Read it, bake it ! TEN Cookbooks I Love…

My dear, poor, non French people, Do you remember when it all started? That exact moment when you fell in the "cauldron of magic potion", as the French and perfect hero Obelix would say ? I fell in love with cooking with one book. "Desserts en bande dessinée" (Dessert recipes in comic books). My mom bought it one day and my boring wednesday afternoons (kids dind't go to school on Wedneday in France) and never-ending summer days were over. Whenever my brother and I didn't ...

Don’t hide your joy! Disguise your fruits!

My poor non-French people, How did you like Christmas holidays when you were a kid? I'm not talking about the big 25th, presents, Santa, midnight mass and tralala, but about all the long days and hours before that... My memories are full of excitement, excitement and excitement... And food too... I can still see my grand mother prepping for her village-famous bûche de Noël, my mom ordering foie gras... And us kids (my brother, my cousins, and many other friends) excited excited excited ...

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 ...

Don’t be Crude ! Eat your Crudités

My poor non French people, It's with deep sadness that I must announce you that once again, you American people have it all wrong about food. Non, the Raw diet is not a Californian invention. It was discovered centuries ago by us, the Français. Eh oui ! That's what we call les Crudités. A proper lunch in a French and perfect household could never happen unless Crudités are first served. It's usually based on fresh vegetables and amazing vinaigrette.  The best example is the carottes râpées.   6 carrots 1 ...

My poor non French people, On this hot and summery day in California, let me save you again with this gorgeous and healthy and (almost) vegan classic : la Ratatouille. RA-TA-TOUILLE Non, you don't have to be a rat chef from Hollywood to master it... It's actually one of the easiest dish to do.
