Following on from my market shopping tips, now it’s time for more ideas inspired by my travels around regional France researching my new book (‘My Little French Kitchen’ is due out on October 10).

If you have been following my blog, Instagram, Twitter, Facebook, you name it, you might have noticed I have been on a whirlwind tour of the US and Canada, visiting New York, Boston, Toronto and Chicago over the last two weeks.

This post comes to you from the Big Apple. Leaving Europe behind for a couple of weeks, I touched down in sticky NYC on none other than 4th July to be greeted by 33 degree heat and a prime view of the Empire State Building from my room at the Ace Hotel.
