Kale and Camembert pie, a French and American story!

My poor non-French people, It is a hard job to be a French and perfect lady in America. Not only must you celebrate 4th of July but you also have to celebrate Bastille day 10 days later. Quoi? Having great food with friends and family while watching at fireworks and drinking rosé, again!!!! Here is a recipe I created just for both occasion, with a 100% American ingredient, Kale (Kale doesn't exist in France, it is just starting there) and a 100% French ingredient... Camembert ...

Be NICE to yourself! Make a NICOISE salad !

My poor non French people There it comes again. That dreadful moment. Spring is all around, flowers are budding, birds are chirping and you're...  scared. How are you going to make it? Why, why why,  did you have a second serving of hachis parmentier that one time at the Duponds? Can you really drop 50 pounds a day  by having just water (with sometimes a tablespoon of water in it and some sprinkled H2O on the top) for the next 45 days? Or should ...

A soup for Spring! Asperges au fromage de chèvre

My poor non French people, How is your souping going so far? I've spent the last days preparing soup every night and can't seem to get tired of it. The whole great idea about it is you can wait for the seaons to surprise you : new ingredients mean new flavours, new colours and... new recipes. Spring is great for many things, and one of its first main great perk is this little jewel that is called asparagus. Comes perfectly when you need it! ...

What soup Doc? Stinging nettle!

My poor non-French people, Sometimes I  wish I was a witch. I often think of these poor ladies, in the middle ages, who were just trying to be a little different, a little freer, and would occasionnally put in  they caldron an herb or two they would have found while walking in the forest. Do you sometimes think of how we got to know what was good to eat or not? Who tried chanterelle first? Is it the same person who took ...

STOP JUICING! TRY SOUPING!

My poor non-French people, Please stop all your juicing right now. As the French say, you can't live only of love and fresh water, and I'm sure deep down you know that nobody can really live only on fresh juice either. Of course it's great to believe that there's an easy solution to everything, and that engulfing gallons of sweet liquid will allow you to stay slim, fit, and never get old. But as much as there's no prince charming (except my dear French ...

Pack a Paques Lunch for Easter! PATE DE PAQUES

My poor non-French people, Let me confess a little thing, just between you and me, entre nous. I'm not French and perfect. Ok, I'm French, and most of the time, as most of us do, I just wish I was perfect. But I'm trying! And you know, as I've learned here in the US, "Fake it until you make it", so let's pretend I actually have absolutely no defect, a rocking body and a wonderful, easy nature. Ho, and also, that my photos ...

Oh Mon Porc!!! Why Rillettes are the Best

My dear, poor, non-French people, If there's anything you have to learn from me and about French food, it's this beautiful French saying: "Tout est bon dans le cochon". Yes, everything is good in the pig (and I'm talking about the animal, right, not these filthy disgusting persons who are often sadly compared to this beautiful and generous animal)... Most recipes coming from parts of this animal are simply delicious, and as the saying says, every part of the pork is good to ...

Gluten Free, No Fat and 100% French: vive le macaron!

My poor non-French people, Valentine's day is around the corner and I am sad again. Not that I have no Valentine to dream about (merci ça va, j'ai tout ce qui me faut, I have all I need thank you!), but by the amount of marketing campaigns or other bad chocolate candies it produces all around me in America. L'amour n'est pas à vendre, messieurs! Love canot be sold, and even less so with bad quality candies! I've never liked la Saint Valentin, (why celebrate ...
