The idiosyncrasies of language can tell us a lot about a culture. In this delightful book, Clotilde Dusoulier, creator of the award-winning food blog Chocolate & Zucchini, delves into the history and meaning of fifty of the French language's most popular food-related expressions. Accompanied by beautiful watercolor illustrations by artist M̩lina Josserand, Edible French explores whimsical turns of phrase such as- Tomber dans les pommes (falling into the apples) = fainting Se faire rouler dans la farine (being rolled in flour) = being fooled Avoir un Òur d'artichaut (having the heart of an artichoke) = falling in love easily A treat of a read for Francophiles and food lovers alike, Edible French is the tastiest way to explore French culture - one that will leave you in high spirits - or, as the French say, vous donnera la pche (give you the peach).
Many Jewish families continue the tradition of gathering to share a meal on Friday nights, but a new generation is changing the approach to traditional food. At the same time, the rest of the world is discovering the joys of Jewish cooking.
In Feasting, Amanda Ruben brings together her fresh takes on classic recipes, along with popular favourites from her contemporary cafe and deli, and her own busy family home.
Carrot salad with miso tahini, Middle Eastern fruit salad with cashew cream, and the best pastrami you may ever taste _ these are simple, delicious and (surprisingly) healthy dishes for any lunch, dinner party or holiday celebration. When Jewish heritage meets global culinary influences, every meal is sure to be a true feast.
There's never been a book about food like Let's Eat France! A book that feels literally larger than life, it is a feast for food lovers and Francophiles, combining the completist virtues of an encyclopedia and the obsessive visual pleasures of infographics with an enthusiast's unbridled joy.
Here are classic recipes, including how to make a pot-au-feu, eight essential composed salads, p_t_ en cro_te, blanquette de veau, choucroute, and the best ratatouille. Profiles of French food icons like Colette and Curnonsky, Brillat-Savarin and Bocuse, the Troigros dynasty and Victor Hugo. A region-by-region index of each area's famed cheeses, charcuterie, and recipes. Poster-size guides to the breads of France, the wines of France, the oysters of France _ even the frites of France. You'll meet endive, the belle of the north; discover the croissant timeline; understand the art of tartare; find a chart of wine bottle sizes, from the tiny split to the Nebuchadnezzar (the equivalent of 20 standard bottles); and follow the family tree of French sauces.
Adding to the overall delight of the book is the random arrangement of its content (a tutorial on mayonnaise is next to a list of places where Balzac ate), making each page a found treasure. It's a book you'll open anywhere _ and never want to close.
