The Three French Food Bloggers you Have to Check Out

As a die-hard foodie, I wish I had the time to try every recipe under the sun. With a packed college-student schedule, sometimes just scrolling through delicious looking food blogs can satisfy my cravings when I don’t have the time to cook.

French food in particular holds a special place in my heart. I often reminisce on my days in Paris and the delectable oranaix aux abricots I was addicted to while studying abroad there. In retrospect, I wish I would have tried everything in sight, but I guess that means I need to make it back for more food adventures.

In the meantime, these are the three French female food bloggers that I enjoy keeping up with the most. Each one brings a style of their own to the table, while still staying true to their roots.

1. Clotilde Dusoulier

Clotilde’s blog, Chocolate and Zucchini, delivers everything you could want in a food blog. Her recipes are simple, yet vibrant, making it easy for even the least experienced of cooks to experiment in the kitchen. Like the title, she focuses on both natural foods and decadent treats because who doesn’t need a little sweetness in their life? I plan on recreating (or at least   trying to) her stuffed lumaconi with butternut and chestnuts along with her black sesame panna cotta!

Zucchini and Mushroom Crumble

Speculoos Gnocchi

2. Mimi Thorisson

Mimi shares her rustic style, mouth-watering recipes on her blog, Manger. As a family woman, raising seven children and 14 dogs in the countryside of France, her food transmits a sense of love and earthiness. Having been raised in Hong Kong, she also incorporates Asian flavors into her food, such as in her lobster with e-fu noodles. Trust me, your friends and family will adore you because her dishes will have you thinking about throwing endless dinner parties!

3. Natacha Gajdoczki

Natacha is the author of A French Girl Cuisine, a food blog with both easy and intricate authentic French recipes. I enjoy this blog because the food is pretty simple overall, and she often takes inspiration from neighboring countries. Although she lives in Switzerland, she stays true to her French roots and recreates traditional recipes, like a mustard tart and La Reine de Saba, a French chocolate cake, reminiscent of her grandparents!
