A Parisian private chef invites you into his kitchen for a taste of his favorite winter recipes—and anecdotes about growing up in the French countryside.

Chef Didier Quémener, author of Chef Q in Paris: The Fall Collection, is back with his second book, this time focusing on winter. Didier’s mantra is cooking with seasonal products. They’re inexpensive and flavorful. What’s not to love? Growing up in the French countryside, Didier learned how to make the most of each season, choosing the tastiest ingredients to warm the body and soul. Today, he shares delicious, easy and inexpensive recipes, as well as tips and stories from his life then and now.

Like Didier’s fall cookbook, this one, too, has French flair, but doesn’t stop at French borders. Didier has traveled throughout the U.S., Europe and China, and he brings these voyages to his cuisine. If you enjoy cookbooks with a seasonal and international flavor, this one will delight your palate!

This addition to this cookbook series focuses on WINTER ingredients and comfort foods. It has a nice little “SHOPPING LIST” at the start with things like Escarole, Belgian Endive, Sweet Potato, Cabbage…etc.

It is then divided into three parts. SOUPS — MAIN COURSES — DESSERTS & DRINKS. Each recipe starts with a photo, a little history about the recipe, the recipe itself, a “CHEERS” paragraph that suggests the best beverage to accompany the recipe, and a “DIDIER TIP” which suggests different ingredients to change up the recipes.

Some of the recipes featured in this book are…

— FRENCH ONION SOUP
— ULTIMATE CHICKEN SOUP
— TURKEY BREAST WITH NORMANDY CREAM SAUCE
— BEER LAMB STEW
— INTENSE CHOCOLATE CAKE
— CHOCOLATE CAFÉ CRÉME

You also get two bonus chapters. One titled “WHICH TEA GOES WITH YOUR MACARONS” and “THE PERFECT VALENTINE’S DINNER”

If you are a foodie like me, this would make a great addition to your cookbook collection, Two thumbs up from yours truly.
