Book Description

26 April 2007
We may hate to admit it (and never would to the French), but the truth is that there is still nowhere in the world where food and cooking are so passionately and intricately woven into lives, hearts and minds than in France, a country where masterpieces of home cooking are produced nightly, whether for a family supper or chic dinner party. So how does that archetypal Frenchwoman do it? And how can we take a feuille out of her livre? This book tells you exactly how. With chapter titles such as 'Shops Wisely', 'Knows her classics', 'Steals from chefs' and 'Rises to the Occasion', this book will both delight and inform. Trish will teach you all you need to master French cuisine, from the classic dinner party recipes to the latest trends as well as how to tackle difficult ingredients such as truffles and lobster. An affectionate yet unsentimental, irreverent but non-patronising guide from one of France's top cookbook authors, "Nobody Does It Better" is set to steal a place on your kitchen shelf.

Product Description


It is the most engrossingly enjoyable, alluring, fantasy-fuelling - and funny - book about how to shop, cook, eat and live like a French woman. --Adriaane Pielou - You Magazine, Daily Mail

About the Author

Living and working in France for 20 years, Trish Deseine has freely developed her passion for cooking. Being neither a trained chef nor a home economist, Trish's approach is far from a French chef's Cartesian obsession with doing things the right way. Her recipes are pragmatic and forgiving and she shows the reader how to present food in the most simple, beautiful and impressive ways. Trish is the author of several books, which have won many awards including the French Gourmand Cookbook Award in 2002, and are all published across Europe and the US. She has also been profiled in French Elle and Vogue. Trish is now a regular contributor to French food pages. A 'best of' chocolate and her fifth book on cooking for children have just been published by Hachette Marabout.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic! 22 May 2007
By Iain
I have tried five of these recipes so far and they are a nice balance between not being too complicated but producing a result which gets a good reaction. Also unusually for a cook book, there is lots of interesting background as to how the French approach their food and how Trish Deseine learned about it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Not just a cookbook 19 July 2010
Don't get me wrong; this book is full of delicious, impressive and very French recipes, however it's about more than that... it's about the French attitude toward their food, cooking and by extension family and friends. Really, this is as much a lifestyle book as a cookbook. Buy it and see.
