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.

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.

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.

Beautifully illustrated, fantastically well written and the recipes are to die for! So far I have prepared the Aïoli, the brie stuffed with truffled mascarpone, the floating island dessert and I'm not stopping anytime soon. If only all cookbooks were as good and informed as Trish Deseine's - she really knows her stuff!

I bought this book with high expectations having read a review that this lady was taking France by storm with her gorgeous recipes. For me the meals were very "meaty" and not very practical - if you love France and want to spend days in the kitchen, then perhaps it's for you - I'll stick with Nigella - practical and pragmatic British cooking for me!
