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 ...

Be French and perfect: drink APERITIF!

 My poor non-French people, If you don’t speak French and are planning to travel to la Belle France, there are a few sentences you need to master in order to really get into the French spirit. Of course I’m sure you know all about « Je t’aime » or « Deux croissants s’il vous plait », and even some more olé olé sentences like the chorus of this famous disco song some American tourists never fail to sing when they meet a French native – excuse ...

Oui! Oui! Oui! My own French and perfect Cookbook!

My dear poor non-French people, You know, I think my derrière is surrounded by pasta. Bordé de nouilles! If you don't speak my very poetic and surrealist native tongue, here is what I mean by that: I'm the luckiest French and perfect girl I know... When I started this crazy adventure of French and parfait, two years ago, I did not even dare to dream about it, and pourtant, here it is... I just wrote a cookbook. My own cookbook! And it's not a small one... 300 recipes! Trois cent! ...

French cooking 101: Béchamel

 My dear poor non French people, Did you know you could do magic with just a few ingredients ? I was always amazed, and still am, by all the wonders you can do with just three extremely basic things. Butter. Flour. Milk. You can make crepe. A pie dough. Or you can make the most traditional delicious warm sauce : béchamel. Béchamel is one of the obligatoire basics of French cooking. It's called a sauce mère, a mother sauce. It was invented at the same time ...

French cooking 101: Forget dressing, make a Vinaigrette!

My poor non-French people, At last I have the opportunity to, once again, change your life (and the destiny of your tastebuds), with just one little big news: French dressing is NOT like this at all (pas du tout!) Yes, I know, it says French, and even more appetizing "deluxe", but believe me, this is as French as a smiling waiter in Paris: it just doesn't exist. And anyway, just the idea of buying some pre-made sauce to put on a salad wants ...

Read it, bake it ! TEN Cookbooks I Love…

My dear, poor, non French people, Do you remember when it all started? That exact moment when you fell in the "cauldron of magic potion", as the French and perfect hero Obelix would say ? I fell in love with cooking with one book. "Desserts en bande dessinée" (Dessert recipes in comic books). My mom bought it one day and my boring wednesday afternoons (kids dind't go to school on Wedneday in France) and never-ending summer days were over. Whenever my brother and I didn't ...

Métro Bistrot Resto! Where to eat in Paris, 2e partie.

My dear, poor, non-French people, Here is another list for those of you who are lucky enough to go and visit Paris. Restaurants you can just decide to go at (almost) the last minute. They are actually my favorites : it's more about daily great food, places where you can escape the sometimes too grey Paris, and warm up life with friends, family, or just you and your glass of wine. Don't try to test them all (except if you're staying for weeks)... Paris is ...
