STOP JUICING! TRY SOUPING!

My poor non-French people, Please stop all your juicing right now. As the French say, you can't live only of love and fresh water, and I'm sure deep down you know that nobody can really live only on fresh juice either. Of course it's great to believe that there's an easy solution to everything, and that engulfing gallons of sweet liquid will allow you to stay slim, fit, and never get old. But as much as there's no prince charming (except my dear French ...

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 ...

Métro Bistrot Resto! Where to eat in Paris, 2e partie.

My dear, poor, non-French people, Here is another list for those of you who are lucky enough to go and visit Paris. Restaurants you can just decide to go at (almost) the last minute. They are actually my favorites : it's more about daily great food, places where you can escape the sometimes too grey Paris, and warm up life with friends, family, or just you and your glass of wine. Don't try to test them all (except if you're staying for weeks)... Paris is ...

Cook Faisan like a real peasant!

 My dear, poor, non French people, Let me tell you: it's never funny to be the turkey of the stuffing. I guess that would be the litteral translation of "Etre le dindon de la farce", a popular French saying that means "being the laughing stock". Why do American people are so concerned about it ? The stuffing I mean. That what amazed me most last month as I was enjoying my first real Thanksgiving. Even a gourmet like me had never seen people fight over ...

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 ...

Eat your wine, have some fraises !

My dear poor non French people, This blog is a great opportunity for me to tell the world what we Français are about, and to put an end to too many outrageous prejudices. Non, we're not spending our days with a glass of wine in the hand. Sometimes, when it's very hot like today in Los Angeles, we also have it in our plate. So allow me to share with you one of my grand mother's recipes : Les Fraises au vin. 1 pound of Strawberries 1/2 ...
