Title: Carnet Retrouvé Des Meilleurs Petits Plats Française
Intro: 67 Recettes essentielles
Why I like it:
I have some preconception regarding French “cuisine”: I find it too articulate, complicated and I always have this feeling that when I go to a French restaurant, no matter what I order, I will never get something similar to what I was expecting and worse still, it will not taste close to what I thought.
When I saw this book, I found it amazing!
The design is very well done, giving particular attention to detail and the recipes are nice and easy!
Do not expect some “Parisian extremely posh nouvelle cuisine” – in this book you can find the forgotten “vrais saveurs de la cuisine des paysans français”!
I immediately loved this book reading the introduction as one of the author writes: “…to know that a simple green bean could be so delicious, has strongly changed my view of the world…”
The book takes inspiration from a handwritten recipe notebook dated 1870….
