Overview
With beguiling recipes and sumptuous photography, A Kitchen in France transports readers to the French countryside and marks the debut of a captivating new voice in cooking.

"This is real food: delicious, honest recipes that celebrate the beauty of picking what is ripe and in season, and capture the essence of life in rural France."
--Alice Waters

When Mimi Thorisson and her family moved from Paris to a small town in out-of-the-way Medoc, she did not quite know what was in store for them. She found wonderful ingredients--from local farmers and the neighboring woods--and, most important, time to cook. Her cookbook chronicles the family's seasonal meals and life in an old farmhouse, all photographed by her husband, Oddur. Mimi's convivial recipes--such as Roast Chicken with Herbs and Creme Fraiche, Cepe and Parsley Tartlets, Winter Vegetable Cocotte, Apple Tart with Orange Flower Water, and Salted Butter Creme Caramel--will bring the warmth of rural France into your home.

In this warm and inviting collection, Thorisson, a French TV personality and author of Manger, a food blog devoted to French cooking, brings readers into the kitchen of her farmhouse in Médoc, which she shares with her five children, numerous dogs, and her husband, the photographer who provided the stunning photos that comprise nearly half of the book. Thorisson groups her offerings by season, providing starters, main courses, and desserts that utilize the best ingredients for the time of year. From spring’s onion tarts, artichoke soufflés, and Parisian sole to winter’s potato pie, garlic soup, and coq au vin, she provides something for every palate. Tuna rillettes, apricot panna cotta, and pork cheek ravioli with cèpes demonstrate the breadth of her skill. And while the appeal of this collection rests firmly on its recipes, the incredible photographs capture life in the French countryside. Sidebars on everything from dried grapevines and wine to garlic and visits the butcher add little details that transport the reader to this bucolic, idyllic world where Thorisson is the perfect host. (Oct.)
