We're were excited to have Manon join us in the SideChef kitchen and share with us her manifesto for all things food!
I like to do rather large portions! It means that one dinner prep also makes lunch for two! I like to order weekly seasonal fruits and vegetable delivery, so I have plenty of basics to plan my weekly meals around.
To me, cooking is also relaxing. I know it will probably take me about one hour to make dinner, and that’s ok! I believe the more you are relaxed about the time you have, the less pressure and more enjoyable the cooking will be!
Not at all! I have such a varied agenda and often out for events in the evening, and sometimes at home for lunch, it is difficult for me to plan. I always have a filled pantry and some vegetables around, which helps.
Salt & pepper, garlic, butter, canned tomatoes.
I get fruit & vegetable delivered every 2 weeks (the goods are recycled from waste as they can’t be sold in supermarkets because of their size, shape, etc.). I go to the big supermarket in town for pantry essentials and buy meat from the butcher for special occasions.
I always have a main and dessert for dinner and this is my favorite time of a weekday. Lunch will depend on the day, I might be at home and often have a salad or some rearranged leftovers. Breakfast and brunch are my favorite weekend meals!
Weirdly, I don’t necessarily have breakfast during the week. I always have a coffee, homemade from my Italian mocha machine. But I never miss it during weekends and it is a much bigger English-style meal.
French-inspired and mostly very simple! But I also love to cook Mexican, Italian, and Greek-flavored dishes. I don’t eat meat at home during the week, so it will contain a lot of cheese, but no meat or fish.
French food made easy.
