Best cookbook I will ever own!
I was taken into the French farm world with is magnificent book. One of the best! It is divided by season with enchanting tales of her life, French food and people accompanied by the most beautiful pictures I have ever laid my eyes on or ever will!!
Yesterday my mother, a friend and I sat down and had a delightful hour of gazing at the beautiful pictures! My mother kept saying " You should have given this to me for my birthday!"
This is a very recent cookbook that just came out this month! Already I have a long list of satisfying recipes to try and today we will have chicken, garlic soup, potatoes and vegetables. I truly enjoyed her stories of food, people, and life in the French countryside. Her husband’s beautiful photography not only augmented her stories but transported me to MedoChou farçi
You really must take a look at her blog as it is a taste of what her cookbook is! http://mimithorisson.com/
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.
I must say that I took a walk in her garden with the authur their 7 chidlren and 14 dogs and longed with a new pssion to visit France! Go to Amazon ( http://www.amazon.com/Kitchen-France-Year-Cooking-Farmhouse/dp/080418559X/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1414848694&sr=8-1&keywords=A+Kitchen+in+France+by+Mimi+Thorisson) to download a few really yummy looking recipes such as mushroom tarts and vegetable tian
When one thinks of France we think exotic recipes such as Snail ( there is one such recipe in this book) and dishes which are more on look then taste but this cookbook will blow you away, These dishes can and must be made in American kitchens.This book is truly gorgeous. It is worthy of the coffee table but will be used in the kitchen . Lets go make
chocolate tart. Oh wait a minute I must read yet another page of this book for I am being drawn into world like non other.
I received this book from Blogging for Books for this review."
