'Part recipe box, part blissful musings on life, this blog will
transport you instantly to France' -- Marie Claire

Readers of Dusoulier's ebullient blog won't be disappointed by
this wonderful melange of new creations and old favorites' -- Publishers Weekly

Great anecdotes and excellent recipes which are easy to follow and delicious
Unfortunately, my copy of the book now has some loose pages because it hasn't withstood being opened out on the kitchen table whilst I'm following a recipe - it would benefit from a more robust binding, but don't let that put you off!

A collection of 80 recipes awaits the reader.
Each one with a story and most of them with some wine recommendation - and of course - with mouth-watering and yummy pictures which make you "Aaaah" and "Ooooh" troughout the whole book while reading.

I especially loved the part about Clothilde herself where she tells us about her creativity and curiosity, some shopping tips for Parisians and -of course- her cooking philosophy.

The book now - after reading it a second time - is scattered with little yellow bookmarklets for all those recipes I marked for "want to give it a try".

Such as "Lemon Butter Cookies", "Chocolate Caramel Tarte", "Nectarine, Peach and Ginger Tarte", "Chocolate Raspberry Cake", "Chocolate & Zucchini Cake" (of course), "Chicken Cashew Quiche", "Bulgur-stuffed round Zucchini", "Mustard Chicken Stew", "Cumin Cheese Puffs", "Tuna and Green Apple Mousse", "Chestnut and Mushroom Soup", "Onion and Cumin Quiche", "Mushroom and Chantal Cheese Tartine"... to name a few...

I am looking forward to give the one or the other a try!
If you like Clothilde's blog you'll certainly likeher book!

Like most other reviewers; I came across Chocolate & Zucchini, Clotilde Dusoulier's cooking and food website first. I was intrigued by the recipes but didn't find myself trying many of them as my preference is for a well-laid out book rather than printed out sheets. It wasn't too long before I bought this book to try cooking from and I have loved everything I have tried so far! There is something here for nearly every occasion. From the simplest of supper dishes (such as piperade or mushroom and Cantal cheese tartine) to buffet and dinner party menus. If you enjoy French food, whether modern or traditional, there will be a recipe for you to delight in and salivate over.

The friendly and decidedly easy-going tone of the writing is heartening. There are anecdotes, experiences and reminiscences that flow beautifully alongside recipes. It is though you have a welcome friend chatting as you leisurely decide whether you will be having the chilled soup or Comté cheese soufflés. This also gives a great charm to the book's style which is unhurried and full of the pleasures of life. It makes the recipes easily understood and, I think, would definitely give confidence to a novice cook to experiment and learn new things. I particularly have to praise the recipe section on savoury tarts. Not only did this bring me to thoroughly enjoy home-made quiche (something I thought was impossible) but is based on what is the best savoury short pastry recipe I've ever come across for home cooking. It bakes like a dream and the days of soggy, unappetising, pastry seem to be banished. Thank you, Mme Dusoulier!

At times American English versions of some words do crop up in recipes.

Just as chocolateandzucchini.com is the ultimate blog for food-lovers, Chocolate and Zucchini the book is the ultimate book for food-lovers! I was delighted by every page and every recipe, even the most complex, is very well laid out and explained. The pictures are gorgeous and the way Clotilde Dusoulier discusses food and her journey with it is so beautifully descriptive. I can't wait to start cooking! I actually intend to buy another copy of this book- so i can have one in the kitchen that will get flour and oil and chocolate smears all over it, and one pristine one just to read!!

This is not only a cook book! I'm finding I'm dipping in to it at all times of the day ~ to grab a bite of language as it were. Clotilde writes with such charm and obvious love for food and wine. That we now have her prose and photos in a book is a true joy.

OH! the chocolate raspberry cake! I made it for my father's 92nd birthday..not a crumb was left.

This is highly recommended...I imagine word will spread and this delightful book will become a resident of many a kitchen around the world...it would make a gorgeous gift for any foodie friend :-)

My sister told me about the chocolate and zucchini blog about six months ago and I have been converted to a real fan. I was so excited to find out that my sister had posted me "Chocolate and Zucchini", Clotilde Dusoulier's delightful cookbook. When the package arrived, I was slightly disappointed by the book's small stature (its only about a hand-span tall) but when I curled up on my brown leather armchair with a cup of tea and my new gift, I realised I was in love. The size is quite important - it allows "Chocolate and Zucchini" to be so much more than a cookbook. Clotilde's recipes are honest, her photography enticing, but it is her writing that is outstanding. The descriptions that precede each recipe make me feel like I am reading a book a close friend has written. The personal aspects mean that while reading, I find myself turning to the back cover to view the author's photograph. What an amazing, talented person. Congratulations!
