Chaud Cacao! Or the French and perfect Chocolate cake

My dear, poor, non-French people, What does a girl need to be really French and Perfect? A pair of Louboutin? A glass of Demoiselle Champagne? The last Vanessa Bruno it-bag? Non non non les amis! Pas seulement!   What she needs is also a recipe for an easy, festive and délicieux chocolate cake.    Un gâteau au chocolat, oui madame!   The one you can decide to bake from scratch at the last minute to celebrate a sister’s birthday, impress a mother in law, ...

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 ...

Be Chic! Cook Grilled Chicon!

My dear, poor, non-French people, Let me tell you one thing. "La vie, c'est de la m...", as my grande amie Maha always says. Life is a bitch. You never get exactly what you wish for, and alway miss what you don't have. Take me for example. I live in California, where the weather is 600 times better now than the rainy foggy Paris in November.  And what do I dream of ? Cobb Salad on Malibu Beach ? Pas de chemin Joseph (I guess that's ...

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 ...

Vive la saucisse!

My poor non French people,   You can't know how hard it is for a Parisienne to live in California like I do.  Imagine, living in a place where everybody is smiling all the time! Where people actually say hello and "have a good day" in the shops or at the restaurant! I was so shocked when I first moved to LA that I thought people were actually making fun of me and were laughing in my back. Why couldn't they just groan ...

Mango Sisters’ Tatin !

My poor, dear, non French people, I don't know how it works for your guys, but in my country, friendship is very important.  French and Perfect women all have their own little gang, girls with whom they can redefine a better world, talk about Poetry and the last Vanessa Bruno Collection, and get wasted. I've been living in LA for two years now, and have had the great chance to form my own precious perfect local gang. But sometimes I get nostalgic, and think ...

Be a good pâte! Bake a French and perfect Pâte brisée!

My dear, poor, non French people, Today I've decided to be bonne pâte.  I guess you strange English speaking people would say I’ve decided to « be a good sport », which sums up well our cultural gap : when we think of somebody being nice, we compare him or her to a tasty baking dough. Not to a weird and tiring hobby. Anyhow, let me give you my French and Perfect recipes for a good pie dough. Pâte Brisée     2 cups Flour  4 oz Butter  1 Egg Yolk  1/8 cup Chilled water ...

Don’t be chicken! Cook some poulet basquaise!

My dear non French people, I hear from time to time that people outside of my wonderful country think that we French and perfect people are proud and arrogant.  Well, why wouldn't we ? Didn't we invent the Camembert and the chateau de Versailles ?  And anyhow, this is nothing compared to the wonderful strong and proud character of the Basque people. They live in the South West of France and the Northern part of Spain, and you might have heard that they have ...

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 ...

Forget mustard : you must try moutarde !

My poor non French people,   Sometimes I feel so sorry for you. Is that true that American kids believe that French dressing is a sugary  kind of sauce (Ketchup and Worcestershire in it, really ?) ? Or that you really think that this awful yellow bottle of French's is actually French mustard ? I tell you, the mustard climbs to my nose just thinking of it. (This is a French expression to explain incredible anger, something like what your green friend Hulk would express) Now, ...
