Beautifully illustrated and written with enticing recipes that will lure you into the kitchen and inspire you to entertain family and friends.
Does that sound like a tall order for a cookbook? Certainly.
But A Kitchen in France by Mimi Thorisson truly delivers on the promise of its beautiful cover. It is a large book, filled with sumptuous photos taken by the author’s husband. The pictures are filled with images of beautifully prepared food, but also of the Thorisson’s young children and the their new home in Medoc, France.
You will truly feel as if you have traveled to Medoc, shopped at the local farmer’s market, headed seaside for the freshest seafood, or to a cozy cafe for an espresso.
The book is arranged in seasonally inspired menus, so guidance is provided in planning a meal from the plethora of recipes. As for the recipes I can’t wait to try:
Chilled White Peaches in White Wine Syrup
Roquefort and Walnut Gougeres
Mustard Roasted Chicken
I have a feeling this book is going to be the source of many upcoming dinner parties in my home.
P.S. I received a free copy of this cookbook from Blogging for Books.com in exchange for an honest review.
