Around My French Table : More Than 300 Recipes from My Home to Yours (Hardcover) (Dorie Greenspan)
about this item
When Julia Child told Dorie Greenspan, “You write recipes just the way I do,” she paid her the ultimate compliment. Julia’s praise was echoed by theNew York Times and the Los Angeles Times, which referred to Dorie’s “wonderfully encouraging voice” and “the sense of a real person who is there to help should you stumble.”
Now in a big, personal, and personable book, Dorie captures all the excitement of French home cooking, sharing disarmingly simple dishes she has gathered over years of living in France.
Around My French Table includes many superb renditions of the great classics: a glorious cheese-domed onion soup, a spoon-tender beef daube, and the “top-secret” chocolate mousse recipe that every good Parisian cook knows—but won’t reveal.
Hundreds of other recipes are remarkably easy: a cheese and olive quick bread, a three-star chef’s Basque potato tortilla made with a surprise ingredient (potato chips), and an utterly satisfying roast chicken for “lazy people.”
Packed with lively stories, memories, and insider tips on French culinary customs,Around My French Table will make cooks fall in love with France all over again, or for the first time.
In a book with more than 100 full-color photos, a James Beard Award winner offers personable recipes for French home cooking, including a simple roast chicken, a Basque potato tortilla, a glorious cheese-domed onion soup, a cheese and olive quick bread, a "top secret" chocolate mousse and many more.
