Welcome to Franco Foods! 

The Franco-American Centre (FAC)/ Alliance Française de Manchester’s YouTube Cooking Channel.  The series is hosted by Nathalie Hirte; avid home cook and baker, and the office manager of the FAC.  

Franco Foods is dedicated to discovering the World of the French-inspired food and culture one bite at a time. From the foods we grew up with in North America, the foods of France and other European countries, to the lesser known connection with exotic countries such as Morocco, Lebanon, Senegal. To the surprising revelations from countries such as Vietnam and Mali. Franco Foods strives to celebrate not simply the variety of foods, but also the culture, history and personal stories that go with the foods in our lives.

Born in the province of Quebec, Nathalie learned to cook alongside her mother.  She helped her to prepare the traditional Quebec foods (tourtière, cretons, pouding chômeur, etc.) and proudly shares those with Franco Foods viewers.  Along with discovering new foods with us.  Nathalie enjoys the journey and is not afraid to show her failures as well as her successes.  “If my mistakes can save someone else from making those mistakes, it’s worth it.  Besides, it’s all in good fun!”.
