Corrine gained my approval the very second she wrote: "Since, like yourself, I have things to do, places to go, children to raise, and I'm not in the business of cooking, I favor one pot dishes; recipes prepared in fifteen minutes that I can walk away from and come back to find ready to serve an hour later. I want comfort and nutrition for the least amount of time and an even smaller amount of dirty dishes." We share a very similar food philosophy.
The recipe selection is small, just 19 recipes, but well chosen. Most of them Grandma will have to cut in half, but her Soufflé au Fromage is already just half of Grandma's. Since I live in Vermont, the fromage of choice is Vermont Cheddar, the sharper the better, and it makes a dynamite souffle. Corrine has also convinced me to give Salad Niçoise a try. Julia's version, with everything drenched in vinaigrette separately, has somehow just always been a huge turn-off.
You'll find a very nicely done Table of Contents that interfaces correctly with the Kindle Navigation Menus along with a few extras - a synopsis of the book (now on Grandma's Wish List), a link to Corrine's blog and more.
Kudos, Corrine, for a very well done book. How much are tickets to Paris?
HMMM I got me a real bargain as this is an excellent little collection of very fine recipes. It belongs with French Classics Made Easy: More Than 250 Great French Recipes Updated and Simplified for the American Kitchen for grand cuisine in a home kitchen and Classic French Cooking: Recipes for Mastering the French Kitchen as another EXCELLENT group of curated French recipes of the good home cook variety.
I had lost my super simple easy but terrific souffle recipe years ago. My Russian Canadian husband not fond of souffle, quiche or omelette which I grew up on. My English grandfather grew up in Provence, and that style of cooking was routine in his home, as my step grandmother turned out French classics regularly as normal fare. Now 35 years later my husband finally wants to sample a souffle. But until this book, I hadn't found it.
There sitting among the treasure was this gem of a souffle, much as I recall.
Thank you Corinne, I appreciate your efforts and am very glad to own a copy of your book on my kindle!!!!
I HIGHLY recommend this cookbook!
The book is billed as one that contains mostly "simple to execute" recipes. I'm fairly certain there will be many readers who disagree with that assessment. I would like to say that the book is mistake free, but unfortunately, I can't. What the book really is is a great sales tool to promote the novel; and as such, it may have inspired me to purchase said book.
I am going to give the Coq au Vin recipe a try tonight, as I just happen to be thawing chicken for dinner. I give this one 3 3/4 stars. I feel that many of the recipes here will be perused but not used because of ingredients which might not be on hand or the semi-complicated nature of the recipes themselves.
Everything about this book is too brief, although approaching it as a somewhat charming travel book penned by a great Paris enthusiast may translate into entertaining reading for some. As a cookery book though, Hidden in Paris -- The Cookbook seems underambitious, hence nigh useless as such, at least for my purpose.
