A Love Letter to Dorie Greenspan For Around My French Table11:02 am
In the last months, one that's been receiving a lot of attention is Around My French Table by Dorie Greenspan.
There are a lot of new cookbooks that get a lot of praise, but I knew this one was worth it when food store owners, home cooks and professional chefs were saying how much they got from it. That to me is a sign that it can work for everyone from novice to pro.
And in case you have the notion that French food is difficult to make, laden with fat and extremely heavy on the palate, this book is about to change that.
I don't know how Dorie makes French food finally seem so accessible and unintimidating, but she does.On her website she writes:
These are just some of the reasons Around My French Table is an must-have in your cookbook collection (I didn't even get to the sections on Fish & Shellfish, Vegetables & Grains and Desserts - I thought I'd leave a few surprises for you to discover on your own!).
