Have you ever wondered what it would be like to fulfill the dream of living in an exotic foreign country and achieving fame for what you do?
Well, I did that. I spent four years living in Paris, France. For two and a half of those years, I was the proprietor and chef of my very own restaurant. Just like in the movies — there I was: Sharon Morgan… American expatriate — enmeshed in French culture, living out my dreams.
The name of my establishment was Bojangles, in honor of Bill “Bojangles” Robinson, one of America’s most noteworthy African American entertainers. Our 50-seat enclave, located in the 9th arrondissement of Montmartre, nestled in the shadow of la Basilique du Sacré-Cœur.
Perhaps owning a restaurant — in Paris or somewhere else, is your dream. Maybe not. In any case, even though my adventure as a restaurateur is over and not something I plan to ever repeat, I still lay claim to being a fine cook and my parties are still in great demand. I guess you could say I put Paris in a pot and brought it home!
On this website, you will find recipes for the dishes I cooked at Bojangles. I urge you to buy my book so you can get the whole story of my amazing adventure.
