    French food

    My friends often ask me what I eat in Paris and what kind of products I buy in supermarkets while living in Paris.  To start by saying that my favourite supermarkets in Paris for shopping are Auchan, Lecrec and Monoprix. The last one I find to be more expensive, but since it’s close to my house, it’s a big advantage.  France is famous for French cuisine, and I started to understand why. There is such a great choice of products that you want to buy everything at once. To avoid this, I bought a book “Cuisine Facile” by Larousee and now I buy only the products I need for my recipes.

    OKA restaurant, Paris

    Suivant le conseil du Figaro, j’ai décide de découvrir moi-même ce fameux restaurant franco-brésilien ou il faut attendre 2 semaines pour obtenir une table. Location: close to Montmartre,  Cuisine: franco-brésilien  Ambiance: convivial, 8 tables Menu: menu unique de 6 plats à 35€. Tout est préparé devant toi ! Avis: 5/5 Le restaurant à recommander! What i didn’t expect when booking a franco-brasilian restaurant was to find service and cuisine that are worth being mentioned in every restaurant guide I know. Perhapse, this is the reason why I had to wait for 2 weeks to get a table in OKA. Location: close to Montmartre,  Cuisine: franco-brasilian  Atmosphere: cosy restaurant with 8 tables,…

    Tarte au chocolat: simply delicious

    Paris is brimming with French boulangeries (bakeries) offering amazing pastries. Everytime I pass by one of them, it is so difficult to resist not buying a pain au chocolat or tarte aux framboises. Well, I am sure, you will have a chance to buy them once you are in Paris. But today I would like to share with you a recipe of a tarte au chocolat that I cooked for my friends’ party and we just adored it! So, here it is. All you need is sugar crust pastry (I bought it already done to save time), 200 ml of cream, 200 g of chocolate and a few strawberries for…
