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. One of the most beautiful place on earth and the birthplace of one of the craziest Frenchman ever, a short, brown-haired and short tempered guy called Napoleon Bonaparte. 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 ...

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 ...

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! ...

Be as deep as a Frenchie! Try this French & perfect dip!

My poor non-French people, Je sais je sais je sais... I know. It's been way too long since I last wrote you. "Pas de nouvelle, bonne nouvelle" as my French and perfect friends would say ? No news, good news? Well actually, yes! I've had two big treats on my cooking lists these last months : 300 recipes to write for my first cookbook AND a little croissant in the oven! I sent the last page of the book one hour before going to ...

Another round of rondiaux? Mardi Gras beignets!

My dear, poor, non-French people, Memory sucks. It's amazing to see how it can bring you to live and feel a moment in time that has been gone for ever... (Oui, I'm looking at you and your madeleines, Marcel...)But it's like drugs : you're very close to heaven, but never there yet. It's just a sad reminder that time has gone by, and will never come back again... And the worst is, sometimes memory fails you. Disappears. Big blackout as of yesterday and all ...

Get pot luck ! Cook POT AU FEU !

My poor non French people, Rain is pouring outside (oui, even in LA! ), and I suddenly have a metaphysical question. How is it that you might come with such an idea as « comfort food » ? Why is this concept absolutely non existant in my dear home country ?Does it mean that you think that food is most of the time uncomfortable ? And why are all elements of that very strange category always always always so calorie-rich ? My poor non French people… It’s time ...

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 ...

Convert to 180°C!

My poor, non French people, Here is a little promotion for 180°C, a French and perfect cooking magazine that has just been published. It's actually much more than a magazine: 188 pages, almost a book, with lots of recipes, stories, interviews, all about good food and good times. (and no ads inside, which means they are really free to write about everything...) I can't wait to try their "pasteis de nata"  recipe, my favorite portuguese dessert! Also, my humble French and perfect self writes here ...
