Gorgeous full-page photos jump off the pages, making your mouth water and your heart sigh. You’ll wish you were in France, but holding the cookbook is the next best thing. With inspiring ideas and over 150 scrumptious recipes, Karen Allen shows you how you can bring “La France” to your home and dining table.
You’ll want to order multiple copies for yourself and your friends!
With each visit to France, Karen is inspired by something she sees, then she comes home to the U.S. and re-creates the experience. The Moulin Rouge in Paris inspires a bohemian Toulouse-Lautrec dinner party complete with goldfish swimming in cups. Coco Chanel’s apartment is re-created for a celebratory birthday party with gift bags for everyone. The lavender fields of Provence give way to honey cakes and fresh vegetables. And the seafood of the French Riviera inspires towers of oysters, shrimp, and lobster.
You, too, can turn your dining room into a chic French Bistro or pulsating Paris night club— she tells you how! Corresponding menus with enticing recipes will make you want to start cooking on the spot: White Wine Poached Salmon, Peach & Almond Galette, Cheese Soufflé, Lemon Tarts, and Paëlla from Nyons. Each chapter also contains inventive French-themed cocktails. Ooh la la! You’ll want to host a party just to have an excuse to cook her fabulous recipes.
Whether you’re looking for cooking inspiration or a great gift for a french loving foodie friend, Ooh La La! French Inspirations for Entertaining and Travel is the cookbook for you.
