Series 1 - Episode 1

Review by:
Alison Graham

Croydon-born cook Rachel Khoo runs a table-for-two restaurant in her Paris studio flat. Every day she gets to work in her minuscule, well-stocked kitchen with its titchy cooker. In this new series Khoo announces: “I’m going to take the fear out of French cooking”.

She starts with croque madame muffins, before moving on to lamb in mint sauce, lemon sole fried in butter and special lemon curd madeleines. Khoo is a charming addition to the roster of TV chefs, and you will be entranced by that doll-sized kitchen, I promise.

About this programme

1/6. The pastry chef displays her passion and flair for the cuisine of Paris as she tries to prove that simple cooking can produce sensational results. In the first episode, she prepares her own take on a croque madame, makes a batch of madeleine cakes, shops in a Moroccan food market, and explores the French capital's rooftops to find honey created by Parisian bees.
