A captivating journey to off-the-beaten-path French wine country with 100 simple yet exquisite recipes, 150 sumptuous photographs, and stories inspired by life in a small village “Francophiles, this book is pure Gallic food porn.” —The Wall Street Journal Readers everywhere fell in love with Mimi Thorisson, her family, and their band of smooth fox terriers through her blog, Manger, and debut cookbook, A Kitchen in France. In French Country Cooking, the family moves to an abandoned old château in Médoc. While shopping for local ingredients, cooking, and renovating the house, Mimi meets the farmers and artisans who populate the village and learns about the former owner of the house, an accomplished local cook. Here are recipes inspired by this eccentric cast of characters, including White Asparagus Soufflé, Wine Harvest Pot au Feu, Endives with Ham, and Salted Butter Chocolate Cake. Featuring evocative photographs taken by Mimi’s husband, Oddur Thorisson, and illustrated endpapers, this cookbook is a charming jaunt to an untouched corner of France that has thus far eluded the spotlight. — Los Angeles Times: Best Cookbooks of Fall 2016

With beguiling recipes and sumptuous photography, A Kitchen in France transports readers to the French countryside and marks the debut of a captivating new voice in cooking. "This is real food: delicious, honest recipes that celebrate the beauty of picking what is ripe and in season, and capture the essence of life in rural France." —Alice Waters When Mimi Thorisson and her family moved from Paris to a small town in out-of-the-way Médoc, she did not quite know what was in store for them. She found wonderful ingredients—from local farmers and the neighboring woods—and, most important, time to cook. Her cookbook chronicles the family’s seasonal meals and life in an old farmhouse, all photographed by her husband, Oddur. Mimi’s convivial recipes—such as Roast Chicken with Herbs and Crème Fraîche, Cèpe and Parsley Tartlets, Winter Vegetable Cocotte, Apple Tart with Orange Flower Water, and Salted Butter Crème Caramel—will bring the warmth of rural France into your home.

From easy weeknight meals to more elaborate Sunday dinners, learn the recipes and cooking style from the "other" French cuisine---the one that forms the foundation of the Mediterranean diet and celebrates local, fresh and light. Cuisine NiCoise is designed with olive oil, rather than butter and cream; is light, rather than bathed in rich sauces. And it uses fresh, locally sourced produce. Hillary Davis---food writer, cooking instructor, creator of the popular food blog MarchE Dimanche, and resident of the NiCoise area for over eleven years---introduces us to Cuisine NiCoise the cooking from the south of France, from the region surrounding the city of Nice, in her compelling new cookbook. Filled with information, tips, stories and recipes---Cuisine NiCoise is a complete guide with more than 100 recipes and gorgeous color photographs. Praise for Cuisine NiCoise: "Bright colors, sun-splashed days, fun, sybaritic pleasures--Hillary Davis captures on the plate everything delightful we associate with Nice. This food is extraordinarily fresh, delicious, and a feast for the eye as well. What a joy to be able to bring the good life into your own kitchen!" --Frances Mayes, best-selling author, Under The Tuscan Sun, The Tuscan Sun Cookbook "I am impressed! Hillary Davis has a unique perspective on cooking for which she makes a persuasive case in her new book. She believes that we learn how to cook not just from books but also from family, friends, restaurants, markets, and even from the dishes our food is served upon and the pots in which it's cooked." ---Paula Wolfert, best-selling author, The Cooking of Southwest France, The Food of Morocco "With this ode to NiCoise cooking, put together lovingly by Hillary Davis, you will bathe in the aromas of the NiCoise countryside, from the warm pungency of wild herbs, to the sweet, fresh melons and peaches at farmers' markets dotted throughout the countryside. Ms. Davis fell in love with the hilltop village of Bar-Sur-Loup, where she lived, cooked, ate and absorbed all that was around her. In Cuisine NiCoise she has made liberal use of everything she experienced and tasted; she has filled the book with tips and traditions; she has opened up a sun-kissed world for all to share. All of it will make you want to hop on an airplane and land in the center of the NiCoise countryside, at a table set for lunch! Photos by Steven Rothfeld make the book come alive with color. Bravo!" ---Susan Herrmann Loomis, author of On Rue Tatin "I think this book might just be the next best thing to living on the French Riviera! It is more than just a beautiful book filled with glorious tales and remarkable recipes. It is a love story of food, tradition and culture."---Monica Bhide, author Modern Spice: Inspired Indian Flavors for the Contemporary Kitchen "Her recipes are simple and appealing, evidence of her love for the food and customs of this very special place." --Michele Scicolone, best-selling author The Mediterranean Slow Cooker, The French Slow Cooker, The Italian Slow Cooker, 1000 Italian Recipes Hillary Davis "take a bow!!" --Monica Bhide

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.

The debut cookbook from The Cook’s Atelier—the international culinary destination and cooking school in Burgundy—is a beautifully photographed resource on classic French cuisine and an atmospheric chronicle of a family’s life in a charming French village. Mother and daughter American expats Marjorie Taylor and Kendall Smith Franchini always dreamed of living in France. With a lot of hard work and a dash of fate, they realized this dream and cofounded The Cook’s Atelier, a celebrated French cooking school in the storybook town of Beaune, located in the heart of the Burgundy wine region. Combining their professional backgrounds in food and wine, they attract visitors from near and far with their approachable, convivial style of cooking. Featuring more than 100 market-inspired recipes and 300 exceptional photographs, this comprehensive reference is an extension of their cooking school, providing a refreshingly simple take on French techniques and recipes that every cook should know—basic butchery, essential stocks and sauces, pastry, dessert creams and sauces, and preserving, to name a few. Seasonal menus build on this foundation, collecting recipes that showcase their fresh, vegetable-focused versions of timeless French dishes, such as: Green Garlic Soufflé Watermelon and Vineyard Peach Salad Little Croques Madames Sole Meunière with Beurre Blanc and Parsleyed Potatoes Seared Duck Breast with Celery Root Puree and Chanterelles Madeleines Plum Tarte Tatin Almond-Cherry Galette Stories of food and life in the village and the unique atmosphere of the atelier accent this personal cookbook. We can almost hear the clanking of the copper pots, the hiss of the vintage espresso machine, and the merriment around the table, as we meet some of the region’s best small farmers and artisanal producers and experience how Marjorie and Kendall’s family works together to create this special place. More than a practical introduction to classic French cooking, this richly illustrated volume is also a distinctively designed celebration of the French art of joie de vivre and an inspirational primer on adopting elements of the French lifestyle, no matter where you live.

"There's no one better to offer instruction on how to use the most essential, versatile item in your kitchen." [Grub Street] The cast-iron skillet has been a humble workhorse used for generations to crisp bacon perfectly and fry chicken; now use it to turn out tender scones, cakes, and breads. A curious home cook, Charlotte Druckman has figured out every trick for this versatile pan. Heat the skillet for a few minutes, add some butter to sizzle, and you can brown cheesy arepas, get a crunchy crust on a kimchi-topped hoecake, or blister naan right on the stovetop. Or preheat the pan in the oven and you’re ready to bake no-knead pizza, the gooiest sticky buns, and even a cornflake-milk layer cake. With beautiful photographs, tips for seasoning cast iron, and info on collecting vintage pieces, this book makes cooking so much fun that your skillet will never see the cupboard.
