Passport Check

Tony Maws, chef-proprietor of Craigie on Main

Tony Maws’s recently expired passport easily falls open to the page covered with a French visa. “I was living and working there,” says the chef-proprietor of Craigie on Main  in Cambridge. “I had a six-month work visa, so I was like a French citizen. I paid taxes and had vacation and everything, ” he recalls of the time he spent in the kitchen of the one-star Michelin restaurant, Larivoire, about five miles upriver from Lyon center.  

These days, the demands of running his own restaurant tend to cut into his travel time, but Maws is working on filling out the pages of his current passport. He has fond memories of a trip to Marrakech and trekking into the Atlas Mountains. He and wife Karolyn spent their honeymoon in St. Martin (the French side, of course) and have vacationed in the Basque Country of Spain.
