The Little Paris Kitchen: Classic French recipes with a fresh and fun approach, Rachel Khoo
Rachel Khoo was determined to get to grips with French cooking, so to learn more she moved to Paris, despite not speaking a word of French, and enrolled at Le Cordon Bleu, the world-famous cookery school. Six years later, she still lives and works in Paris, cooking up a selection of classic French dishes from all over the country and giving them a fresh makeover with her own modern twists.
The Little Paris Kitchen includes all the big name dishes that you would expect in a French cookbook, such as Boeuf Bourguignon and Coq au vin, but it's not simply another collection of classic French recipes. It's the story of how Rachel discovered them, whether picnic-ing along the Seine on a sticky summer's night, having dinner with friends, chatting to her local butcher or baker, or experimenting with flavours in her kitchen at home.
From a Croque Madame muffin, to a deliciously fragrant Provencal lavender and lemon roast chicken, Rachel celebrates the culinary landscape of France as it is today and shows how simple these dishes really are.
