Mangez bien, riez souvent, aimez beaucoup – This is a popular French saying which means: “Eat well, laugh often, love abundantly.” Who wouldn’t agree with this? This is why it’s said that when it comes to romance and food no one does it better than the French! I have always had a love affair with France – their cinema, art, culture, men and of-course Food… mhmnmmmm
French cuisine is popular for the rich tastes and subtle nuances with long and rich history. The best thing about French food is that it’s both healthy and refined – No wonder most of the Michelin star chefs are from France. French cuisine also has a very strong influence from Italian cuisine – oh and how I love both these cuisines. It has always been my dream to own a country house in South of France where I can grow loads of fresh herbs and learn baking. There you go – you can’t talk about France without being stupidly romantic – oh dear!
Bonjour French Food very kindly delivered a box of their gourmet food to my doorstep – awww. They sell French subscription boxes with different goodies every month which gets delivered to your door step. The boxes usually contains a variety of things including seasoning, chutney’s, chocolates and other French delicacies.
My box had –
Cassoulet – sausage and duck casserole
Paries – Nutty chocolates
Terrine De Thon – A fish paste with nuts
French Chutney made with sweet onions and anchovies
Here is my selfie with my Bonjour French Food Box – I was quite tired after a whole day so pardon me for not looking my best!
What I did with my box –
I decided to add the chilli flakes to the casserole while heating it up to add a little bit of a kick to it. I still have the chilli which I use often in my omelets and pasta dishes.
I decided to eat all the paries because they were ridiculously tasty!
I use the chutney with Chorizo and other pork dishes, it goes really well with Egg too.
I ate the tuna spread with toast – a tasty snack.
Check out their website for the next box and get yourself one if you want a taste of France in UK or wherever you are!
