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 ...

Simple et parfait: Enjoy patates sautées!

My  poor non-French people, I hope you have la frite. Yes, the fry. Or the French fry. Or the freedom fry. In either case, when you're French and perfect, it's always better to have it. La frite. Or la pêche. The peach. It doesn't mean that French and perfect women like me never leave without a frie or a peach in their purse (although it might sometimes be useful), but both sentences mean that you have plenty of energy and joie de vivre for the day. But anyhow, all this ...

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, ...

Don’t be a cornichon ! Try pickle à la French!

My dear, poor non French people, Try to understand s'il vous plait! Big is beautiful, c'est vrai. But sometimes, tiny is more tasty... It seems to me that people in America are so obsessed with making it big, that they have applied it to everything, including the natural elements. I remember my first visit to the Farmer's market in the US : plums as big a baseball, when they are hardly the size of a ping-pong ball in France... Melons you could play Basketball with... ...

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 ...

Quiche Quiche Quiche ! The best Lorraine you can bake

My dear, poor, non-French people, Please stop thinking that we Français are rude and arrogant. OK, we're sometimes a little unpleasant considering your standards, but then what would you have to tell your friends when you come back home? It's for your own good! More authentique!  And actually, I think people love our attitude: last year, more people visited France than there are residents in the country! Talk about the most visited country in the world, oui messieurs! Oui oui!  We are welcoming!  Take my friend Deborah ...

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 ...

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 ...

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 ...
