French Comfort Food
By Hillary Davis
In France, people have long taken pride in their deeply rooted traditions and in preserving the recipes of their regional heritage – which means the French have a determined hold on their beloved, classic dishes, the ones that their mothers and grandmothers made.This is French Comfort Food.
Author Hillary Davis collected the recipes in this book from friends and acquaintances made while living in France—recipes handed down through the years, as well as modern family remakes of the originals. Discover French-style brunches, savoury nibbles, family recipes, suppers for friends and the unequalled pleasure of a perfect crème caramel.
With recipes ranging from a divine mac and cheese inspired by Paul Bocuse to aligot, the ultimate mashed potatoes, Davis shows how home cooking à la française is comfort cooking at a whole new level. A terrific cookbook.
