Stop the gachis! Eat some hachis!

My dear, poor, non French people, I'm so sorry. Désolée, vraiment. But once again, I have to tell you that we French people are superior... You know me, I don't like to brag... It's not my fault if French people always know better! Take recycling for example. I find it funny to see all the media attention nowadays on waste and how to not put everything in the garbage bin. Rien de nouveau sous le soleil! (Nothing's new under the sun):  French cooks have been doing ...

French and perfect restaurants in Paris

My dear, poor, non-French people, I know some of you can feel a bit lost in Paris, so here are my favorite restaurants there... Of course, it's not a complete list, there are so many places I like to go! No rankings, they are all good and very different, try them and tell me. Just allow me one piece of advice : don't try to test them all (except if you're staying for weeks)... Paris is all about walking and discovering : don't turn into ...

Un bonjour de Lyon: Salad for you my friends!

My dear, poor, non French people, Ever thought there could be magic in a salad? I mean not in that terrible all-washed no-cheese no-croutons no-life "Iceberg" you've been looking at every day at noon, now that you've decided you are going to lose the few pounds that separate you from being "the real you" (or may I say, the real boring you?).   I'm talking vraie salade. I myself used to hate it. As a kid we would only eat salad after the entree, with a ...

Remembrance of recipes past… Pain d’épice

My dear, poor, non French people, Remember the good old time when you spent hours next to the mailbox (the real one, not you average hotmail-yahoo-gmail electronic version) waiting for a letter of your dear chéri? And then reading it again and again trying to figure out what he actually meant by "I like soccer and you too"? Where are all those letters now? I wonder how kids today will have a reminder of their first love letters... That's what I thought a few ...

Cook Faisan like a real peasant!

 My dear, poor, non French people, Let me tell you: it's never funny to be the turkey of the stuffing. I guess that would be the litteral translation of "Etre le dindon de la farce", a popular French saying that means "being the laughing stock". Why do American people are so concerned about it ? The stuffing I mean. That what amazed me most last month as I was enjoying my first real Thanksgiving. Even a gourmet like me had never seen people fight over ...

Chaud Cacao! Or the French and perfect Chocolate cake

Non non non les amis! Pas seulement!   What she needs is also a recipe for an easy, festive and délicieux chocolate cake.    Un gâteau au chocolat, oui madame!   The one you can decide to bake from scratch at the last minute to celebrate a sister’s birthday, impress a mother in law, ...

Be a good poire! Teach your pears how to swim in wine!

My dear, poor, non-French people, Let me be a good pear today, or "Une bonne poire": this is how my French friends call someone who’s always helping everybody, even if people are taking advantage of it.  It’s nice, at least it’s much better than being “une vraie dinde”, “a real turkey”, which is how we call people who are stupid and brainfree, I would say… Anyway, after all your stomach has suffered last Thanksgiving, I’m sure you’ll love this delicious and ...

A magic soup just for you

My poor non-French people, I guess you all know now that "French women don't get fat". Mireille Guiliano, who I was lucky to meet a few years ago and interview her for a profile of her I directed for French TV, has explained to the whole world the basics of the French and perfect silhouette: eat everything, not too much, enjoy it but pay attention, and when you've forgotten all the rules, try and detox with a good leeks soup. She's totally right, ...

Be Chic! Cook Grilled Chicon!

My dear, poor, non-French people, Let me tell you one thing. "La vie, c'est de la m...", as my grande amie Maha always says. Life is a bitch. You never get exactly what you wish for, and alway miss what you don't have. Take me for example. I live in California, where the weather is 600 times better now than the rainy foggy Paris in November.  And what do I dream of ? Cobb Salad on Malibu Beach ? Pas de chemin Joseph (I guess that's ...
