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 ...

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 ...

Potluck meal à la Frenchie ! The Poule au pot recipe

My  poor non-French people, You are so cabbage. Vous êtes trop choux. So cuuuute, if I may try to translate. It’s my fourth November here in LA, and I’m still amazed at how big Thanksgiving is for Americans, and how most of you suddenly get all stressed out and concerned about what you’re going to eat and cook. It’s the one time of the year when you turn into French ! So I’ll give thanks to that this year, and to this wonderful tradition ...

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 ...

Pat yourself with some pâté! (how I cracked my grandmother’s secret)

My dear, poor, non-French people, Some secrets are the hardest to break. Family secrets above all. There are plenty in my family, many cadavres dans le placard (and other skeletons in the closet  that every French and perfect family has to have), but I must tell you the hardest for me to crack was this one. La recette du paté de mamie Georgine. My grand-mother is a great  cook. I've already written about her, and about my other grand-mother Laurence, whose bûche de Noël, pain ...

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 ...

When life gives you lemon, make Citrons confits!

My poor non-French people, Please, stop thinking that time is never on your side... Yes, aging can make you better! At least when you're a lemon. C'est déjà ça! (At least that's something!) Let me share with you how to make one of the ingredient I use the most in my everyday cooking. Citrons confits are not a franco-french speciality in themselves, as they are mostly used in North African cuisine, but they're also part of many mediterranean recipes, and are great to ...

Jean-François Piège loves mimolette!

French and perfect Jean-François Piège is the young chef everybody talks about. When he opened his flagship restaurant, Thoumieux, in Paris two years ago, he won two Michelin stars right away... I was honored to meet him and interview him at Le Grand Fooding Crush Paris-LA, and he was kind enough to support the mimolette fight, AND give us an idea as to how to use it in a dish. Hope you'll like it! Merci!   (and remember... Save the mimolette!)
