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 ...

Oh Mon Porc!!! Why Rillettes are the Best

My dear, poor, non-French people, If there's anything you have to learn from me and about French food, it's this beautiful French saying: "Tout est bon dans le cochon". Yes, everything is good in the pig (and I'm talking about the animal, right, not these filthy disgusting persons who are often sadly compared to this beautiful and generous animal)... Most recipes coming from parts of this animal are simply delicious, and as the saying says, every part of the pork is good to ...

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 ...

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 ...
