I’m overjoyed with my new cookbook by Rachel Khoo: My Little French Kitchen. If you have been following my blog from the start, you know that I also have her other cookbook and that I often use her recipes in my blog posts. The reason why I love her recipes is that they are not too difficult, they require common ingredients, and the food makes you feel like you are really in France. The flavours transport you to Paris, the France country and small French villages. Her new cookbook is no exception. Again it is boasting with scrumptious recipes, sweet and savoury.
The book is a selection of more than 100 recipes, organised by regions. Artisan recipes, traditional makes, and pure home made food are what makes this book so unique. Rachel’s journey goes from produce markets to flea markets and from fisherman villages to mountain communities. From her journeys she draws inspiration to cook up simple and healthy meals, or more refined and delicate French cuisine. The photos by David Loftus are beautiful. And Rachel also embellished the book with her playful and colourful illustrations. If you get any cook book this year, make sure this is the one!
