I couldn’t put down this cookbook.
“To build the living room before the kitchen of the house would be ruin.” – Count of Neufchateau
French Country Cooking by Mimi Thorisoon is fantastic. Its a thick, and by thick I mean I almost lost a limb when I picked it up. It’s 336 pages of photos, recipes, wine notes, and even illustrations of the house her family lived in. The book its self is bound with a cloth binding on the spine, and the covers are thick and sturdy. The pages are thick as well.
The recipes contain both measurements so your not lost googling what 2 kgs are. By the way it’s 4.4 pounds. Most of the recipes correspond with a the photos next to it. Some of the ingredients confuse the heck out of me, but Mimi tells you how to make the item, or its simple to look it. I am very excited to try the butternut pancakes with sage brown butter. It screams Thanksgiving morning. Im sure that Quail is something that is very common in France if not many European countries, but where I live, not so much.
The contents are in english with french terms woven in. The cookbook feels and looks elegant. It will be great in the line of my favorite cookbooks that I use most often in my kitchen.
Also, there are dog photos all over this book! Cuteness overload.
