Clap your hands for Clafoutis!

My dear, poor, non-French people, Here is a chance for you all to learn some of my beautiful native language. Want to say Summer in French? It’s very easy. Repeat after me. Cla-fou-tis. Ok, Clafoutis  does not exactly mean summer, (actually, in ancient French in means nailed!) but for most of my French and perfect friends, it's a synonym. Just hearing the word instantly takes me a few years ago, to the garden of my childhood home, back there in Loir-et-Cher. Summer is on, my brother ...

Go yogurt! Bake a French and perfect cake!

My dear, poor, non-French people, Forget about all the "life is like a box of chocolate" thing. This is absolutely nonsense for a French girl. You always know what you're gonna get with a box of chocolate! Du plaisir!  Pleasure! And maybe a little extra pounds... but pleasure mostly! So let me tell you how life works... La vie, c'est aussi simple qu'un pot de yaourt. Oui oui! Life is very easy. It's like a tub of yogurt. Ok, I'm not sure you'll find this French saying anywhere outside of this ...

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 ...

Let them eat (pineapple) cake!

My dear, poor, non-French people, As a good, French and perfect girl, I went back home for Christmas this year. I wanted to see my family and friends, eat some real good French food of course, but this time I also thought I was on a mission: I had to crack the French and perfect women code for you guys... What makes us so special? I'm still amazed at the number of books and movies on the subject. So I spent a few days ...

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 ...

Chaud Cacao! Or the French and perfect Chocolate cake

Be a good poire! Teach your pears how to swim in wine!

My dear, poor, non-French people, Let me be a good pear today, or "Une bonne poire": this is how my French friends call someone who’s always helping everybody, even if people are taking advantage of it.  It’s nice, at least it’s much better than being “une vraie dinde”, “a real turkey”, which is how we call people who are stupid and brainfree, I would say… Anyway, after all your stomach has suffered last Thanksgiving, I’m sure you’ll love this delicious and ...

Hey pal! Come and enjoy these palets!

My poor non French people, Le monde est petit. Really. It's a small world, and not only in that strange and non-French place called Disneyworld.  That's what I discovered a few days ago while scrolling on Instagram.  There it was, a picture of my favorite French petits gâteaux: Palets solognots (my whole childhood is in those two words). Except that the caption read "Shriini Keshmeshi", which, may I tell you, is no French at all. How could a traditional Iranian cookie look so much as my very ...

Pass me the Pastis ! Tarte aux figues au pastaga…

My dear, non French people, Let me try to debunk another horrible prejudice that people usually have against us, the Francais. No, we're not all obsessed with wine.Some of us also enjoy a little glass of a stronger alcohol, from time to time. Like Pastis for example. This anise flavored-liquor is a must-have in any French cupboard. No apéritif without Pastis ! It's also deeply linked with South of France and Provence, and that's why I thought of it when I bought figs at the ...
