KITCHEN FRENCH by P.B. Lecron

If you're a kitchen-activity loving francophone, then why not sharpen your French language listening skills and learn some nifty cooking techniques at the same time? A French leader in online cooking demonstrations, 750 grammes.com, has lots of short, snappy video tutorials with easy to follow tips and recipes.


Un tuyeau: these videos are helpful because they show the best  ways to cut, chop and peel--even if you don't speak French!

To date, 750 grammes.com airs more than 135 free video tips and recipes clips on Daily Motion--the French equivalent to Youtube--so to help you get started, just click on any of these clips that I liked:

how to peel garlic
how to make a b├ęchamel
how to peel a lemon
how to segment a lemon
how to peel a turnip  (Yes, you'd be surprised!)
how to make meringues
how to make vinaigrette
how to make taboule

Vocabulary
un tuyeau: here, a tip; also pipe
