A good year and a good soup!

My dear, poor, non French people, Comment ça va? I'm so happy to write to you again after these terrible Christmas holidays. Oh, don't misunderstand me, I have loved going back to France to see my family and friends. But excusez-moi, there's too much good food there! After days and hours of family banquets, foie-gras get-togethers, chocolate éclairs snacks and other "you definitely should take the vol-au-vent AND the tête-de-veau: after all you never get it there", I am so glad to be ...

Remembrance of recipes past… Pain d’épice

My dear, poor, non French people, Remember the good old time when you spent hours next to the mailbox (the real one, not you average hotmail-yahoo-gmail electronic version) waiting for a letter of your dear chéri? And then reading it again and again trying to figure out what he actually meant by "I like soccer and you too"? Where are all those letters now? I wonder how kids today will have a reminder of their first love letters... That's what I thought a few ...

Cook Faisan like a real peasant!

 My dear, poor, non French people, Let me tell you: it's never funny to be the turkey of the stuffing. I guess that would be the litteral translation of "Etre le dindon de la farce", a popular French saying that means "being the laughing stock". Why do American people are so concerned about it ? The stuffing I mean. That what amazed me most last month as I was enjoying my first real Thanksgiving. Even a gourmet like me had never seen people fight over ...

Don’t be Crude ! Eat your Crudités

My poor non French people, It's with deep sadness that I must announce you that once again, you American people have it all wrong about food. Non, the Raw diet is not a Californian invention. It was discovered centuries ago by us, the Français. Eh oui ! That's what we call les Crudités. A proper lunch in a French and perfect household could never happen unless Crudités are first served. It's usually based on fresh vegetables and amazing vinaigrette.  The best example is the carottes râpées.   6 carrots 1 ...

RA-TA-TOUILLE

My poor non French people, On this hot and summery day in California, let me save you again with this gorgeous and healthy and (almost) vegan classic : la Ratatouille. RA-TA-TOUILLE Non, you don't have to be a rat chef from Hollywood to master it... It's actually one of the easiest dish to do. Even men cuisine it sometimes, alors...   4 zucchinis 1 Bell pepper 1 eggplant 1 can diced peeled tomatoes 7 ounces of bacon 1 onion 1 garlic clove, salt and pepper I was given the secret of the Parfaite ...
