"Axelle, you should create a blog !".
I denied. To create a blog ? For what ? There are millions and millions cooking blog.
And I'm not a cook. I mean, I love to cook for my friends or my family. But I'm not a great cook. I'm just like million others.
And if I cook, I have to take pictures. And have a look to all the cooking blogs with their marvelous pictures... I'M NOT A PHOTOGRAPHER EITHER !
Last year, I've watched a Nigella Lawson's show. I love her.
And she said something...
She said she loved italian cooking better than french cooking, because it was easier and without too much sophistication.
As you know, french people have a lot of defaults ... Yes, we know ... :)
And one of them is that we are chauvinist ...
We can criticize our country, and we do it often. But we're the only one.
If someone else do the same, we will defend and protect our traditions, country, way of living, of thinking, even if we're not totally sincere.
So ... Hearing Nigella, my Goddess, my Hero saying that ... I had to do something !
And little by little, born the idea to create a blog, written in english, for all the foreign people who want to know how we really cook.
I've decided to make my weak points becoming the goal of this blog.
I'm not a great cook. It's true. So, you'll see a normal french woman cooking in a normal way. Without sophistication.
I'm not a photographer. It's true. So, you'll see pictures without prodigious effects. Without sophistication.
...I have to admit I would like to improve this point ... :)
I hope you like to read this blog as much as I love to write it.
I hope you understand my bad english and it doesn't prevent you to understand how to cook my recipes...
Thank you for all, because without you, without readers, a blog is useless.
Thank you for all of you who come once or twice or regularly.
Thank you for your comments that I love. Really love.
Together, we'll keep making this blog alive.
Welcome in my french cuisine !
PS : Nigella, if you read this blog, don't worry, I forgive you. I still love you. You're still my Goddess...
And this blog is a little bit thank to you :)
Bonne Année 2013 !
