    F. Scott Fitzgerald's Taste of France is a culinary tour of Paris and the Riviera during the 1920s.

    Take a culinary tour of Paris and the Riviera in the 1920s, a time when American writers and artists flocked to the Continent. Carol Hilker has collected over 60 recipes inspired by the decadent food and drink enjoyed by F. Scott Fitzgerald and his fellow expatriates. Transport yourself to a café on boulevard Montparnasse and breakfast on Croque Monsieur accompanied by a Bloody Mary, or lunch on Caviar Sandwiches and Champagne. Idle away the hours on the sun-soaked French coast with an al fresco supper of Shrimp Cocktail, Steak Frites and Riviera Fruit Salad, or throw a party to rival Gatsby’s most glamorous affair and serve Harlequin Salad and Gin Rickeys.

    With features such as Drunk Before Noon exploring the flight from Prohibition in the USA and the resulting development of cocktail culture in France, Americans in Paris on the expat community to which Fitzgerald was introduced by Ernest Hemingway, and Chefs de Paris celebrating the great traditions of French cookery, F. Scott Fitzgerald's Taste of France is a gourmet journey you won’t want to miss.

    Publication date: 01/12/2016

    Fanny is a girl who knows a lot about food and cooking since she's grown up in and around the famous restaurant Chez Panisse in Berkeley, California. When Fanny's mother, Alice Waters, the chef and owner of Chez Panisse, starts to watch her favorite old French movies, Fanny knows soon they'll be packing their bags and traveling to France for a visit. In this sparkling book of whimsical stories, Fanny recounts some of her most fun-filled adventures with French friends and food. Join Fanny as she helps cook a huge bouillabaisse in Provence; learns how to make fresh cheese from a shepherd high up in the Pyrenees mountains; hunts for wild oysters off the coast of Bordeaux, and discovers how one chicken can feed nine people, if served a certain way. Fanny in France is also a beginner's cookbook with forty simple, French-inspired recipes that encourage children and adults anywhere to cook and share delicious snacks and meals with family and friends using basic methods and the most sustainable ingredients.
    Alice Waters is Fanny’s mother and the noted chef, restaurateur and proprietor of Chez Panisse in Berkeley, California. She was an early advocate for the use of organic and locally grown food in restaurants, and has written a number of books and won numerous awards relating to her philosophy of food and eating. Before being a cook, Alice was a Montessori teacher and this experience inspired her to found the Edible Schoolyard Project whose mission is to create and establish a national edible education curriculum in all public schools – kindergarten through college. In 2010, Alice received the prestigious Légion d’honneur from the French government and in 2014 she received the National Humanities Medal.

  • Five Seasons Kitchen
    Five Seasons Kitchen
    ISBN: 9781910690314
    Publication date: 01/02/2017

    In 2015 Pierre Gagnaire, whose 11 restaurants worldwide boast two and three Michelin stars, was voted 'Best Chef in the World' by his peers and 2016 sees him mark 50 dazzlingly creative and successful years in the kitchen. To celebrate this outstanding career Grub Street is delighted to be publishing his new title 'La Cuisine des 5 Saisons' in English. This beautiful book is about his recipes and his work as a chef and for the first time makes his dishes accessible for home cooks. Why is it called 'Five Seasons'? Because for chef Gagnaire there are five not four seasons; Spring, he says must be divided into two seasons because you don't have the same produce in March as in June. Thus the recipes in this book follow the rhythm of the seasons and their bounty. In each chapter there are six menus with starter, main dish and dessert. The recipes come from Pierre's culinary's repertory and these are the recipes which made him famous. Through the recipes one can see the strong worldwide influence in his cuisine, cooking with every kind of ingredient. His eponymous restaurant in Paris specialises in modern French cuisine, and has garnered three Michelin stars. He has become an iconoclastic chef at the forefront of the fusion cuisine movement by introducing jarring juxtapositions of flavours, tastes, textures, and ingredients. On his website he gives his mission statement as 'facing tomorrow but respectful of yesterday'. Gagnaire is also Head Chef of Sketch in London. In 2005 both restaurants were ranked in the S.Pellegrino World's 50 Best Restaurants, with Pierre Gagnaire ranking third for three consecutive years (2006, 2007, and 2008). In December 2009, Gagnaire made his United States debut with Twist in Las Vegas, which has since received great critical praise. He now also has restaurants in Hong Kong, Seoul, Dubai, Tokyo, Berlin, and Moscow.

