This week, as my husband was visiting France anyway, I decided to opt for a very traditional French recipe: coq au vin! Read on to find out about a few minor translation challenges and the obstacles I face cooking a cockerel!

#ThatTranslatorCanCook Week Fifteen: Steak Tartare
This week, despite the inclement weather, thanks to Storm Ciara, I decided to try something simple, refreshing and tasty.
#ThatTranslatorCanCook Week Thirteen: Victoria Sponge Cake
This week I thought I’d try something a little different for #ThatTranslatorCanCook and opted for a traditionally British recipe but in French! I thought it might be interesting to see how the recipe differs from a British version of the same recipe.
My Work Goals for 2020
The beginning of a new year (and a new decade!) is the perfect time to set some goals. I have written some personal ones on my personal blog that you can see here, but here are my goals for my translation business for the next year:

#ThatTranslatorCanCook Week Seven: Croissant!
This week, I decided to try a French staple…croissants! And I was fairly pleased with the results! Overall, they turned out well, but if I were to make them again, I’d need to tweak the recipe for our oven (more on that later…)

#ThatTranslatorCanCook Week Four: Beaver Tails
This week, I decided to draw inspiration from another French-speaking country I have travelled to: Canada!
