A Parisian private chef shares his favorite fall recipes and anecdotes in this delicious collection with French flair!
As fall arrives, let’s change more than just our wardrobes—let’s reinvent our cooking with seasonal products! Too difficult or time-consuming? Not with these tips and quick and easy recipes from chef Didier Quémener. Didier’s cooking is all about seasonal ingredients (no strawberries on Didier’s table in November). He grew up in the French countryside, picking fresh fruit and vegetables in his grandmother’s garden and preparing flavorful meals at her side. Today, Didier brings that love for seasonal products to his guests and to you. As a result, your meals will be tastier, easier to make—and less expensive.
Is this a purely French cookbook? No! Didier, who’s traveled throughout the U.S., Europe and China, is greatly influenced by his voyages, and his cuisine is the perfect reflection of this. So if you like cookbooks with a seasonal and international touch, you’ll find this one especially delightful!
“The tomato you find in June isn’t the same as the tomato of September. And I love how we gently progress into a different veggie and fruit selection as we prepare the first warm soups.”
This was a lovely little short cookbook featuring some yummy recipes inspired by Autumn’s bounty. There are three recipe sections (Appetizers – Drinks, Main Courses, and Desserts) Each section starts with a little introduction about one of the main ingredients in the recipe, followed by the recipe itself. With wine suggestions and little tips from Didier on how to change up spices etc at the end of each. We are also treated to some delicious looking photos and easy to follow instructions. I can’t wait to try my hand at a few of these.
