Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

When Julia Child told Dorie Greenspan, “You write recipes just the way I do,” she paid her the ultimate compliment. Julias praise was echoed by the New York Times and the Los Angeles Times, which referred to Dories “wonderfully encouraging voice” and “the sense of a real person who is there to help should you stumble.”
 
Now in a big, personal, and personable book, Dorie captures all the excitement of French home cooking, sharing disarmingly simple dishes she has gathered over years of living in France.

Around My French Table includes many superb renditions of the great classics: a glorious cheese-domed onion soup, a spoon-tender beef daube, and the “top-secret” chocolate mousse recipe that every good Parisian cook knows—but wont reveal.
 
Hundreds of other recipes are remarkably easy: a cheese and olive quick bread, a three-star chefs Basque potato tortilla made with a surprise ingredient (potato chips), and an utterly satisfying roast chicken for “lazy people.”
 
Packed with lively stories, memories, and insider tips on French culinary customs, Around My French Table will make cooks fall in love with France all over again, or for the first time.

Review:

"Acclaimed writer and baking wizard Greenspan, author of the James Beard Award-winning Baking, celebrates French home cooking in this noteworthy and visually stunning collection. A part-time Paris resident for more than a decade, Greenspan focuses on what French people really eat at home: easy-to-prepare yet flavorful dishes that are suitable for just about any time of day. From Bacon and Eggs and Asparagus Salad to Chicken in a Pot to Veal Chops with Rosemary Butter, her offerings are hardy, mostly uncomplicated, and superbly appetizing. She also provides sidebars on a wide range of topics, including whether or not to wash raw chicken, several ways of cooking beets, mussels, and more. She offers variations on classic dishes such as Pot-au-Feu, including recipes for seafood and veggie versions that take minutes instead of hours. Recipes include advice on storing leftovers as well as serving information. The chapter on vegetables and grains is particularly welcome, with delectable gratins, lentil, and rice dishes as well as a baby bok choy and sugar snap dish that will make hard-core carnivores drool. A feast for the eyes and palate alike, this superb collection belongs in every foodie's kitchen. Photos. (Oct.)" Publishers Weekly (Starred Review) (Copyright PWyxz LLC)

I'm part of a group of bloggers making all the recipes in this book, so I've already made nearly a dozen of them, and every one came out exactly as the book said. I find that truly remarkable. The recipes are easy to follow, use easy-to-find ingredients, and make my family happy, so what could be better? Greenspan's writing is so warm and inviting, to match the food.

I already love this cookbook. It's large and beautiful, and the text and photos are both gorgeous. So far, I've only made one of the recipes -- the gougeres, or cheese puffs -- but it was dead easy and delicious, so I'm happy to be participating in a blog event where we'll cook through the whole book together (frenchfridayswithdorie.com; they didn't pay me to say that). Yum.
