In the land of champagne and croissants, you sometimes have to take the good with the ... doggy poop. And find the little things that count, such as free organic wine - one of my favourites in this roundup of the best little surprises about Parisian life.
It's not all chocolate eclairs and croque-en-bouches, you know. Make like the French and whip up this 3 ingredient, classic cake that takes no more than 10 minutes of your precious champagne-guzzling time. You can thank me later.
This Christmas I'm ditching the prawns on the barbie and Aussie "bubbles" for chestnut-stuffed rooster and real French champagne. But I'm throwing in a cheeky "up yours" to french tradition with these fair-dinkum Weet-bix rum balls. Add some balls to your Christmas!
If Paris is the city of love, this cake is the ultimate food of love ... to be devoured slowly and with eyes closed in rapturous delight. Satiate even gluten-free and vegetarian lovers with this recipe.
