You guys know I just love my cookbooks. French Country Cooking: Meals and Moments from A Village in the Vineyards is more than just a cookbook – it’s a beautifully illustrated trip through the French countryside, with so many engaging stories to give historical flavor to the recipes inside.
The publisher’s blurb:
What I thought of the book:
I have long been a fan of Julia Child. Mom would watch her show each week, and I am lucky enough that she gave me her copy of Mastering the Art of French Cooking, complete with fingerprints and butter stains. When I was given the chance to try out this book, I jumped at it, and I can say there has definitely been no disappointment! This book is put together with love and artistic flair. It is simply lovely to look through, interesting to read the different stories, and the recipes are easy to follow, even for someone with very little experience in French cooking. The ingredients are listed with both metric and Imperial measurements, so no having to convert and wonder if you did it correctly!
If you have a lover of culinary arts on your gift list, or someone who is a complete francophile, or even someone who would love to try out new things in the kitchen, this would be a perfect gift. Of course, don’t forget yourself!
