Bonjour! I’m Jill Colonna, a Scot whisked to Paris in 1993 by my French (Corsican) husband and for the past 25 years have become smitten with the French life. Other than my blog, I’m author of two patisserie recipe books, "Teatime in Paris" and "Mad About Macarons". Join me in my Parisian kitchen to make easy, healthy recipes with my own twists from family meals to simple entertaining à la Française - and come travel with me on delicious discoveries of gourmet treats from Paris and around France!
