In late 2009 we received a friendly email from a French lady called Anne-Laure Ropars inviting us to have a look at her new recipe blog. Now we get lots of those every week, but when we set eyes on the Tasty Diaries, we knew we had found a kindred spirit.
Tasty Diaries is a free weekly newsletter written by Anne-Laure, a real foodie who lives in London with her beautiful Anglo-French family. Hailed by the Times as “… charming and inspiring… a weekly missive of kitchen tips and colourful, seasonal recipes…”, it simply arrives in your inbox every Thursday with exciting, simple and nutritious recipe ideas for the week to come.
Anne-Laure’s food philosophy is that home cooking is always best, but it has to fit around today’s families hectic lifestyle. This is why she features “workweek recipes” that are always quick and straightforward to make. Her inspiration comes from traditional and modern French family cooking, books, old magazines and other blogs. Anne-Laure also regularly invites Michelin starred chefs to create weekend menus for Tasty Diaries, which she cooks herself to show that it can be done by a ‘normal’ person and then makes it accessible to everyone.
