The French Market Cookbook by Clotilde Dusoulier

The French Market Cookbook
Vegetarian Recipes from My Parisian Kitchen
by Clotilde Dusoulier

Trade Paperback, 224 pages

Clotilde Dusoulier brought French cooking to the home level with her world famous Parisian cooking and lifestyle blog, Chocolate and Zucchini.

Not a vegetarian herself, Clotilde does believe in the less meat movement and this book showcases seasonal vegetables at their very best. The French Market Cookbook is completely vegetarian with little dairy and some gluten-free options. She divides the chapters by season, indicating which fruits and vegetables are at their peak at that time, and how to use them in inventive and delicious ways.

You'll find wonderful new creations and combinations, as well as some favourites shown in a whole new light. This is the book to kick-start your fresh market shopping and cooking, to get you attuned to the seasons and the bounty of each harvest. 

Plus, Clotilde's beautiful photos and notes about Paris are enough to enchant you. Each recipe title is also translated into French, so you can feel like you've travelled to Paris and back as you announce your dishes to friends and family. Better yet - get a chalk menu board and write them down there.

Bouillon de champignons et gnocchi parisiens, anyone?
