And we are back …

Welcome to the 2016 Edition of Musette du Jour!

Yes, once again I am cooking alongside the Tour de France however this time for something different, I am cooking in spirit of Mireille Guiliano, author of French Women Don’t Get Fat.

FWDGF hit our shelves in 2005 and presented us with an inspiring view on the French paradox of eating for pleasure without blowing your waistline. I am intrigued to try out Mireille’s philosophy…

But! Before you worry that this will be a diet version of Musette, do not despair.  My first recipe for Stage 1 is drawn from Mireille’s FWDGF Cookbook (which I can highly recommend) and it suitably addresses my deepest darkest fear …  how you can you eat for pelasure without eating chocolate?!

You can check out the first two recipes here:
