France - - Les Nouvelles -

De­li­cious French food made in just 20 min­utes? That is the aim of the food blog ev­ery­ 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. Ev­ery­ 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.
