What a great book. Great veggie recipes, and great stories, exactly what i was looking for. They always make French food sound uber sophisticated, but really, as seen in this book it is mostly simple and fresh. Worth searching for. Here's hoping Marlena writes another book on this subject in the future!
This is one of my preferred cookbooks. I haven't made anything from this cookbook that I wouldn't gladly make again. I particularly love the roasted beet, goat cheese, and sundried tomato dish. If you dislike cheese and butter, then you won't enjoy this cookbook nearly as much as I do. And you probably won't be that keen on Spieler's mac and cheese cookbook either . . .
