Student Cookbook [in partnership with Currys and Joe Blogs]


Today I’m back with some good news involving a lovely project that’s going to come to life soon and that I’ve really enjoyed working at and taking part into.

A couple weeks ago, I was contacted by Shaun, the outreach specialist of Joe Blogsthe blogger network I am also part of.

So… Joe Blogs is working with Currys (Currys is a British electrical retailer operating in the UK and Ireland. It specialises in selling home electronics and household appliances) to create a student cookbook and they asked me to get involved if I was interested. And you can guess… as a proper French person, I absolutely and without any excuses would have been able to say no to something implying gastronomy.  So I said yes and agreed to share 3 of my best student recipes in this blogpost.

One of the three recipes below (or maybe the three of them… I don’t know :/ ! Let’s just think crazy :p!) that I’m about to share with you will form a part of a digital cookbook destined for new and existing students. The plan is to get the cookbook live in early September so that the new students and pre-existing ones, plus anyone else (like Shaun apparently, according to his emails ^^) interested in quick student meals can have a good look at it.

The cookbook itself will be hosted on the Currys website and available as a downloadable PDF which I will be featured in :D. My blog and I will be mentioned and linked to by Currys and also promoted through their social media channels, which they currently have over 480k Facebook fans and over 47k Twitter followers. So as you can see, it’s a very nice and great opportunity I honestly couldn’t miss :D!

The three student recipes I want to suggest are all very quick and easy and, as you’ll see, also perfectly healthy! The first one is the recipe I chose to entitle Something as simple as raspberry jam, yoghurt and granola, and the two others are two salads (I love making salads – all kinds of salads. I love inventing new salad recipes and the two ones I’m suggesting here are some of my most recent ones ^^) I called the Sea salad and the Southern flavoured salad.

But enough babbling, this is serious business so let’s make room for the recipes!

Something as simple as raspberry jam, yoghurt and granola 



Something as simple as raspberry jam, yoghurt and granola 


  • * 1 plain yoghurt
  • * 3 tbsp of raspberry jam
  • * 1-2 tbsp of granola (I personally used the Special K granola with cranberries, pumpkin seeds and almonds)
  • * 3 fresh raspberries to decorate your dessert


  1. Choose any container you fancy to prepare your yummy and healthy snack (I decided to recycle a Bonne Maman jam jar).
  2. Put your 3 tbsp of raspberry jam at the bottom of the jar.
  3. Add your plain yoghurt.
  4. Sprinkle some granola on the top and now, place your 3 fresh raspberries to decorate your jar.
  5. And not to forget… Enjoy!
