Aid Moubarak!

Today or tomorrow muslims around the world will celebrate the end of the ramadan. I am not a practising muslim myself and do not plan to post about religion anytime on this blog. I am a food driven person!I just thought it would be a good occasion to post about my last morrocan dinner at a very good friend of mine and give a few recipes of typical (and delicious) morrocan ramadan dishes. Unfortunately, I ran out of time this week. My post will come later. In the mean time, I wish muslims and gourmets around the world a... [Lire la suite]

Mea Culpa from a lazy gourmande

Dear readers (if there are still any), Mea Culpa! I am indeed a lazy gourmande. Just a little bit more than one year ago, I abandonned my blog without notice... There was not much time to cook this year, nor to blog. I miss it. I regret also leaving without notice.  I could say that I had warned my public since the beginning of my terrible lazyness. Although, it was not only about lazyness this year. It was a very busy year, a very good year too: I almost stopped cooking, and definitely stopped blogging, got on the verge of... [Lire la suite]

Summer time....

Spring has turn into summer in no time... This was in early june, before the summer rush... water temperature was just around 13 C,brrrr.... Since, beaches are packed with barbecued beach boys; cherries, tomatoes and nectarines have replaced my beloved asperges on the market stalls; and I haven't had one minut to myself. The last two months have been a race and being a bit lazy as well with the heat around (don't laugh, it can really be warm in Holland in summer), I kind of lost track of my kitchen diaries and other food blogs...

Help! I burned my "cocotte" Staub

I am definitely new to food blogging! Since I started this blog a few weeks ago, my kitchen is undergoing a revolution.... and I am loosing control! Apart from the everlasting mess due to my numerous tryouts in my small dutch kitchen, and the eating cold due to the food photo sessions (ask my dutchie about that!), the worst has now happened... Last week, I was enjoying the newly discovered joys of blogging while my stew was simmering quietly in the kitchen. Life was great! But then, I forgot about the time, and the stew... My...

Live from "L'autre pays du fromage"

I am a french girl living in the Netherlands, a country we familiarly call "l'autre pays du fromage" in france (no, we french are not food oriented chauvinists...). My diploma in hand, I have deserted my country more than five years ago now, full of ambitions and dreams of european citizenship... After some time, the rain , the too-pragmatic-and-too-tall dutch guys and the strange food got me thinking if this was really a country for a little girl from the south like me. That was until I found my own... [Lire la suite]

Awakening...

Spring is in the air! I am slowly awakening from my hybernation. For months I have dreamt of this blog, but the mood wasn't there. Maybe it was too cold, or too dark... Maybe I was just being lazy... Anyway, here I am! With my kitchen diaries I wish to give you a glimpse of my passion for food, my gourmandise, my curiosity. It will be fresh, spicy and slightly girlish...  Beware though... I am a lazy animal! Bienvenue dans ma cuisine! m.
