when I went for a friend's wedding. Also, I'm convinced the epicentre of the universe is Le Marais (after my village).

Please do follow our work at the 6th IAS Conference on HIV Pathogenesis, Treatment and Prevention (IAS 2011) - which begins in Rome, Italy this Sunday. Lot's of exciting work being presented on ARV-based interventions (i.e. PrEP), elimination of mother-to-child-transmission, and of course - HIV cure research.
