In my efforts to learn French this semester, I’ve been trying to watch, read or listen to something in French every day.
And I’ve been trying to read food blogs in French. I say “try” because, well, they’re blogs. They’re slangy, they have typos, they have weird turns of phrase in them, but at the same time, they force me to read in a way I won’t get to otherwise, and it introduces me to a lot of words I wouldn’t otherwise encounter. (To wit: my textbook translates moule as “mussel” but it can also mean a cake pan.)
Anyway, here are my personal favorites so far:
- Les notes bleus d’une gourmande
- Cuisiner… tout simplement
- les miam miam d’Annabel
- mes petites recettes faciles
I won’t say these blogs are the reason I got an A, but I’m pretty sure they didn’t hurt.
Endnote: the title of this post is a reference to Téléfrançais, an educational kids’ show from the late 1980s, which, well, see for yourself…
