Hello there and welcome to “Weekends in a French Kitchen!”
Have you ever wanted to whip up a souffle? Wrestle a lobster? Move about the kitchen with the grace and presence of a seasoned French chef, dicing, mixing, and stirring up delectable meals? And have you wanted to do it in such a way that if that souffle becomes the greatest triumph of your life, or if that lobster wins the fight, you have someone to celebrate and/or commiserate with who knows exactly what you’re talking about? Then you’ve come to the right place!
The Three French Hens are a group of, you’ve guessed it–three women! We also have a resident Chickadee. We are all foodies and francophiles, scattered across the globe, and have virtually gathered together to cook through every single recipe in particular French cookbooks that catch our fancy. We are looking for other home cooks that want to take on this challenge with us!
We’re beginning with two books, because apparently we’re just plain crazy! However, because we’re cooking through Cafe Boulud Cookbook by Daniel Boulud & Dorie Greenspan as well as A Kitchen In France: A Year Of Cooking In My Farmhouse by Mimi Thorisson, we’re confident that this will be a truly fantastic experience! If two books is two much for you, please don’t let that stop you; pick just one and jump on our merry bandwagon!
Whether you are a novice cook, seasoned professional, or anywhere in between, we invite you to take this culinary journey and to share your adventures with us, gathering in our virtual country kitchens each weekend as we gather in yours.
Since we are still organizing our group and some members haven’t had a chance to purchase the cookbook(s) yet, we will begin our adventure on July 4th, 2015. So pick up those cookbooks, click on the “Join” tab to get started, and rise to your inner chef!
We can’t wait to cook along with you! It’s going to be a delicious adventure!
Don’t forget to enter the giveaway for your chance to win a set of both the cookbooks you need to get started! We are giving away three sets of cookbooks! Enter using the Rafflecopter widget below!
