The french idiom and food blogs

What a delight it has been to come across the wonderful food blog Chocolate and Zucchini. Not just for the amazing recipes, but for the brilliant entries about food-related French idioms! It's a full playground for word lovers.

The best bit is hearing a real french woman read the phrase, then put it in context! It's definitely scratching an itch I've had for a while to get back into learning a language. I did French at school until Year 10, and German to Year 11. I would like to pick them up again, particularly French.

I have to say though, it's such a delightful blog, I hope it's not just tout sucre tout miel....*

*translation: all sugar all honey

While I'm at it... here are some other great food blogs... do you have any favourites?

The Unbearable Lightness of Being Hungry by music and food connoisseur, Lee Tran

Pia Jane Bijkerk - while it's not really a food blog, this Sydney ex-pat does food styling and posts recipes sometimes that look AMAZING.

YAY I love Chocolate and Zucchini too! What a coincidence that I mentioned her in my recent post as well. And thank you for the shout out :) You might like lemonpi ( as well, her presentation is beautiful.

I like by a college friend of Sam's. He doesn't post often, but when he does, it's always an interesting read! And his recipes are yummy, healthy (well, heathier than others!) and not too expensive...mmm...he's got one on homemade granola in the breakfast section that I'm keen to try...
