Gateau au yaourt with a twist

I love Gâteau au yaourt, It's the easiest and most delicious cake, perfect to make at the last minute with what is left in the fridge or in the pantry -and at home, there's always eggs, flour, oil, sugar, and... yogurt somewhere. The first cake you learn to make when you're French - I can definitely see Madame Turpin teaching us at school. It's so easy ! You usually make it straight with a "pot de yaourt", a store bought yogurt that is ...

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 ...

Gluten Free, No Fat and 100% French: vive le macaron!

My poor non-French people, Valentine's day is around the corner and I am sad again. Not that I have no Valentine to dream about (merci ça va, j'ai tout ce qui me faut, I have all I need thank you!), but by the amount of marketing campaigns or other bad chocolate candies it produces all around me in America. L'amour n'est pas à vendre, messieurs! Love canot be sold, and even less so with bad quality candies! I've never liked la Saint Valentin, (why celebrate ...

Be tongue and chic! Make Langues de chats!

My dear, poor, non French people, Those of you who know me "pour de vrai", for real, all know it for sure: I can never hold my tongue. Tenir sa langue was  one of the hardest task at school for me, even more than any athletic activities, although I was always the number one worst athlete wherever I went (yes, some teachers thought I was running backwards to break the school records of worst time at the traditional winter race). My ...

Bake basque and feel better! Gâteau basque

My poor non French people, Are you one of these strange persons who always fantasize about going back to their childhood, "back to the future" way? I thought I wasn't. I'm actually living with someone who is part of this weird crowd, obsessed by buying toys you had when you were a kid, or the smell of a perfume that's "exactly as this particular glue I used at kindergarten". I don't consider myself nostalgic of the past, I will never say ...

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 ...

Salt and sablés, sandy cookies à la Frenchie!

My dear non-French people, Forget about cookies. They are so American ! And actually, French people are better at making them... Oui oui, it's true ! That was basically the point of a very popular ad when I was a kid. This poor American girl was calling her parents to tell them the cookies she was eating in France were almost as good as her mom's... We loved the idea so much that we would always repeat the last sentence "Poor Kate, alone in France!"... Now ...

Be fine in your finances! Make some Financiers!

My dear, poor, non-French people, No chichi between us : I won't put on airs, and tell you the truth just as it is... The sentence you will hear the most in any French conversation right now is not "qu'est ce qu'on mange" (what are we having for lunch) or "où est mon carré Hermes?" (where is my Hermes scarf)... Ok, it might be "qu'est ce qu'on mange", because yes, we French and perfect people are a little obsessed with food, and always will. But ...
