The French Kitchen Cookbook: Recipes and Lessons from Paris and Provence


Ever wish you could go on a gastronomic adventure to France? Now you can . . . without a passport. The French Kitchen Cookbook: Recipes and Lessons from Paris and Provence (William Morrow Cookbooks, $35) is a tasty inside look at culinary legend Patricia Wells’s cooking schools. Focusing on the fresh, inspiring recipes and lessons from the much-coveted classes held in her beautiful homes in Paris and Provence, Patricia takes you into her life in France, telling the story of how her school began and the many memorable experiences she shared with family, friends and students. From traditional rustic dishes like Winter Pistou to more sophisticated fare such as Tomato Tatins, Patricia is sharing her most treasured recipes with her fans.
Patricia has lived and cooked in France for more than 30 years, and is a devoted lover of all foods and a teacher of her own distinctive cuisine. In this new book, Patricia tells the story of how her love for dinner with family and friends turned into cooking schools in her 18th-century Provençal farmhouse and in her studio in Paris.
The book is filled with full-color photos from both of her kitchens and features plates, utensils, tableware and linens from her own collection.
Inspired by the pristine countryside of Provence and the bustling city life of Paris, Patricia shares some of her best recipes—many of which are favorites in her cooking classes including three of our favorites: Zucchini “Spaghetti” with Garlic Tahini Dressing; Mussels with Lemon, Capers, Jalapeno and Cilantro; and Seared Duck Breast with Fresh Figs and Black Currant Sauce.
Oui! Oui!
