The Intouchables
  • Parisian Salad
  • Crepes

‘Les Intouchables’ came out the same year as ‘The Artist’, but although a more memorable movie, it received far less attention on this side of the atlantic.  It is a surprisingly touching (see what I did there) french film, about two men who have very little in common but end up becoming inseparable. To go with the movie we prepared some simple French dishes, quick and delicious. Enjoy!
