Rachel Khoo moved to Paris, studied patisserie, fell in love with the city, became a restaurateur in a very tiny space, then, a television star, and is now a bestselling author! Not every lover of Paris experiences this career trajectory, but cooks of all skill levels with a taste for French fare will be inspired by The Little Paris Kitchen to try an updated approach to French cuisine. In this charming cookbook, Khoo demystifies French cooking with 120 enticing recipes for simple, classic, and fresh French dishes, from gouter (snacks) to elegant desserts. More than 100 breathtaking photos from celebrated photographer David Loftus shine a spotlight on the delicious food and the City of Light, and capture Khoo interacting with her purveyors and friends. We all can't have springtime in Paris. But we all can enjoy this delectable, do-able food!

There are so many recipes I want to try--they look delish! I think I just might purchase this book. Beautifully presented.

Rachel Khoo takes some of the mystery out of French cooking and makes it much less intimidating. Some of the recipes are very quick and easy and most of them are classic dishes with an original or simplified twist, while offering little hints to avoid disasters. All of the dishes are displayed with beautiful photos. Both novice cooks or experienced foodies will enjoy this book. Can’t wait to try the Poulet aux champignons avec une sauce au bin blanc (Chicken and mushrooms in a white wine sauce) or the Quatre0quarts aux agrumes (Citrus fruit cake).
