French Food Blogs

Anyone follow any French food blogs? From France? In French? Or even in English?

If so, anyone have any links they'll share?

  1. I really enjoy Clotilde's, Chocolate & Zucchini..
    It's in English but I prefer the French version.

      There are many cooking blogs like Mamina's for instance. For restaurants and cuisine, there's for instance (in addition to Clotilde):
      francoissimon.typepad.fr (a major food critic)
      gastrosontour.wordpress.com (GoT on Chowhound!)
      ptipois.canalblog.com (with an English version)
      www.julotlespinceaux.com (c'est moi! -- in English and French
      )http://johntalbottsparis.typepad.com/... (the moderator on eG, in English

      )

      As you will see on these blogs' blogrolls, there are many others but that's not a bad start.

      1. re: Beach Chick

        Clotilde Dusoulier's blog has certainly gotten much internat'l attention, and she has a new book (her second):

        I know it's not a blog but Paris Culinaire has lots of good Paris food-related shopping info: http://www.parisculinaire.com/index.html (in Eng or Fr)

          Agree 100% Love his blog, it is fun and entertaining and informative and he is never staring at his bellybutton! The guy is so not pretentious in any way. Hands down--his is the best of the best!

        2. I love La cuiller en bois, from the Bordeaux area (my favorite)!

          1. My favorite is Ms. Glaze's Pommes d'Amour. I'm fascinated with her experiences as an American worman going through the Le Cordon Bleau cooking school and then getting a job at a top restaurant in Paris. The link is: http://msglaze.typepad.com/

            1. For restaurants in the south of France, particularly the Cote d'Azur and into the Italian Riviera, refer to http://countryepicure.wordpress.com (in English). The two couples tend to review the finer, more expensive, restaurants - not always what one wants or can afford. In addition, his critiques are not always incisive. But what makes his blog worthwhile is the plate by plate description of the meal, accompanied by clear photos. Sometimes, that's enough - you've had the experience!
