About the little owl in the kitchen

By Mélanie, on Tuesday, January 1, 2008

Hi! My name is Mélanie, I'm a 27 years old French girl living in Paris.

Actually, "French girl" is not 100% true, think more of a mix of different nationalities. First you'd have to combine French and German (from my mom). Then my dad sprinkled some Italian. Finally, I was flavored by an American cohabitation (friends in Wisconsin and 8 months spent in Dallas). You'll probably be able to see all these influences in my way of cooking...

It all started with baking. I remember being 4 years old, baking an apple cake with my grand-mother every Wednesday. Then I remember all the fabulous cakes my Omie (German grand-mother) used to do. Between them and all the (only) homemade dishes from my mom (no wonder I'm so picky!), I've learned to cook as the rest of my family : to show how much I care.

Now, I work in finance, but I still want to prepare food for my friends and family, so it happens in the evening. Or in the night. I'm known for cooking until 2 in the morning before having friends for dinner! Hence the title of my blog... A little space to share with you the recipes we like, if I cannot prepare them for you.

So welcome, and thank you for stopping here. I hope you'll enjoy it, and that you'll try some of the dishes. I'd love to hear from you!
