Jacqueline in Paris – A Book Review

2M ago
I am a big reader. I always have been. From my earliest days, I’ve loved books. As a result, our house is full of books. My devices are full of books. And I honestly can’t imagine my life without reading at least a few pages of a book every single day. These days, I mostly […] The post Jacqueline in Paris – A Book Review appeared first on Distant Francophile ..read more

Long time readers will know how much I adore French style. There’s nothing more fun for me than setting myself up for a little bit of style spotting. And this trip was no exception. Thankfully I had plenty of opportunities to watch the world go by – and I was very excited by what I […] The post Packing For The South Of France – Some Wins & A Big Fail appeared first on Distant Francophile ..read more

So, Scotty left me to my own devices the other day and I managed to book us a trip to the French Riviera! Like so many of us, we’ve not travelled to France since 2019 – back in the pre-pandemic times. I would never have thought that when we flew home from France that last […] The post Why We’re Choosing To Head Back To The French Riviera appeared first on Distant Francophile ..read more

A Lesson In French Style And Standards
Distant Francophile
by Janelle
9M ago
Whether I was ready or not, whether I actually wanted them or not, I was about to learn two lessons. One would be a lesson in French style and the other in the French understanding of appropriateness. The sales assistant wouldn’t have had it any other way.  I’d come to the obvious conclusion that I […] The post A Lesson In French Style And Standards appeared first on Distant Francophile ..read more

The Ultimate Paris Address Book – A Book Review

The thing I love the most about creating Distant Francophile is all the fabulous francophiles I’ve met over the years. And one of my favourite fellow francophiles is the very fabulous Jo Karnaghan. I first introduced you to Jo in episode two of The Franco-Files. Jo is the very clever founder of frugal first class travel.

If you’d been staking out our Melbourne home over the past month or so, apart from being extremely bored, you would likely have come to two realisations. Firstly, Scotty and I have led very dull lives during lockdown. And secondly we’ve recently had lots and lots of books delivered. I’ve always loved anything to do […] The post À Table – A Book Review appeared first on Distant Francophile ..read more

Travel Planning – Roman Sites In France
Distant Francophile
by Janelle
1y ago
‘What have the Romans ever done for us?’ So went the classic and much quoted line from Monty Python’s Life of Brian. The characters went on to name any number of things the Romans had done.  But I feel like they missed one of the more important things the ancient Romans delivered. And that’s the […] The post Travel Planning – Roman Sites In France appeared first on Distant Francophile ..read more

Master A French Classic – Slow Roasted Duck Legs

Duck. In my mind it’s so French. You’ll see it on menus all over France. And it’s the ideal ingredient to cook with when you want to Frenchify your day. But, here’s the thing about duck. It’s not the easiest poultry to work with. It has a reputation for being both a touch fancy and […] The post Master A French Classic – Slow Roasted Duck Legs appeared first on Distant Francophile ..read more

In the words of the renowned story-teller Meatloaf…. ‘I remember every little thing as if it happened only yesterday…’ I’m talking about the day that we decided to go to France. Scotty finally agreed to travel to France.  I’d been working on becoming a Francophile for around 7 years by then.
