Item Details

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 the New 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.

This is a wide repertoire of simple-yet-elegant modern French food, including a few items inspired by other cultures. Beautiful to look at and good reading, even if you don't ever take knife to board.

As always, I love books that have recipes that are naturally gluten free, or easily adapted. This is one of those. Dorie Greenspan is a wonderful cookbook writer.

It all just sounds so delicious that I could read this book instead of eat. I recommend the cheddar crackers.

Just started going through this cookbook and I am enjoying it. The recipes seem to be clearly written and will be easy enough to try.
