More than a cookbook......., 19 May 2011
I bought myself this book with some birthday vouchers I was given. I live in the UK and had never heard of the author. However, I can confidently say that this is one of my favourite recipe books - in fact it's more than a collection of authentic French recipes; it's a sprinkled with anecdotes of Dorie's time in France and in particular, Paris. This transforms it into as much a diary as a cookbook and I not only use it as a cookbook for trying out new recipes, but I just dip in and out of it when I need a dose of Parisienne life and culture! It's introduced me to Dorie and her work and it's been a fantastic present to me from me!! Highly recommended.
