    28 Days In Provence Food and Family in the Heart of France (Shannon Bennett)
    ISBN: 9780522858075
    Publication date: 01/11/2012

    In a glorious farmhouse just outside the village of Ménerbes, Shannon immerses himself in the life of Provence. With no recipes from home, his first task is to find old books and learn the history of local dishes. His aim is to re-engage with a culinary tradition that has been such a part of his life, and to nourish and enjoy time with his young family. He invites us to join them all and step inside this beautiful part of France, to grab a glass of Côtes du Ventoux and live life like à la français.
    Exploring village markets, cooking with local and seasonal produce, learning classic food techniques and soaking up the culture are all part of the daily life of a chef and his family on holiday. What began as a diary has become a beautiful record of regional food and Shannon’s home cooking, and includes more than 60 original recipes: from slow-cooked duck with honey and thyme to lamb cassoulet with preserved lemons, from artichoke stuffed with ratatouille to figs wrapped in olive oil brioche—all created on the spot to incorporate the fresh ingredients Shannon sources every day.To round out this luscious feast, the book includes many other tips and treasures, including overviews of the region’s wines, as well as a personal guide to the best restaurants and hotels.

    At My French Table (pb)
    ISBN: 9780670078240
    Publication date: 01/09/2014

    After years of thinking about it, Jane Webster finally bought a dilapidated chateau in France. She and her husband had decided they didn't want to die wondering what it would be like to live in the country they both loved so much, so they sold their house in Melbourne, took their four young children out of school and moved the whole family to a tiny village in Normandy.

    This is the magical story of their first year in France: with a new language to learn, new friends to make, and a whole new region – from Deauville to Rouen – to discover. It is also the story of Chateau de Bosgouet and how Jane lovingly brought this grand but neglected old house back to life.

    At My French Table is an ode to a beautiful country and the French way of life.

    'If as a child you loved fairy tales and dreamt of being Cinderella, or if you yearned to be the handsome prince with a turreted castle, you're going to adore Jane Webster's gloriously illustrated At My French Table.' New York Journal of Books

    'A love letter to France.' Sydney Morning Herald

    'Webster has a clever knack of bringing to life the five-story Chateau de Bosgouet. It's hard not to be bewitched by Bosgouet's charm, or inspired by Webster's warm and thoughtful depiction of French country life.' The Food Sage

    Publication date: 01/07/2018

    From the unpretentious and intimate bistros of Paris and the classic bouchons of Lyons, the carefully selected recipes featured here are the most popular recipes from Alain Ducasse's own series of critically acclaimed bistrot-style restaurants.

    Aimed at anyone who has aspired to haute cuisine but has been scared off by its technical intricacies and reputation for heaviness, the recipes contained in this charming, contemporary looking volume are based on traditional, regional French dishes inspired by local agriculture and terroir, but with Ducasse's signature treatment bringing them up date for the 21st century with contemporary twists and an eye toward healthier eating. These recipes demonstrate that simple ingredients, simply prepared, can give a result as good as using ingredients that are heavier or more expensive. Rooted in the history of French regional cooking and drawn from his restaurants Aux Lyonnais (in Paris), Benoit (in Paris, New York, and Tokyo), and Allard (in Paris), the 110 convivial and classic French bistro recipes include: oeuf cocotte, pâté en croûte, blanquette de veau fermier, mousse au chocolat and of course the classic dessert poire belle-Hélène.

    This volume on bistro cooking invites the reader on a journey to the heart of France's traditional and popular cuisine – replete with charm and authenticity – and is nothing less than a celebration of France's culinary heritage updated and refreshed for the 21st century.
