French Fridays: Le Café Gourmand

Those of you who have been reading this blog for a while will know how much I like to “minify” recipes, especially desserts (because, much as I love them, there’s only so many desserts a two-person household can eat!).

French Fridays: A day in The New Paris with Lindsey Tramuta

I’m not sure exactly how I came across Lindsey Tramuta on social media but I remember following her on Twitter way back in early 2011 and thinking how she was living a life similar to one I’d probably have lived had I moved to Paris 15 years later than I did. She and I had […]
