Gluten free and dairy free cake!

My poor non French people, Sorry I've been away for so long. I was very busy trying to understand how Snapchat works and if life has a meaning without instagram (turns out, not bad at all! You should check it out!) Anyway, I made this cake today and brought it to the office I share with two beautiful and wonderful and very Los Angeles ladies, who of course have special diets (because, oui, it's LA, mon ami!). Well, as French and perfect ...

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 French and perfect: drink APERITIF!

 My poor non-French people, If you don’t speak French and are planning to travel to la Belle France, there are a few sentences you need to master in order to really get into the French spirit. Of course I’m sure you know all about « Je t’aime » or « Deux croissants s’il vous plait », and even some more olé olé sentences like the chorus of this famous disco song some American tourists never fail to sing when they meet a French native – excuse ...

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 ...

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. ...
