This book took me on an adventure around France by train, plane, bus, car and bike - at one point, I was even driving a minibus! Up winding roads and down dirt tracks, through howling wind, rain, snow, hail . . . you name it, I braved every kind of weather. I was a woman on a mission to discover those recipes, now long forgotten and stuffed in the back of a drawer, made by regional French grandmas. But not just the old recipes: I was interested to see what France looked like today. How was the younger generation eating? Each recipe is a postcard from my little kitchen to yours, savouring the flavours, smells and textures that inspired me, and that I hope will inspire you too. Bon voyage on my little culinary tour of France! I hope you enjoy the trip. Rachel x

The star of BBC2's The Little Paris Kitchen is back with her second book, this time based on giving classic French dishes from all over the country her trademark modern twists. Rachel Khoo became an overnight sensation when her first book and television series launched last year. Coveting her Parisian lifestyle, fashion sense and, more importantly, her accessible, delicious recipes cooked up in her tiny kitchen, the nation took her to their hearts and now they can receive second helpings. Taking her 'Little Paris Kitchen' on tour, Rachel is leaving the capital city to travel to the four corners of France in search of the very best recipes the country has to offer. From the snow-topped mountains and Christmas markets of Alsace to the winemaking region of the Dordogne, the dreamy vistas of Provence and the well-stocked larders of Brittany and Normandy, Rachel visits some of the best-known foodie places as well as uncovering some hidden gems to share with you. Recipes include: pork and clams with cider and butter beans, spicy aubergine sticks with couscous, baked figs with walnuts, beer-glazed ham hock, caramelized apple bake and spiced almond biscuits.

Say Bonjour to Green Cuisine—it’s the new French way to be healthy, happy, and stylish, bien sûr! No one does food and lifestyle like the French! That’s why the French approach to clean, green eating adds a dash of flair—or a drizzle of decadence—to even the humblest of fruits, veggies, and legumes. In this cheerful, charming cookbook, Rebecca Leffler shows you how they do it. She introduces her “best friend foods” like sweet potatoes and chia, whirlwinds through an entire rainbow of juices and smoothies, and keeps the focus on fitness, food, and fun in equal measures. Globally inspired, but with lots of French accents, all 150 plant-based recipes are free of gluten, soy, and refined sugar. Rebecca organizes them the natural way: by season. Feed your body what it needs during . . . Spring: Beet Rawvioli with Faux-mage, White Asparagus Velouté, Le “Chic” Cake Summer: Salade Niçoise, Cabinet Curry, “Split”-Second Banana Ice Cream Fall: Sobeautiful Soba Salad, Beauty Bourguignon, Pancrêpes, Apple Tarte Tatin Winter: Totally Wild Stuffed Squash, Amaranth Caviar, Happy Hazelnut Quinoa Bowl. Plus, enjoy Rebecca’s mood-boosting tips year round: natural beauty treatments, illustrated yoga poses, and positive playlists to sing along with as you peel, mince, and stir. Having to choose between pleasure and health is so last season. It’s time to say non to unhealthy foods and oui to color, flavor, variety, and smiles!

In a French Kitchen

She changed the seasoning but stuck with the garnish of cucumber and cornichon granité, which I applaud. This pleases everyone who tastes it. I often serve a Crémant de Bourgogne or a wine from Alsace with this lovely little appetizer.

A delightful celebration of French life and the cooks who turn even the simplest meals into an occasion Even before Susan Herrmann Loomis wrote her now-classic memoir, On Rue Tatin, American readers have been compelled by books about the French’s ease with cooking. With In a French Kitchen, Loomis—an expat who long ago traded her American grocery store for a bustling French farmer’s market—demystifies in lively prose the seemingly effortless je ne sais quoi behind a simple French meal. One by one, readers are invited to meet the busy people of Louviers and surrounding villages and towns of Loomis’s adopted home, from runway-chic Edith, who has zero passion for cooking—but a love of food that inspires her to whip up an array of mouthwatering dishes—to Nathalie, who becomes misty-eyed as she talks about her mother’s Breton cooking, then goes on to reproduce it. Through friends and neighbors like these, Loomis learns that delicious, even decadent meals don’t have to be complicated. Are French cooks better organized when planning and shopping? Do they have a greater ability to improvise with whatever they have on hand when unexpected guests arrive? The answer to both is: Yes. But they also have an innate understanding of food and cooking, are instinctively knowledgeable about seasonal produce, and understand what combination of simple ingredients will bring out the best of their gardens or local markets. Thankfully for American readers, In a French Kitchen shares the everyday French tips, secrets, and eighty-five recipes that allow them to turn every meal into a sumptuous occasion.
