Le French food blog to die for…

B?atrice Peltre, the Frenchwoman behind the world-famous blog La Tartine Gourmande calls herself a ?food writer, stylist and photographer?, but we think the best description appears in the title of her eponymous cookbook: provider of ‘recipes for an inspired life?. And inspired you will be reading this blog and marvelling at how how effortlessly B?a makes beautiful food.

Originally from Northwestern France, and a teacher/translator by profession, B?a is now one of the notable – and Martha Stewart-approved – French chefs on the US East Coast, having started blogging about food, her utmost obsession, around 2005.

She cooks the same way she lives: honestly, healthily, beautifully – hence the blog name, which she explains here. La Tartine Gourmande book is a collection of favourite comfort dishes using her go-to ingredients – think vanilla, saffron, cumin, coriander, and lime – and stories from her blog.

For instant inspiration from B?a, follow her on Twitter and Instagram. And if you decide to make one of her dishes, let us know on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram – we love a good food snap!
