French Country Cooking. Meals and Moments from A Village in The Vineyards, by Mimi Thorisson
Mimi Thorisson -the writer, recipe-creator behind the well-renowned food blog, Manger– opens the doors to her family home at N° 1 rue de Loudenne and invites you in her kitchen to taste lavish dishes, prepared in traditional French style.
Succulent recipes inspired by the farmers and artisans who populate the small village of St. Yzans in the Médoc region of France are made with fresh, local ingredients: white asparagus soufflé, wine harvest Pot au Feu, endives with ham, and salted butter chocolate cake are a delicious temptation that will delight your palate.
Featuring rustic yet elegant and evocative photographs taken by Mimi’s husband, Oddur Thorisson, and illustrated endpapers, make this cookbook a charming jaunt to an untouched corner of France that has thus far eluded the spotlight.
Mimi Thorisson successfully captures the best spirit -vibrant and intimate- of french country living, made of healthy ingredients, family love and lots of passion. French Country Cooking makes a precious and valuable addition to any cookbook collection.
