Want to improve your cooking skills and discover some tips and tricks about the French cuisine? Intofrench proposes you a selection of blogs and websites that should help you. Chocolate & Zucchini is a blog written by Clotilde Dusoulier, a 31-year-old Parisian woman who lives in Montmartre and shares her passion for all things food-related. MyFrenchCuisine is another blog about French recipes... cooked up in California. In the same breaking-genre style, French Revolution proposes recipes of the kind of French-American fusion cuisine, aiming to reverse the idea that French food is hard and complicated. And finally, Kitchen at Camont is a website proposed by the published author and cuisine guru Kate Hill about Gascon food, one of the most rich and interesting in France. Bon appétit!
