Be NICE to yourself! Make a NICOISE salad !

My poor non French people There it comes again. That dreadful moment. Spring is all around, flowers are budding, birds are chirping and you're...  scared. How are you going to make it? Why, why why,  did you have a second serving of hachis parmentier that one time at the Duponds? Can you really drop 50 pounds a day  by having just water (with sometimes a tablespoon of water in it and some sprinkled H2O on the top) for the next 45 days? Or should ...

What soup Doc? Stinging nettle!

My poor non-French people, Sometimes I  wish I was a witch. I often think of these poor ladies, in the middle ages, who were just trying to be a little different, a little freer, and would occasionnally put in  they caldron an herb or two they would have found while walking in the forest. Do you sometimes think of how we got to know what was good to eat or not? Who tried chanterelle first? Is it the same person who took ...

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 ...

Potluck meal à la Frenchie ! The Poule au pot recipe

My  poor non-French people, You are so cabbage. Vous êtes trop choux. So cuuuute, if I may try to translate. It’s my fourth November here in LA, and I’m still amazed at how big Thanksgiving is for Americans, and how most of you suddenly get all stressed out and concerned about what you’re going to eat and cook. It’s the one time of the year when you turn into French ! So I’ll give thanks to that this year, and to this wonderful tradition ...

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 ...

When life gives you lemon, make Citrons confits!

My poor non-French people, Please, stop thinking that time is never on your side... Yes, aging can make you better! At least when you're a lemon. C'est déjà ça! (At least that's something!) Let me share with you how to make one of the ingredient I use the most in my everyday cooking. Citrons confits are not a franco-french speciality in themselves, as they are mostly used in North African cuisine, but they're also part of many mediterranean recipes, and are great to ...

Fish for compliment! Bake it in salt !

My poor non-French people, I know time is hard right now for many of you. You've been reading the magazines, counting the months and weeks and seconds before "D Day", and suffering a lot. Aaaaaaaah, the world famous "countdown before bikini day"! The crazy "this one is the last and it's so easy it works all the time" diet! (just chew gum and spend the day making crunches while drinking herbal tea from the north pole!) What a nice way to go on oppressing ...

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 ...

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 ...
