Pampille's Table: Recipes and Writings from the French Countryside from Marthe Daudet's Les Bons Plats de France (At Table) Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Inspired by references to the “delicious books of Pampille” in Prousts Remembrance of Things Past, the veteran cookbook author Shirley King adapted this gastronomic gem of a book for the modern American kitchen. Marthe Daudet (1878-1960) was Pampille, and her book Les Bons Plats de France, originally published in 1919, is still regarded as a classic in France. Her intriguing mix of charming writing, insightful wit, and wonderful, authentic recipes makes this a travelogue as well as a useful cookbook. While remaining faithful to Pampilles language and work, King has updated the recipes when necessary to make them practical for modern cooks.
