French onion soup, Soupe à l’oignon recipe

One of the most famous soups in French cuisine, this grated cheese and onion soup is supposed to be a great way to fight a bad hangover! Discover how it is a tradition for weddings in France and how it was invented by a French king in my new video! I had a lot of fun making the video with my friend Su.

Corsican gratin: Zucchini and goat cheese

My poor non French people If there is a place in France where people are crazy proud and the landscapes are crazy beautiful, it's in crazy Cosica.

So here is a crazy easy  (and incredibly delicious) recipe in honor of this French and perfect island! This vegetarian dish is inspired by Corsican cuisine, where zucchini are often ...

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?

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 ...

Gorge on Gougères! C’est l’apéro!

 My poor non French people, Forget about happy hour ! (does it mean that the 23 other hours you'll spend today have to be sad?)! Be French and perfect, and jump right into one of the best moment of a meal in France: l'apéritif. The French love this time right before lunch or dinner so much that "l'apéro" is sometimes more like a meal in itself: you eat so much "hors d'oeuvres" that you're not hungry enough to pursue with the meal! It's a great ...

Bite a gentleman! Bake a croque-monsieur !

My dear, poor, non-French people, When is the last time you bit a gentleman? I did it last week to tell you the truth, and always love it. Oui oui, in France, it's very common. It's so regressive... Of course you know that  "Croque Monsieur", a French classic ,  litteraly means "Bite a gentleman". This sandwich à la française can be found in any café or brasserie in Paris... And is a regular at a French and perfect home. My mom loved to cook it on sunday ...

Chef Ludo loves Mimolette!

French and perfect chef Ludo Lefebvre is a foodie celebrity now, and I love that! I'm glad to see a Frenchman representing goodfood with smile and energy, and the way he plays with the character of the French "arrogant" chef. And he shows that French food is not about stiff-necked pointy nose old guys telling you what to eat and how... So I was very happy to meet him for the first time at the Grand Fooding Crush Paris-LA. Loved how he spoke about ...

Lafayette! Come back and save the mimolette!

My poor, non-French people, It's a tragedy, here in les Etats-Unis. The very serious Agence France Presse, the oldest news agency in the world, sent a wire about it. Le Parisien, Le Figaro, Ouest France, all very serious newspapers, wrote stories... Even TF1, the main French network (for which I used to be a reporter when I was in France) shares the big news on its website. The mimolette can't be bought in the US anymore. Yes, you read me well. La mimolette, la boule de Lille, ...

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 ...
