The hachis Parmentier is a gratin dish made with mashed potatoes and ground beef. This traditional French dish was born in Paris, and tradition has it that its name is due to the pharmacist Antoine Parmentier, who proposed it to Louis XVI, in the belief that the tuber, or rather potato, would be an effective remedy against famine.

A BALANCED DIET, THE PARISIAN DREAM…

  • Time: Monday, 18 March 2019

A well-informed Parisienne is a healthy Parisienne! What are we supposed to be eating these day? What’s actually good for you? What’s not? Trying to decide from women’s magazines can drive you crazy. And scientific magazines aren’t exactly crystal clear either. The Mediterranean diet? High-protein diet? Fat, no fat, low-fat? Sugar, sugar free, sugar substitute? What a headache…

Froufrou è anzitutto un luogo dove si vive, dove ci si ritrova fra soli iniziati, persone esperte in una innegabile “art de vivre” parigina: Froufrou si ispira alla leggerezza e spensieratezza della Vecchia Parigi, dove regnava l’allegria, la condivisione e la varietà. È un luogo unico e fuori dal tempo, un luogo di appuntamenti, di lasciarsi andare. Qui si mangia, qui si discute, qui si fa festa, e qui ogni giorno si possono avvicinare gli artisti del teatro, fino a notte fonda.

The usual bad mood at the change of season? A little mental fatigue? Excessive nervousness from stress? But instead of running to lie down on the psychoanalyst's couch, rush to the nearest analysis laboratory holding a beautiful specimen of urine… Once you find a deficiency of one or more neurotransmitters, it's possible to intervene with the right foods to recreate a state of equilibrium…

In today’s episode, Chef Alain Passard is going to share with us five main topics about French gastronomy and the eating style of Parisian women. Passard became famous thanks to the extraordinarily artistic way he works with raw ingredients, which has led him to create his menus according to the seasons and his "gardens" located in three different climatic regions of France.

Is there a link between food and stress? Yes, it works both ways. What we eat affects our mood, depending on whether we allow ourselves the food we like. And our emotions impact our diet: they suppress our appetite or, conversely, cause us to indulge. Food is a quick fix for relieving tension…

TRENDY & DIETETIC ZUCCHINI CARPACCIO

  • Time: Tuesday, 05 February 2019

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.

If she is not in a hurry, the Parisian tries to start the day with a pleasurable breakfast, prepared to perfection. Starting the day with a balanced breakfast is so fun and, above all, healthy... If you are among those who go to work without having breakfast, perhaps the time has arrived to change such a bad habit and transform your breakfast into another glamorous and healthy moment.

My friend Anne Lipscomb loves Paris and comes once a year for her pleasure but she also realised wonderful videos about the parisian woman, her art of life and her style. « I treasured the vibrant art and the cultural life of Paris, its fabulous food and café culture, and the beauty of its architecture and parks ». I would like to present you Anne and her last video « French women don’t get fat and now I don’t either. Or French Women Don’t Get Fat and Now I Don’t Either»…
