A Kitchen in France, Mimi Thorisson
A sumptuously photographed French cookbook with simple, elegant recipes that will transport food lovers, Francophiles, and armchair travelers to an old farmhouse in southwest France. When Mimi Thorisson and her husband moved with their children from Paris to a small town in out-of-the-way Medoc, 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 aspirational blog, Manger, was born, chronicling the family's seasonal meals and life in an old farmhouse, all photographed by her husband. These recipes - including Roast Chicken with Herbs and Creme Fraiche, Cepe and Parsley Tartlets, Winter Vegetable Cocotte, Apple Tart with Orange Flower Water, and Salted Butter Creme Caramel - will bring a touch of the French countryside into any home.
