“Eat my words, the world’s best food blog” The Observer Food Monthly

“Not some wronger-than-wrong fusion cooking site, but a blog (in English) built around the twin culinary passions of its 27-year-old Parisian writer, Clotilde Dusoulier: fresh, healthy eating and, well, the magical dark stuff. It is real escapist, drool-on-your-keyboard stuff as Dusoulier drifts around Paris on a waft of sugar-scented air, stumbling across delicious delicacies.” The Guardian

“You can just see Audrey Tautou playing her in the movie as she traipses all over Paris, finding the bakery supply store that her grandmother shopped at, eating out, cooking and writing down recipes and shopping tips along with insights into French life.” Los Angeles Times

Many of the ingredients used in Chocolate & Zucchini are available online from Merchant Gourmet.
