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 ...

Jean-François Piège loves mimolette!

French and perfect Jean-François Piège is the young chef everybody talks about. When he opened his flagship restaurant, Thoumieux, in Paris two years ago, he won two Michelin stars right away... I was honored to meet him and interview him at Le Grand Fooding Crush Paris-LA, and he was kind enough to support the mimolette fight, AND give us an idea as to how to use it in a dish. Hope you'll like it! Merci!   (and remember... Save the mimolette!)

How green was my tomate…

My dear non French people,   Let me confess. Last week, at the supermarket, I fell in love. They were standing in front of me, big, confident, and generous… And, I must say, so sexy. Really, don’t you adore those amazing green tomatoes ?   What could I do with them ? As I went back to my car, of course I thought of Fried Green Tomatoes (specially the "parking lot Madness" scene, my favorite part of the movie) Mais quoi… I can't lower myself to cook an ...

Beet it ! Rave it ! Have some Betterave !

My poor non French people, It's time for me to tell you about the French jewel of our earth : Beets. They are a basics of our daily culinary bliss, and even saved us from the evil Britts when Napoleon discovered that sugar could be produced out of it.  Yes, that's how we survived from the wicked blocade imposed by those tea-drinkers and almost didn't lose at Waterloo. Merci Napo ! For me la betterave is above all the smell of my grand-mothers's kitchen in ...
