Being a lover of French culture and cuisine, this special Tuesday post is inspired by Karen Wheeler’s third memoir, Tout Soul and today’s Q&A with her on Little Maison. Karen Wheeler is a former fashion editor and the author of three memoirs of her life in France. She also provides regular updates on her blog www.toutsweet.net and on Twitter.
One of Karen’s favorite French meals is steak with a side of french mustard and chips or as the French say: bavette et pomme frites. This is a classic French dish, with beef cuts such as hangar (onglet) and flank (bavette) primarily used. Many of the steaks are served with caramelized shallots (échalottes) in a red wine sauce or French mustard.
