As a Wellness, Food and Lifestyle writer for women’s website (see my author page, listing all my articles) at TAFFETA.COM, I have written 24+ articles about French food, wine, and ancestral traditions. The latest ones include: French AppetizersFrench Desserts for the Discerning Palate; and an article on why animal fats are better for us than industrial vegetable oils, What’s the Deal with Salt?How Animals Should Be Raised and Why It’s Important (my plug for Regenerative Agriculture, respecting the animal and the importance of healthy animals for us); and Alternatives Sweeteners 101. Other articles include: A FRENCH Lifestyle for Better Health (you know, it’s those old tenets of French living — getting outside, buying food in-season, cooking your own food, slowing down (with a glass of wine sometimes…); The Art of the MARCHE (how to navigate the French marché — such a joy, ahh nostalgia!); The Secret to Naturally Beautiful Skin: FAT (and I’m talking about the traditional uses of tallow and lard — respecting and using the whole animal — check out my tallow and lard skincare products – yes! – on ETSY — support regenerative agriculture when you use these products from farmers who are actually creating carbon sinks by grass-feeding their animals and creating micro-diverse soil!); I even have an article on SLEEP HACKS I’ve learned in recent years! Wait, there’s more…an article on French Wine & Cheese PAIRINGS! Or how about just FOOD and French Wine Pairings?! Also check out my EPICUREAN’S Guide to Herbs, and my Culinary Gift Guide for FOODIES (which was for Mother’s Day but now you can carry it over to the holidays, or a birthday, why not?) And lastly, if you have the time, my rundown on COOKING SHOWS. Whew!….AND in case you missed these articles, check out: saving old wine, getting back in the kitchen, cooking shows, bone broth, baconhow French women stay slim, utensils and ingredients every chef needs, living and cooking secrets of our ancestors, and even how to throw a dinner French style (once we are free from “social distancing” again!)


Cory Heyman of the “Make It and Sell It” podcast, who kindly interviewed me recently about the Bordeaux Kitchen Naturals skincare line on Etsy. In a subsequent podcast episode, Cory interviewed Lygeia Ricciardi, a long-time friend of mine, who has followed my art for the past couple of decades, and who graciously offered commentary on the book, the products, and being a customer of mine! Do have a listen to The Weston A. Price Foundation’s “Wise Traditions” podcast with Host Holistic Hilda interviewing me about what we can learn from the French with regard to cooking and lifestyle. It was recorded pre-covid but is as relevant today as ever! Hear my two sponsored ads for my products, at the beginning of two of the The Weston A. Price Foundation’s Wise Traditions podcast: FIRST ad and SECOND ad during their health freedom series of podcasts.

Press Appearances

US Wellness Meats generously featured another recipe from The Bordeaux Kitchen book: Garlic & Rosemary Lamb (pictured above). This year, they have also featured my Spider Steak with Orange and Honey Glazed Pork Belly recipes from the book.


In March I escaped to France and back just before the curtain came down on international travel. I was in Antibes and made recipes with my longtime friend and chef, Tony Mellili, and the book that one of the recipes appeared in was just published: IT TAKES GUTS, by Ashleigh Vanhouten. The recipe (which I photographed in Antibes) is a Provençale Beef Cheek Stew, made with red wine. Délicieux!
