How to have a French Easter

Do you want to be French and perfect and have a French and perfect Easter? Well, judging from my family, I guess you just need to start the day by eating 3 tons of chocolate bunny or chocolate bells or chocolate fish or chocolate hens. At home. the most difficult thing for me and my brother was trying to actually hide the chocolate after we had found it because my dad would try and eat them. There was a whole hide and seek ...

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 ...

Pack a Paques Lunch for Easter! PATE DE PAQUES

My poor non-French people, Let me confess a little thing, just between you and me, entre nous. I'm not French and perfect. Ok, I'm French, and most of the time, as most of us do, I just wish I was perfect. But I'm trying! And you know, as I've learned here in the US, "Fake it until you make it", so let's pretend I actually have absolutely no defect, a rocking body and a wonderful, easy nature. Ho, and also, that my photos ...

Gorge on Gougères! C’est l’apéro!

 My poor non French people, Forget about happy hour ! (does it mean that the 23 other hours you'll spend today have to be sad?)! Be French and perfect, and jump right into one of the best moment of a meal in France: l'apéritif. The French love this time right before lunch or dinner so much that "l'apéro" is sometimes more like a meal in itself: you eat so much "hors d'oeuvres" that you're not hungry enough to pursue with the meal! It's a great ...

Don’t be a dinde! Cook a turkey leftover pie!

My poor non French people, I might be a little turkey, une petite dinde (or as you might say, a silly goose), with a pois chiche (garbanzo) in the head, but I always feel sad after Thanksgiving. First, because I'm always kind of disappointed by the party in itself: judging by all the movies and TV series I had seen back in France, I thought that compulsorily, there was a moment when people would get very angry and throw insults, family secrets ...

Better than pizza: Pissaladière!

My poor non-French people, Non non non, I swear! Summer is not over! At least not here, in California, where the wonderful weather is now getting kind of scary: after four years here, I must admit that I am now nostalgic with the fall and the winter season in Paris. It's strange to live under an almost constant fine weather. Time passes strangely, there are no markers... Apart from one sad one: the day the tomato disappear. I mean the real tomato. ...

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 ...

Don’t be a duck ! Cook magret and patates!

My poor non-French people, What are you cooking when the weather is cold as a duck? Un froid de canard is that terrible  cold weather you think is kind of romantic when you're thinking of it in the midst of summer heat, and totally depressing when it's actually happening and you suddenly feel that you've been converted into a gigantic icecube... I live in LA so I really can't complain about that kind of problem anymore, but today the weather is not that great, ...
