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…

The Parisians love all sorts of bonbons!

  • Time: Friday, 30 January 2015

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?

Onion soup, a monument of french inheritance

  • Time: Tuesday, 09 December 2014

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.

Mini savarins with autumn pears

  • Time: Wednesday, 22 October 2014

What pears? Beurré Hardy, Comice, Conférence, Louis Bonne, Douillard or Alexandrine
The French love pears. They’re tasty, refined and a natural form of medicine that also fights skin ageing. Moreover, they contain 84% water, ideal for diets. In addition, the high calcium content in the pear makes it one of the most recommended fruits for children and adolescents. So, just be careful not to overdo it because of the sugars!

In Paris we love Italian cooking.  But we love to adapt it in a less traditional way making it minimalist, trendy or personal home made with a touch of “my grand’ma best recipes”. In other way we are very good in creating fusion cooking with the dishes of our Italian neighbours which we’re quite happy to make part of our Parisian heritage. From Tiramisu to spaghetti bolognese to special risotto, not a dishe that we try to adopt & adapt…

Trendy & dietetic Zucchini carpaccio

  • Time: Friday, 03 October 2014

Although Parisians love zucchini gratins, mashes and ratatouilles, the trend is for carpaccio in all of its forms. This is also true for zucchini, an ideal dish for friends before going shopping on avenue Montaigne. To go with a bottle… of water, of course! Recommendation: avoid adding the sugar for a healthy attitude.

Fusion & attractive Vegetables recipes

  • Time: Friday, 03 October 2014

From early childhood on, our parents tried to instill the importance of vegetables as they’re full of vitamins, minerals, antioxidants and help us stay slim and in shape… In short, not always very amusing. However, the Parisian is able to render things trendy and chic, even vegetables! Here’s one of my favorite recipes that my friends in Paris are fighting over right now:
