I like Rachel Khoo. There are a lot of photos of her hanging out with her amis in this book in beautiful full skirts. Having said that, I like her, so I am not too troubled. You may feel differently. But the recipes are clear and distinct, and I find it a good spotlight on regional French Cuisine, about which I know essentially nothing. Khoo's interest in adding flavours from Southeast Asia into French dishes with some regularity is also very appealing to me, as I can find some rarefied "French" ...more

For a long time, I’ve wanted to visit France. I remember sitting in my high school French class daydreaming of what it would be like to travel there, trying out my few words on the locals. Years have passed, my limited vocabulary is long gone and my dream remains unfulfilled — that is, until now. Through Rachel Khoo’s My Little French Kitchen, I have finally travelled to France, all without ever leaving my kitchen. With the help of scrumptious recipes, beautiful photography, and fun accounts of ...more

My flatmate bought this yesterday. It's divided into sections by region of France, and there are quite a lot of photos of Rachel 'experiencing' each area... So far pretty much everything looks delicious - especially Daube Provencale au rose (veal stew - p148), Jambonneau a la biere (p241) & Terrine aux cerise's noires (p128). This will be updated when we've cooked some of the recipes! ...more

I am utterly and totally obsessed with this book! It is so much more than a cookbook. It's like you get to go and live in each little town the recipes are from. This may sound strange but even the texture of the paper is amazing. If I could give this book ten stars I so so would. ...more
RACHEL Khoo’s latest cookbook follows on from her bestseller The Little Paris Kitchen.
In My Little French Kitchen, the British chef travels France and gets to the heart of local dishes and ingredients. From the “snow-topped mountains and spice-laden Christmas markets of Alsace to the winemaking region of Bordeaux, the dreamy vistas and sun-drenched vegetable dishes of Provence and the well-stocked larders and coastlines of Brittany and Normandy”.
Khoo’s mission was to travel France and unearth l

can honestly say i was never bored with this one. some of it sounded kind of weird (crab/kiwi tartare, a seafood crumble done how you might a fruit crumble, a blood sausage and apple pie), some of it sounded interesting (carrot tarte tatin, a charlotte filled with canteloupe folded into fromage blanc and topped with crystallized flowers), and some of it got bookmarked and saved immediately (cannelloni nicoise, bread roll fondue, chocolate eggs).

Luscious culinary armchair trip through France

Rachel Khoo has enabled me to visit the different regions and cuisines of France. Her twists on traditional French recipes seem accessible to the home cook. The pictures and illustrations were beautiful.

If you are interested in cookbooks, this may be one that you would like to add to your collection. This is not a good book for gluten intolerant, dairy intolerant, or vegetarians. Also if you do not eat pork, you might want to avoid this book.

this is probably ideal for someone who likes seafood or various veggie combos that are normally on the plain ole shelf in the fruits and veggie sections but, i am not one of those people i am not a seafood fan not at all and that is what 97% of the protein was in this cookbook. and the food combos were not that delicious sounding for me. it was not my cup of tea so to speak but for someone who enjoys that type of food this would be a great resource.

My Little French Kitchen is a wonderful cookbook that introduces us (or re-introduces) to every day French home cooking! I can't wait to make more of the recipes in Rachel Khoo's My Little French Kitchen and introduce my family to more dishes I grew up with in France!

This cook book has a lovely and light feeling. It's evocative of summer (even though there's a stop in winter wonderland Alsace at the end of her tour around France). Taken altogether, this is a collection recipes that I loved reading about and am actually going to be preparing and eating. ...more

The food isn't really what we think of as French, but is food she designed while living in France and using local ingredients. Even though it's not true French the recipes are still mouthwatering and extremely tempting.

Bought this just for the canele recipe.

Haven't had a chance to cook anything yet, but I love Little Paris Kitchen, and the visible kitchen abuse will attest to that, so I suspect this one will get used a lot too.

Rachel takes you from the streets of Paris to all over France, exploring so many amazing areas deep in food culture.

Rachel Khoo's adaptations of recipes from different regions of France, with some French history and personal anecdotes, so that you can visualize the regions from which the recipes are derived. Accessible, not overly-complicated, with a lot of seafood and vegetable dishes (two of the reasons I wanted to read this book), and all prepared without a lot of fancy equipment or specialty pans or appliances. Great photos of the dishes as well. ...more

I fell in love with Rachel Khoo and her recipes in her book Rachel Khoo's Kitchen Notebook.

So when I found this book smashed between two cooking books, with the cover torn and some pages damaged, I didn't care, it was the last one and I really wanted a copy; it would have been lovely to have a brand new one but still this babe is mine!

The book has over 100 recipes from france, from Brittany, Bordeaux, Basque, Provence, Lyon, and Alsace. The recipes are unique and oh so French!

Lovely cookbook filled with stories and recipes of Rachel Khoo as she travels around France finding the best produce to prepare delicious French food.
Easily would have been 4 stars if I ate seafood as so much of this was seafood heavy. The good photography was really impressive.
