mamangerie – you can read it as ma mangerie, my eatery, or as a fusion of the French words maman, mummy, and manger, to eat – was born in 2014, when cooking for a growing family was about to take more and more room in my life. Having spent my childhood in Germany just a few minutes away from the French border, I´ve always had a soft spot for French lifestyle and cooking which was the starting point for this humble blog. Other than that, it catalyzed the decision to move to France in 2015 with my husband and our two little kids.
Now that we´ve lived in a small town overviewing Paris for something over a year, my cooking has become “Frenchier” than ever (though my German soul sometimes wins over and we´ll have Schnitzel 3 times in a row). I adore the French dedication to food and produce, and try to learn and adopt as much as I can. Inspiration comes from many places: a delicious feast at a cozy bistrot, a trip to the market, the weekly changing list of plats du jour (meals of the day), handwritten on a chalkboard at the traiteur shop I pass by every day when bringing my son to school.
In France, the next best gourmandise is always waiting just around the corner.
