With beguiling recipes and sumptuous photography, A Kitchen in France transports readers to the French countryside and marks the debut of a captivating new voice in cooking.

"This is real food: delicious, honest recipes that celebrate the beauty of picking what is ripe and in season, and capture the essence of life in rural France."
—Alice Waters

When Mimi Thorisson and her family moved from Paris to a small town in out-of-the-way Médoc, she did not quite know what was in store for them. She found wonderful ingredients—from local farmers and the neighboring woods—and, most important, time to cook. Her cookbook chronicles the family’s seasonal meals and life in an old farmhouse, all photographed by her husband, Oddur. Mimi’s convivial recipes—such as Roast Chicken with Herbs and Crème Fraîche, Cèpe and Parsley Tartlets, Winter Vegetable Cocotte, Apple Tart with Orange Flower Water, and Salted Butter Crème Caramel—will bring the warmth of rural France into your home.

Très beau livre avec des recette inspirantes, Mimi est une personne attachante... Attention cependant, les ingrédients sont francais et donc bien différents parfois de ce que l'on trouve en Amérique du Nord. Il faut donc déjà avoir un bon savoir faire dans l'adaptation des recettes. Un livre qu'on regarde avant de se lancer en cuisine plus qu'un véritable guide de recettes

Beautiful, lush, idyllic, and inspiring in a way, but also kind of out of touch with ingredients and lifestyle we have in the States.
I do love how the author Thorisson embraces family life and the celebration of everyday. Of course this all looks (unfairly so) much nicer in the French countryside!
Not to mention she herself is and just happens to have a good looking family thanks to good genes. All that said, I do believe she is a talented person and has something to offer the reader!

This is definitely one of the books I want in my personal collection. I love the p.o.v. of the author & her use of ingredients many today aren't familiar with.
