The Clean Plate Club, Episode #11: Clotilde Dusoulier

Almost a decade ago, when I started my scrappy little food blog, an e-mail arrived all the way from Paris, France from a young woman named Clotilde Dusoulier who had her own food blog called Chocolate & Zucchini. She told me that she liked what I was doing; I checked out her site and I liked what she was doing. We became fast friends–digital pen pals, you might say. We had a dinner at Babbo in New York (documented here with pictures erased, sadly), a dinner in Paris at Ze Kitchen Galerie (those pictures work!). She went on to write several books, including Chocolate & Zucchini: Daily Adventures in a Parisian Kitchen, Clotilde’s Edible Adventures in Paris, and–most recently–a book so gorgeous I have to show you a picture of it.

That’s her brand new French Market Cookbook and it’s absolutely stunning. I can’t recommend it highly enough.

Our conversation–which we conducted over Skype–covers everything from baby rearing, how she refers to her fella Maxence, her time in San Francisco, the most surprising thing about America, starting her food blog, how she defines her cooking style, writing cookbooks and if she ever craves an In-N-Out Burger.

Thanks to Clotilde for taking the time to chat with me! You can also listen in iTunes by clicking here.
