~ Alice Medrich shares her favorite technique for melting chocolate.

~ A photo series depicting bread illustrating this article (in French) in M Le Monde.

~ How hipsters ruined Paris, and all the ways people disagree with that op-ed, including this rebuttal: For Whom the Kale Tolls.

~ The cult of the French pastry chef.

~ Are food blogs helping or hurting your waistline?

~ Where to find independent farmers in Paris?

~ Why do female chefs get overlooked?

~ And yet: the new generation of female French chefs (in French).
