The beauty of Chocolate & Zucchini — other than the gorgeous photographs of food — is that it is written by a food fan, not a critic. The site’s Parisian author, Clotilde Dusoulier, brings an unbridled love of her subject to her writing (available in French and English). Dusoulier is here to explore more than just food; she tackles the food of life — the intersection of food, culture, family, and friends. But what truly sets Chocolate & Zucchini apart is how Dusoulier lets us into her home and life to share her food experiences with us. Eating is a communal experience, and Dusoulier gives us more than just recipes; she shares her experiences with those recipes, such as her friends’ reactions and why she chose the recipes in the first place. Her blog encourages you to make food more than just something you eat: make it a part of your life.
