Gluten Free, No Fat and 100% French: vive le macaron!

My poor non-French people, Valentine's day is around the corner and I am sad again. Not that I have no Valentine to dream about (merci ça va, j'ai tout ce qui me faut, I have all I need thank you!), but by the amount of marketing campaigns or other bad chocolate candies it produces all around me in America. L'amour n'est pas à vendre, messieurs! Love canot be sold, and even less so with bad quality candies! I've never liked la Saint Valentin, (why celebrate ...

French cooking 101: Béchamel

 My dear poor non French people, Did you know you could do magic with just a few ingredients ? I was always amazed, and still am, by all the wonders you can do with just three extremely basic things. Butter. Flour. Milk. You can make crepe. A pie dough. Or you can make the most traditional delicious warm sauce : béchamel. Béchamel is one of the obligatoire basics of French cooking. It's called a sauce mère, a mother sauce. It was invented at the same time ...

Be tongue and chic! Make Langues de chats!

My dear, poor, non French people, Those of you who know me "pour de vrai", for real, all know it for sure: I can never hold my tongue. Tenir sa langue was  one of the hardest task at school for me, even more than any athletic activities, although I was always the number one worst athlete wherever I went (yes, some teachers thought I was running backwards to break the school records of worst time at the traditional winter race). My ...

French cooking 101: Forget dressing, make a Vinaigrette!

My poor non-French people, At last I have the opportunity to, once again, change your life (and the destiny of your tastebuds), with just one little big news: French dressing is NOT like this at all (pas du tout!) Yes, I know, it says French, and even more appetizing "deluxe", but believe me, this is as French as a smiling waiter in Paris: it just doesn't exist. And anyway, just the idea of buying some pre-made sauce to put on a salad wants ...

Salt and sablés, sandy cookies à la Frenchie!

My dear non-French people, Forget about cookies. They are so American ! And actually, French people are better at making them... Oui oui, it's true ! That was basically the point of a very popular ad when I was a kid. This poor American girl was calling her parents to tell them the cookies she was eating in France were almost as good as her mom's... We loved the idea so much that we would always repeat the last sentence "Poor Kate, alone in France!"... Now ...

Be a French and perfect cook: Have your eggs “à la coque” !

My poor non-French people, How can you live without mouillettes in your life? If there's one thing I miss here in the US, it's ça. A simple slice of French and perfect bread, fresh, with butter. _Real butter, if I may. Not the whitish thing I see in most American restaurants. Come on my poor non French-people, what's the point of eating fat if it has no taste? How can it be so dull? Do you make it with bleached cows? So when I'm not ...
