Try the gateau with some fresh raspberries!

Even if you haven't read Joanne Harris' great books, this cookbook is filled with great simple-yet-elegant recipes and wonderful photos along the way.

You are not just making a soup, but the soup her aunt used to make when... The recipes will knock your socks off.

It's full of beautiful pictures of provincial homes, open markets, antique doorknockers and iron work, cooking utensils... and the cutest little pig with a dirty snout. She also includes charming little narratives to go along with the recipes and shares childhood memories associated with the food she loves. It is worth buying for the wonderful photos alone.
There is a recipe for a flourless chocolate almond cake that I will attempt at the first opportunity, and one for coq au vin, which I think sounds marvelous for a chilly weekend meal in October. I'm in love!

This book is beautiful.
You'll love looking at the photographs. But, what you will love more, especially if you love the combination of chocolate and nuts, is the "Gateau Charles", which is a flourless chocolate cake. I bake this cake [at least] once a week, for I like to eat a slice, daily. The cake is easy to prepare. (The recipe calls for the use of 70% chocolate. My suggestion, if you're in the United States, and if you can get your hands on it [the company is located in northern California], is to use the Scharfenberger brand of chocolate. No, I don't work for them; I'm just a "foodie".)

Okay, we've read Chocolat. We've read Blackberry Wine, and we've read Five Quarters of the Orange. And from the beginning it's been obvious that foodie/author Joanne Harris is a frustrated cookbook writer. We've drooled at her descriptions of the magic and pleasure, the texture and taste, the power and the glory of special foods. Well, she's finally done it: Harris has collaborated with a real cookbook author, Fran Warde, and created a collection of family recipes. The onion soup and the `slow' fudge sauce are, so far, my favorites, but I've still got about 115 more of the 120 recipes to test.
Wonderful.

I cannot say enough wonderful things about this cookbook. People have mentioned the beautiful photos and yes, they are certainly there. The writing helps to weave a spell about the recipes. You are not just making a soup, but the soup her aunt used to make when...

The recipes will knock your socks off. The roasted tomato tart is worth the price of the book. My book club was blown away by the bluberry tart. A gluten intolerant guest was thrilled with Gateau Lawrence. (Flourless chocolate. Easy, intense, and will make you a legend among your friends). The soups are excellent too. Oh yes, and the cabbage pie (galette) I made just because it sounded so weird, that was wonderful too. The recipes seem to 'work' if you know what I mean. You may choose to reduce the butter and make adjustments, but they turn out beautifully as written.

One complaint and it is an issue of layout, not content. The recipe introductions are, for some mind boggling reason, printed in very light grey and can be hard to see. Probably the layout design person was in their early 20's with perfect vision! Pretty is nice, but books are meant to be read people!

I'm going to get her other cookbook too, while it's still in hard cover. Buy this. You will use the recipes and love them!

This is a very beautiful book. Get a cup of cafe au lait and read this book. You will feel like you took a mini-vacation to France, and visited Ms. Harris's French Kitchen. Beautifully photographed, and so many good recipes to try. Highly recommended! It would make a wonderful gift for anyone interested in France or cooking.

Who Can Resist a cookbook written by the author of Chocolat?

Come on...I couldn't resist. The book is a sumptous delight with loads of pictures of French food and French life. I sat down with a French press and read the book from cover to cover before deciding what to cook. The recipes and the writing are unpretentious and yet elegant--just as good French food should be. A great find.

I've really enjoyed using this cookbook. I purchased it a few years ago and feel it's earned a favorable review; I use this book on a regular basis. The photographs are lovely and the author offers a little background information on each recipe, e.g. where the dish is from, its culinary importance in her family, etc. I actually would have liked a little more information because I enjoy the author's writing, which is why I didn't give it five stars, but that's no big deal. The book is a manageable size/weight with pages that lay flat when pressed down for easy viewing. Another thing I really like is that most of the recipes don't involve a ton of ingredients and/or all kinds of fancy cooking equipment/gadgets. While I can't vouch for the desserts (I'm not a baker), several of the savory recipes have become staples in my cooking repertoire--many of the soups, Gratin Dauphinois, and Cabbage Galette. This cookbook is just a great practical introduction to simple, classic, and delicious, French fare. Definitely worth the money.
