A Kitchen in France: A Year of Cooking in my Farmhouse

This is food porn. And I mean that as the highest compliment. It's absolutely the most beautifully photographed cook book I've ever seen. Every recipe has AT LEAST one photo to accompany it, but often times there is more than one. Just stunning. My mouth was watering the whole time.

This book is ingeniously divided into four sections, one for each season. The recipes in each section feature seasonal vegetables, herbs, and nuts. Each recipe is broken down and easy to follow, even for a cooking novice like me. Before each recipe there is loving description that absolutely makes you want to try it out. Even as a vegetarian I found plenty of recipes to try, many could easily be substituted with meat alternatives. I especially can't wait to try the chou farci, it's the most beautiful cabbage dish I've ever seen. Even though it contains meat I'd like to put my own spin on it.

This book is a must have, even for cooking beginners. It's beautiful, easy to follow, and contains soo many unique recipes. I have several cookbooks at home but most of the recipes found in this tome were completely new to me. Granted I don't cook a lot of french cuisine, but still. Buy this book! You won't regret it!

I received this book for free from Blogging for Books in return for my honest, unbiased opinion.
