With anticipated excitement, Sondra Bernstein's second book Plats du Jour; the girl & the fig's Journey Through the Seasons in Wine Country really takes you on a Sonoma journey. The book features over 125 full color photographs and over 100 wine country recipes. These are recipes from the beloved wine Country Destination restaurant in Sonoma that have been tailored for the home cook with easy ingredient substitutions, wine pairings and cheese platter suggestions and more. Since the publication of the first book in 2004, different aspects in the girl & the fig world have evolved. One of the changes that has been introduced is a wine country take on the concept of Plats du Jour, a set weekly menu that includes a starter, main course, and dessert or cheese course. The Plats du Jour concept began as an innovative way to offer our guests a great value utilizing the very best of the season. Plats du jour is a very traditional concept in France dating back to the 1800 s when restaurants served only one meal each day. (It literally means plate of the day. ) Each year the restaurant creates 52 new, three-course seasonal menus to show off the best of what s available in Sonoma County at that time. In the book, Plats du Jour, the menus are distilled down into a more manageable 28 menus for the home cook. The Plats du Jour menus are an ingredient tour through the year. The 28 three-course menus are arranged by season, and include a cheese pairing for each menu. While set menus are introduced, there is plenty of opportunity for creativity. You can mix and match the recipes from various menus according to your taste. The menus simply give you a chance to plan ahead for a dinner party or family gathering. All of the recipes serve six people, allowing for a weekend dinner party or a weekday dinner with a day or two of delicious leftovers. This stays true to Sondra's philosophy that friends and family should gather over a great meal! Aside from the wide range of recipes, Sondra fills the book with stories about some of the restaurant's cherished producers and interesting tidbits about ingredients and life in Sonoma. As one might expect from a book originating from Sonoma, there is wonderful information about the unique Rhone grape varietals that are featured at the girl & the fig. Each recipe offers wine suggestions that will entice any palate. The book is generous with resources, contact information and especially gorgeous photographs that show off Sonoma Wine Country in such a way, that you may find yourself visiting before you realize.

There is more than a slight malaise in the air these days about French food and cooking. While the rest of the world delights in the intricacies of molecular gastronomy and even Britain is revelling in a culinary renaissance, in France the years of worship at the temple of the great god Michelin seem to have blinded them to change and evolution. Why is this? What is it about the French that causes them to be so blinkered about their food? Plats du Jour is an attempt to answer that question, as William Black explores the highways and byways of French cooking. Taking as his starting point the great tradition of French food, William tackles years of received wisdom and parochial food snobbery head on, though with his mind (and his mouth) firmly open... He eats tête de veau and fried cow's udder with his French wife's family near Orléans. He samples the dubious (and illegal) delights of ortolan in the south west and has the most painfully disappointing gastronomic experience of his life. He combs the beaches of Brittany for seafood and is chased away from a festival by an enraged Basque villager. His dedication to the culinary cause knows few bounds. Plats du Jour is a book which the French aren't going to like very much. That said, it's a highly entertaining and irreverent look at the world's greatest culinary tradition which will be required reading for anyone with an interest in food and cooking...

This book is perhaps the jewel in Prospect's crown. Within a few months of its first appearance in 1986 it was hailed as a modern classic. Fiona MacCarthy wrote in The Times that, 'the book is a large and grandiose life history, a passionate narrative of extremes of experience.' Jeremy Round called Patience Gray 'the high priestess of cooking', whose book 'pushes the form of the cookery book as far as it can go.' Angela Carter remarked that 'it was less a cookery book that a summing-up of the genre of the late-modern British cookery book.' The work has attracted a cult following in the United States, where passages have been read out at great length on the radio; and it has been anthologized by Paul Levy in The Penguin Book of Food and Drink. It was given a special award by the Andr� Simon Book Prize committee in 1987.

Aujourd’hui encore la plus grande partie de l’humanité ne se soucie pas de nouveauté culinaire. L’idée même de ne pas rattacher à la tradition cet acte si fondamental et symbolique peut paraître inconcevable. Cette notion n’a même concerné qu’une frange de la population jusqu’à récemment. Ce qui ne laisse pas d’étonner quand on constate comme elle est aujourd’hui inhérente à nos comportements alimentaires. Cette histoire débute en France, au milieu du XVIIe siècle. La cuisine devient, dès le début du XVIIIe siècle, objet de spéculations intellectuelles qui l’entraînent sur le terrain de l’esthétique, discipline qui naît au même moment. Le restaurant lui offre un lieu où peut se former un public. Le XIXe siècle, quant à lui, voit apparaître la notion du cuisinier créateur qui s’épanouit à partir de l’entre-deux-guerres et triomphe avec la Nouvelle Cuisine. Libérant les cuisiniers de toute référence à une quelconque tradition et les sommant d’être inventifs, elle est, avec la globalisation, la cause principale du développement mondial de la cuisine et de l’apparition, ici et là, de grandes cuisines nationales. Aujourd’hui, le débat autour de la cuisine semble se réduire bien souvent à des questions d’esthétique. En ce sens, le courant moderniste, incarné par ce que l’on a appelé « cuisine moléculaire », a accentué cette tendance. Est-ce la fin de la gourmandise ? Face à un cuisinier devenu omniprésent et quelque peu autocrate, les « gastronomes » doivent s’interroger sur leurs pratiques, afin de mieux percer les secrets de leur gourmandise et pouvoir, alors, la revendiquer bien fort.
