About This Book
From the Publisher
Cook from the farmer’s market with inspired vegetarian recipes—many of which are gluten-free and dairy-free—with a French twist, all highlighting seasonal produce.
Beloved ChocolateAndZucchini.com food blogger Clotilde Dusoulier is not a vegetarian. But she has, like many of us, chosen to eat less meat and fish, and is always looking for new ways to cook what looks best at the market. In The French Market Cookbook, she takes us through the seasons in 82 recipes—and explores the love story between French cuisine and vegetables.
Choosing what’s ripe and in season means Clotilde does not rely heavily on the cheese, cream, and pastas that often overpopulate vegetarian recipes. Instead she lets the bright flavors of the vegetables shine through: carrots are lightly spiced with star anise and vanilla in a soup made with almond milk; tomatoes are jazzed up by mustard in a gorgeous tart; winter squash stars in golden Corsican turnovers; and luscious peaches bake in a cardamom-scented custard. With 75 color photographs of the tempting dishes and the abundant markets of Paris, and with Clotilde’s charming stories of shopping and cooking in France, The French Market Cookbook is a transportive and beautiful cookbook for food lovers everywhere.

“Vegetable dishes at their brightest and most imaginative! Clotilde adds a touch of surprise to every recipe. Who needs beef in shepherd’s pie when you can have lentils and broccoli? Not Clotilde . . . and now not moi.” —Dorie Greenspan “ ‘Food blogger’ doesn’t do Clotilde Dusoulier justice. True, she’s amassed a cult following with her pioneering website, but she’s also a journalist with her finger on the pulse of Parisian culture—and an expert and wholly original cook. With its delicious, vegetable-driven take on French cuisine, The French Market Cookbook is a triumph of all Dusoulier brings to the table, as enlightened and joyous as the woman behind it.” —Dan Barber “Coaxing out each ingredient''s true, rich flavor remains the book''s greatest triumph … Dusoulier''s refreshingly simple, yet comprehensive, manual urges that we go to the market to "be surprised and seduced by the ingredients," to which we answer " oui ."” —Saveur.com “We know the French have a way with butter, cheese and wine, but they''re also supertalented with preparing green beans, eggplant and cabbage. And while "healthy French food" may sound like an oxymoron, Clotilde Dusoulier, who lives in Paris and writes the blog Chocolate and Zucchini, promises veggies don''t have to be doused in cream or mixed with a pile of pasta to taste delicious.” – Oprah.com, Th
