"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 M#65533;doc, 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 Cr#65533;me Fra#65533;che, C#65533;pe and Parsley Tartlets, Winter Vegetable Cocotte, Apple Tart with Orange Flower Water, and Salted Butter Cr#65533;me Caramel--will bring the warmth of rural France into your home.
