  • The Everything Easy French Cookbook: Includes Boeuf Bourguignon, Crepes Suzette, Croque-Monsieur Maison, Quiche Lorraine, Mousse au Chocolat...and Hundreds More! (Everything Series)
  • My Paris Kitchen: Recipes and Stories, by David Lebovitz - It's been ten years since David Lebovitz packed up his most treasured cookbooks, a well-worn cast-iron skillet, and his laptop and moved to Paris. In that time, the culinary culture of France has shifted as a new generation of chefs and home cooks-most notably in Paris-incorporates ingredients and techniques from around the world into traditional French dishes.
    Kindle Edition
  • A Kitchen in France: A Year of Cooking in My Farmhouse, by Mimi Thorisson - When Mimi Thorisson and her family moved from Paris to a small town in out-of-the-way Médoc, she did not quite know what was in store for them. She found wonderful ingredients-from local farmers and the neighboring woods-and, most important, time to cook. Her cookbook chronicles the family's seasonal meals and life in an old farmhouse, all photographed by her husband, Oddur. Mimi's convivial recipes-such as Roast Chicken with Herbs and Crème Fraîche, Cèpe and Parsley Tartlets, Winter Vegetable Cocotte, Apple Tart with Orange Flower Water, and Salted Butter Crème Caramel-will bring the warmth of rural France into your home.

  • Cuisine Nicoise: Sun-kissed Cooking from the French Riviera, by Hillary Davis - From easy weeknight meals to more elaborate Sunday dinners, learn the recipes and cooking style from the "other" French cuisine---the one that forms the foundation of the Mediterranean diet and celebrates local, fresh and light. Cuisine Niçoise is designed with olive oil, rather than butter and cream; is light, rather than bathed in rich sauces. And it uses fresh, locally sourced produce.
    Kindle Edition
  • French Comfort Food, by Hillary Davis - In France, people take pride in preserving the recipes of their regional heritage and deeply rooted traditions. What has remained true over time is that the French have a determined hold on their beloved regional classic dishes, the ones they grew up with that their mothers and grandmothers and grandmothers before them made-French comfort food.
  • Mastering the Art of French Eating: Lessons in Food and Love from a Year in Paris, by Ann Mah - When journalist Ann Mah's diplomat husband is given a three-year assignment in Paris, Ann is overjoyed. A lifelong foodie and Francophile, she immediately begins plotting gastronomic adventures à deux. Then her husband is called away to Iraq on a year-long post-alone. Suddenly, Ann's vision of a romantic sojourn in the City of Light is turned upside down.
