World Food Paris
“This book embodies the culinary soul of Paris. It describes the incredible diversity of France’s capital’s food scene and markets and provides quintessential French recipes, as well as stories from passionate home cooks and bistros alike. Accompanied by superb photos of the city, dishes, and ingredients, from cheeses to wines to bread, World Food: Paris is useful and fun to read and cook from.” —Jacques Pépin
Included are recipes for time-honored dishes such as Burgundy-style beef braised in red wine and bacon, as well as new ones like roast pork seasoned with preserved lemon and ginger. Readers will also find fundamentals such as how to grill a bistro-style steak to perfection along with tips for recreating a classic Parisian, or appetizer party, complete with wine, cheese, and small plates. There are also desserts such as crème brûlée and Grand Marnier soufflé, a dish as luscious as it is makeable.
Paris has long been synonymous with the best in dining. But until now no single book has explained why it continues to matter so much to cooks and food lovers. With more than one hundred fifty photographs, information about ingredients and history, and a comprehensive glossary, World Food: Paris captures a vital modern city where cooks from all walks of life are continuing a glorious culinary tradition.
