In Episode 005 of Snack Judgment, we meet my friend Margaux, and we talk about the myths and the marvels of French food!
We discuss being vegetarian in France, the quintessential French cookbook “La cuisine pour tous” by Ginette Mathiot, the culture of hosting and serving apéro, the practice of making a special meal on a Sunday and eating it all week, the joy eating big lunches and light dinners, and the truth that french food isn’t all as heavy or fancy as we’ve been led to believe.
We also hear about Margaux’s three-colours cooking rule, how she learned to cook, and her tips on how to get into French cooking!
After getting to know my friend Ericka, the queen of entertaining, by discussing her favourite comfort foods, we talk about cooking for a crowd!
We talk about the magic of delegation, go-to snacks for a crowd, wine vs. cocktails, the power of lists, entertaining must-dos and no-gos, the need for home economics in school, how to be an extremely helpful guest, how to relieve cooking legs, the buzz of entertaining adrenaline, the best dinner party layouts, the magic of chaos, and missing our friends.
