A French classic… Salmon with sorrel - French Foodie Baby

A French classic… Salmon with sorrel - French Foodie Baby

When I was about four years old, my uncle had a community garden where he grew various vegetables. Memory works strangely, doesn’t it?

The simplicity of a roasted duck - French Foodie Baby

When someone asks me, “What’s Pablo having today?”, and I answer, “Duck”, I immediately get that “how fancy, how French” vibe… Somehow, duck sounds fancy, something you only have in a restaurant.

The heirloom is precious in the eye of the inheriter. Watching it grow, all that it takes, work and patience and nurture. Honoring where it comes from, what it stands...

Peach Lavender Custard

Peach Lavender Custard

There is something both fascinating and somewhat irritating about seeing things come full circle. I grew up in a village in Normandy, France, where I spent minutes, hours and years devising plans on how to leave the land of cream and apples, go to a bigger city, a bigger country, elsewhere. And I eventually made it...