    Food and Wine of France Eating and Drinking from Champagne to Provence
    ISBN: 9781594204524
    Publication date: 01/01/2017

    In The Food and Wine of France, the influential food writer Edward Behr investigates French cuisine and what it means, in encounters from Champagne to Provence. He tells the stories of French artisans and chefs who continue to work at the highest level. Many people in and out of France have noted for a long time the slow retreat of French cuisine, concerned that it is losing its important place in the country’s culture and in the world culture of food. And yet, as Behr writes, good French food remains very, very delicious. No cuisine is better. The sensuousness is overt. French cooking is generous, both obvious and subtle, simple and complex, rustic and utterly refined. A lot of recent inventive food by comparison is wildly abstract and austere. In the tradition of great food writers, Edward Behr seeks out the best of French food and wine. He shows not only that it is as relevant as ever, but he also challenges us to see that it might become the world’s next cutting edge cuisine.

    France remains the greatest country for bread, cheese, and wine, and its culinary techniques are the foundation of the training of nearly every serious Western cook and some beyond. Behr talks with chefs and goes to see top artisanal producers in order to understand what “the best” means for them, the nature of traditional methods, how to enjoy the foods, and what the optimal pairings are. As he searches for the very best in French food and wine, he introduces a host of important, memorable people.

    The Food and Wine of France is a remarkable journey of discovery. It is also an investigation into why classical French food is so extraordinarily delicious–and why it will endure.

    Dee Nolan, an award-winning journalist and editor, began her career in Melbourne. She then worked for some of the world's leading newspapers and magazines in London and New York. While still living in the UK, she and her husband, John Southgate, bought back her family farm, Gum Park, in the Limestone Coast of South Australia, and they began a long-distance restoration of the house and property. Established by Dee's grandfather a century ago, it had been out of family ownership for twenty-five years. After more than two decades overseas, Dee has returned to live in Australia, where she and John divide their time between Sydney and the Limestone Coast. Their passion for olives and their commitment to sustainable farming has been realised in the certified organic olive oil Nolans Road, which they produce from the olive groves they have planted at Gum Park.

    For decades, David Downie and Alison Harris have been exploring Burgundy--they walked clear across it in 2006--reporting on their finds for top magazines and newspapers worldwide. This is the third Terroir Guide they have collaborated on and perhaps the most detailed and personal of any so far. Burgundy is one of France's great food and wine regions. Many of the world's most sought-after wines are produced there; so, too, are some of the most underrated, underpriced white wines in France. Each of Burgundy's five wine districts is thoroughly explored in this guide, with recommendations on which wines to buy and which wineries to visit. Wine terminology is explained in a way that anyone can understand. On the food side, Burgundy still has a surprising number of luxurious restaurants, as well as dozens of country auberges visitors dream of discovering. Downie leads you to just such places, as well as to specialty food shops where you can taste the region's "terroir "firsthand. Burgundy's lush scenery distills the essence of French "terroir," and each of its subregions has a distinctive character where the architecture and art reflect this storied diversity

    Their wanderings through the French capital and countryside, frequently photographed by Paul, would help lead to the classic Mastering the Art of French Cooking, and Julia's brilliant and celebrated career in books and on television. Though Paul was an accomplished photographer (his work is in the collection of the Museum of Modern Art), his photographs remained out of the public eye until the publication of Julia's memoir, My Life in France, in which several of his images were included. Now, with more than 200 of Paul's photographs and personal stories recounted by his great-nephew Alex Prud'homme, France is a Feast not only captures this magical period in Paul and Julia's lives, but also brings to light Paul Child's own remarkable photographic achievement.
