A Kitchen In France: A Year of Cooking In My Farmhouse
This is seriously my favorite cookbook ever. I've had it for a couple of years and almost every page is dogeared and my family begs me to cook beloved favorites from it all year long. "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 Créme 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."
