Around My French Table

More Than 300 Recipes From My Home to Yours

Overview

From the publisher

When Julia Child told Dorie Greenspan, “You write recipes just the way I do,” she paid her the ultimate compliment. Child’s praise was echoed by the New York Times and the Los Angeles Times, which referred to Greenspan’s “wonderfully encouraging voice” and “the sense of a real person who is there to help should you stumble.”

A big, personal, and personable book, Around My French Table captures all the excitement of French home cooking, sharing the disarmingly simple dishes Greenspan 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.
