The French Market Cookbook: Vegetarian Recipes from My Parisian Kitchen

$21.37Save $2.44 10% off – RRP
$23.81 Free delivery worldwide

Cook from the farmer’s market with inspired vegetarian recipes–many of which are gluten-free and dairy-free–with a French twist, all highlighting seasonal produce. Beloved ChocolateAndZucchini.com food blogger Clotilde Dusoulier is not a vegetarian. But she has, like many of us, chosen to eat less meat and fish,and is always looking for new ways to cook what looks best at the market. In The French Market Cookbook, `she takes us through the seasons in 82 recipes–and explores the love story between French cuisine and vegetables.  Choosing what’s ripe and in season means Clotilde does not rely heavily on the cheese, cream, and pastas that often overpopulate vegetarian recipes. Instead she lets the bright flavors of the vegetables shine through: carrots are lightly spiced with star anise and vanilla in a soup made with almond milk; tomatoes are jazzed up by mustard in a gorgeous tart; winter squash stars in golden Corsican turnovers; and luscious peaches bake in a cardamom-scented custard. With 75 color photographs of the tempting dishes and the abundant markets of Paris, and with Clotilde’s charming stories of shopping and cooking in France, `The French Market Cookbook` is a transportive and beautiful cookbook for food lovers everywhere.
