Hi, I am Audrey.
I was born and raised in beautiful Brittany, in a small fisherman’s village on the Atlantic Coast of France, where crepes, madeleines and buttery treats were the essence of my days. Growing up, I would spend my evenings shadowing my mother in our little kitchen, preparing French gratins and quiches. I always had cooking and eating on my mind as a child. These things haven’t changed.
I spent the last decade travelling the world and living in different parts of the world, including Finland and Australia, before settling in Canada with my Italian-Canadian husband.
I am now a “French ex-pat”, living in Niagara, Ontario.
How did Pardon your French start?
France is the sound, taste and smell of my childhood, and very much still fills my life today. As I settled in Canada, I started to explore and document how to keep cooking, eating and living like a French, even outside of France.
I am always running through grocery aisles scoping for French products, buying every French cooking book I can get my hands on, and spend most of my evenings recreating classic French dishes.
And this how this blog came to life.
It came naturally that Pardon Your French would be the place where I share my love for French food with others, and document French recipes and French-focused stories from my kitchen and beyond.
Whether you are in France, are a French living outside of France or are just someone dreaming of cooking, eating and living like the French – I dedicate this blog to you.

I shoot all the photos on this blog and only shoot with natural light. For the studio sessions, I use a Nikon D7200 body with a Nikkor 50 mm f/1.8 as a main lens. And while out and about, I use a Nikon D5100 with a Tamron 16-300mm F/3.5-6.3 lens. I edit the photos with Photoshop.

And remember… It’s not all about French food, it’s about enjoying food, the French way.
