Review

“In My French Family Table Béatrice Peltre has once again brought together a collection that deftly balances tradition and contemporary tastes, the realities of the everyday kitchen and a subtle sense of luxury. With warmth and her distinctive, deft touch, the recipes feel wholesome, special, and thoroughly personal.”—Tara O’Brady, author of Seven Spoons
 
"Béea’s unique mix of simplicity and style shines through the entire book, and her kind, approachable voice illuminates the beautiful recipes she shares. This new collection of hers is bound to inspire new and delicious traditions for your family.”— Clotilde Dusoulier, creator of the blog Chocolate & Zucchini and author of The French Market Cookbook
 
“In My French Family Table, Béa reminds us of the importance of the table. To gather together for the meal, which need not be fussy or complicated, is really what is central in feeding a family. But the food is what brings us to the table and Béa never disappoints there. The recipes are simple yet inspirational and tucked in between her poetic words and stunning photographs are countless tips and tricks for making each recipe a success.”It’s no secret that the French love food and in My French Family Table, Béa brings the passion, love, care, and beauty ingrained in her from her French childhood to our table. The recipes are inspiring and approachable. Béa’s stunning imagery will send straight into the kitchen and her friendly voiced laced with years of kitchen wisdom will guide you confidently while you are there. —Ashley Rodriguez, creator of the blog Not without Salt and author of Date Night In

“We have similarly aged children as Béatrice and are huge fans of La Tartine Gourmande (blog and book!) so we were thrilled to receive her new book. My French Family Table is focused around one of our favourite subjects—cooking and enjoying food with your family—and it is just as gorgeous, colourful and warm as her first book. We also love how Béa makes gluten-free baking so natural, easy and effortless. Truly inspiring!”—David Frenkiel & Luise Vindahl, authors of The Green Kitchen and Green Kitchen Travels
 
“I have always been attracted to Béea's cooking for the way she so beautifully and deliciously weaves color, flavor, and fresh produce into her recipes. Her second book is breathtaking and full of meals and treats I can’t wait to make for my own family.”—Sara Forte, author of Sprouted Kitchen and Sprouted Kitchen: Bowl + Spoon

My French Family Table is a joy to browse through as it is photographed so beautifully. The writer/ cook is also a food stylist. Her recipes are outstanding and they are always art. An additional plus is that her recipes are gluten free without that being the main theme of the book. I was enchanted by her first book. Often it's hard to follow with a success. This cookbook is equally delightful with amazing recipes. The first recipe I tried was the Spring Vegetable salad with Salmon and an egg. The dressing had vanilla bean in it which made it super delicious. My photo isn't artful like Béa's but my husband and I loved this dish.
This a great gift for yourself, any Francophile or someone with gluten issues.

This is one of the few cookbooks I've read cover to cover. It is beautifully photographed and the writing has such a nice simplicity and rhythm. I like how Ms. Peltre weaves in personal stories without going on too long or oversharing. The photos also provide great ideas for how to serve various dishes. I find myself inspired by every recipe - they are both creative and accessible. I know my local store will have the ingredients; and I know my relatively basic kitchen has everything I need to make the recipes. I also feel like the flavor combinations make sense (not sure how else to put it!). I've already made a few recipes and they are truly delicious, just like Ms. Peltre's previous book.

I don't eat gluten free but that doesn't feel like the purpose of the book. I'm actually tempted to try some of the gluten-free baking recipes in the book, though I haven't yet. A friend baked one and it tasted great. That said, if you find gluten-free baking too complicated, you could pass over those recipes and still have so many amazing ones to choose from.

Yesterday when I was headed out the door for some errands, I was handed a small package that had just arrived. To my delight, it was my long awaiting pre-order of Beatrice Peltre's latest book. I carried the book while I went to a few shops, everyone wanted to see it and get a copy. When I stopped at a table outside a cafe and browsed through it, more than one person stopped and asked what book it was and remarked about the gorgeous pictures. Since I live in Seattle, I simply had to point to the only brick and mortar Amazon bookstore, a few feet away!

I loved Beatrice's first book, La Tartine Gourmande, and have often used it for gifts. This one is just as lovely and exciting. We lived for some years in Paris, and now must admit to being food snobs. This is not the heavier or more elaborate style of French Cooking you see in some books. This is fresh, light, healthy and seasonal with an unmistakable French flair. It has easy recipes with sometimes unique combinations of ingredients. The pictures alone are so lovely, that you feel you are in the French countryside on a Spring day! ( and I are fairly sure Beatrice is also the photographer )

Perfect timing too, as Spring begins in the PNW, and the farmer's markets are just opening. You absolutely cannot go wrong with this book. My greatest dilemma is which recipes to begin making today!!

I reviewed and cooked from this book for a column at the Sunday Supper Movement. Beatrice is well known for her gorgeous photography and her vibrant, fresh recipes. Grandmother's Stuffed Potatoes was a huge hit for my family - the lamb mixture was outstanding as well. Even though this is technically a gluten-free cookbook - the author has shared that regular flour can be substituted gram for gram with similar results. There are so many quick meals perfect for weeknights and stunning enough for weekend meals. Do yourself a favor and check out this beautiful book.

One of the best cookbooks ever. Why? Because it's amazingly useful, because the recipes are excellent and come out exactly as you see in the book, and because everyone will think you are the best cook ever (if you don't tell them you didn't just make these up yourself). I bought it for myself but will buy it for friends who are vegetarian (very veggie and gluten free friendly), for beginner cooks who like to eat healthily and look at dismay at the lovely but somewhat technically difficult and ingredient heavy Plenty by Ottolenghi (Peltre is a home cook, not a chef, what a relief!), for friends who love instagram and pinterest (the exquisite photos are inspiring and will send folks running to Anthropologie for kitchen implements), for people who like French food and for my dessert loving peeps. Oh, and for people who go crazy at the farmer's market and come home and say why did I buy celeriac? What will I do with this? Well you'll find out!! So it's a great first and last cookbook.

As for me - I've made quite a few recipes from it and one thing that still surprises me is how much I end up loving recipes that have ingredients I never would have combined on my own like Tomato and watermelon gazpacho with crabmeat and creme fraiche. Kale and smoked salmon quiche.Use your leftover store bought chicken (that's me, not the author) and make Vanilla flavored chicken Clafoutis. See what I mean? You might think, hmmm, but then you serve it and your family goes nuts and back you dive, into the book! So totally original! So easy! Yes, there's tons of "plain" stuff, say chicken stuffed with herbs, walnuts and grainy mustard and stuff like that but when you buy Romanesco cause it looks so cool and then bring it home what do you do with it besides admire it? Make the gratin!!
