Welcome to the NY Carey out of the City blog
From the Big Apple to the Alps Orchards!
Where can you find an abundance of Abundance?
In the French Alps of course!
Along with Tomme de Savoie, Tome des Bauges, Reblochon, Chevrotin, Beaufort, Raclette and Emmental de Savoie, Abundance is one of the cheeses that is made in the Rhone Alps region of France.
So when I heard about the 51ème Festival Mondial des Cultures du Monde de Chambéry, which translates to the 51st World Festival of World Cultures in Chambéry, I had to find out more.
For the past 50 years, dance troupes from over 200 countries have come to the Rhone-Alps region of France to perform traditional dances with live music accompaniment.
Many people know how good French wine is, but did you know France also has wonderful, award winning artisanal beer?
Join me out of the city & in the French Alps this week to discover artisanal beer at the Brasserie des Cimes in Aix les Bains!

8MB is proud to present a new segment that is both traditional and innovative. The first English speaking series that is for locals, expats and tourists. « Carey out of the City » is about a New Yorker who is exploring the wonderful region and culture of Savoyard!
Life here is different and there is no need to wake up early, but yet I still do. Why or in French, pour quoi?
I am a New Yorker in Haute Savoie.
It still happens by habit. After I wake up in the morning, I grab my coffee to-go cup, my sunglasses, my phone, my earphones and my dog. Before the first track of my playlist is over, I realize I can’t get my egg whites with spinach, tomato and feta. I can’t even get egg whites. I can’t even get salty food. Where is the bodega?
