I’m a 20 years-old French girl living in Paris. I started to get interested in everything that deals with food last year so now i’m trying to cook and taste various bakeries, pastries and restaurants. I prefer desserts so most of the time you’ll find pastries and desserts recipes.
My péchés mignons are Coffee or Salted Butter Caramel (from Des gâteaux & du Pain) Religieuses & the “Infiniment vanille” tart (from Pierre Hermé) concerning desserts.
As for salted food, i love my grandma’s foie gras, foie gras ice-cream (in fact, everything with foie gras), food from Périgord (confit duck, truffles, Sarladaises potatoes…), and pasta.
Since September 2011 and for a year, i’m living in Taipei for my studies. I try some restaurants and food there and make reviews. Unfortunately, it is quite hard to cook on the campus since we don’t have any cooking materials, so i can’t upload any recipes, except some really basic ones that you can cook with a micro-waves.
Actually this blog is one section of my main blog, “A frog in Taipei” that tells about my adventures in Taipei. I decided to create this section because not everyone is interested by food and my friends could get bored if i publish all those articles on the main page. Furthermore, i can write about French food for now and continue it even after i finish my year abroad. That’s why it is easier this way.
By the way, you surely noticed that i make a lot of mistakes. I’m sorry, i’m not fluent in English, but i want to share with everyone my reviews and the recipes that i can find, because sometimes i’m myself bothered by the fact that i don’t understand a recipe of a typical dish because of the language. So writing both in English and French is easier for everyone. But i’m sorry for my mistakes in English.
