Our guide to websites that can help you broaden your knowledge of France
Delicious French food made in just 20 minutes? That is the aim of the food blog everydayfrenchchef.com written by American Meg Bortin who lives in Paris and Burgundy. A journalist and writer with a brief career as a professional chef and more than 30 years cooking for friends and family, Meg calls her popular blog “the modern cook’s guide to producing fabulous French cuisine without spending hours in the kitchen”.
There are a mixture of classic French recipes, such as tarte aux fraises and confit de canard as well as more contemporary dishes, all with clear instructions and tips from Meg. These are organised into sections like starters, fish, poultry and desserts so you can easily find something for a weekday dinner or to entertain friends. Everydayfrenchchef.com also has menu suggestions, recipes for stables like pastry and sauces and even videos showing you how to make mayonnaise and mustard vinaigrette. Meg also shares tips on ingredients and kitchen equipment and teaches cookery classes from her own kitchen in Paris.
