Leslie Ray, an American photographer living in Aix, has been blogging for years – have a look at her site on http://lafourchette.blogspot.com.

Her blog reflects her daily life and always illustrated with interesting photographs.

Plus: She has been posting a recipe each week for some time so has a good archive of tested recipes.
