Béatrice

Bonjour, my name is Béatrice. Thanks to my grandmother, I developed a love of cooking in early childhood. At her, everything smelled of apple brioche, rhubarb jam and fresh country produces. It’s not always easy to cook in Paris as the number of invitations exceeds the days of the week! So, it’s really necessary to think out the menu in order to have a successful diner at home. The wining recipe: gourmet, seasonal and dietetic dishes. And surprising presentations. No longer possible to serve the traditional Blanquette of veal to make your guests happy…

In love in Paris…

Are you enthralled by Paris but only have a few days to discover one of the most bewitching of capitals? Here is an idea of a romantic visit… Montmartre, Medici Fountain, hôtels particuliers (mansion houses) in the Marais...

Whether in Paris or elsewhere, the Parisian woman is keen on always being in the right place at the right time! Restaurants, bars, cultural or social events—she is aware of everything that is happening in her city and organizes her forays with savoir-faire.

This beautifully colored soup is a tradition in France. I got the recipes from my grandma’ Madeleine that used to prepare it for her grandchildren in winter time. Many thanks to her. It is very low in cholesterol and sodium, it is also a good source of vitamin E, vitamin B6, folate, iron, magnesium and phosphorus. Also a very good source of dietary fiber, vitamin A, vitamin C, potassium, copper and manganese... Serve hot as a light and creamy first course.

The kitchen is a fascinating place for young children. Even older they might be intrigued by how baked goods and meals come together. French moms appreciate cooking with the kids when possible, during holidays or Wednesday afternoon. Preparing a traditional quiche Lorraine with your children, will seem like fun to them…

Among the most brilliant chefs of his generation, Jean-François Piège received his love of good food and his culinary passion from his family. After working in the kitchens of the Elysée, he joined the restaurants of Hôtel Vernet, then the Louis XV, Plazza Athénée with Alain Ducasse and Hôtel Crillon. Today, Paris is ranting about him, he’s constantly on television and he’s at Thoumieux, the famous Parisian brasserie he bought two years ago.

Long candy, square candy, round candy… the Parisians love all sorts of bonbons. For some of us candy is a treat, for others, an indulgence. The French have had a sweet tooth for over 2,000 years! French confectionary comes in all shapes and sizes, depending on our tastes and mood. Les bonbons, c’est si bon! Even if we know very well that sugar is not so “bon” for health! That’s what candy means to us! And you?

Don't expect to find strictly French food in Paris! Like any big city, Paris is home to a vibrant mix of international cuisines and Parisian girls love to discover original or creative recipes as this funny and healthy Yellow Gazpacho recipes with sunny yellow tomatoes! The difference in color between red and yellow tomatoes is not just superficial…

A great, seasonal “anti-aging health food” recipe. Growing older inevitably means a progressive functional decline, but we can still limit the damage by paying careful attention to our lifestyle, and part of this means eating right!
Although there may be differing definitions of the ideal diet, there is universal agreement about the primordial importance of plant-based foods. This is not limited to just fruit and veggies, but includes wholegrain products, herbs and spices, olive oil, dark chocolate, and beverages like green tea and red wine.

In France, at Christmas we eat a lot of goose or duck “Foie gras”, a popular and well-known delicacy in our French cuisine. Foie gras is usually prepared into mousse, parfait or pâté. For those that do not eat goose or duck Foie gras, I propose an alternative, a diet and tasty mousse of trout, almost the same aspect for a delicate appetizer… My favorite Mom’ Christmas recipes…

French Soupe à l'oignon is a delicious soup for wintertime usually served as a starter. Even if it is so Parisian, Parisian’s find it heavy and today eat it very few. But all of us do order a time a year a Soup à l’oignon, when comes out a strong envy of tradition and diet exception! This is my grand’ma French Onion Soup recipe, once you try it you'll never try another. It culminates in a rich-tasting soup with melt-in-your-mouth onions.
