about

In this lavishly photographed, stunning cookbook, Mimi Thorisson--inspired by her family's move to a new home, a massive old stone building that once housed a restaurant and inn--takes readers on a captivating trip to off-the-beaten-path French wine country with 100 simple yet exquisite recipes inspired by the characters who inhabit their quaint village.


Readers everywhere fell in love with Mimi Thorisson, her family, and their band of smooth fox terriers through her blog, Manger, and debut cookbook, A Kitchen in France. In French Country Cooking, the family moves to an abandoned hôtel particulier, and--through shopping for local ingredients, cooking, and renovating their house--meets the famers and artisans who populate their new village and learns about the former owner of their house, an accomplished local cook. Here are recipes inspired by this eccentric cast of characters, including Ham and Cheese Feuilleté, Wine Harvest Pot au Feu, Asparagus Gratin, and Apricot Beignets. Featuring 150 evocative photographs taken by Mimi's husband, Oddur Thorisson, this cookbook is a charming jaunt to an untouched corner of France that has thus far eluded the spotlight.

Editorial Reviews

“Amid Mrs. Thorisson’s recipes are stories of the home’s past, as told to her by previous owners and village old-timers. Readers will learn tales of multiple generations of cooks together in the French country kitchen.” —The Wall Street Journal“Food blogger Mimi Thorisson’s life in Médoc is basically a real-life fairytale. If you’re tempted to buy a one-way ticket to the south of France after reading her sophomore cookbook, which features 100 delicious recipes peppered with details about how she transformed an old chateau into a homey restaurant, we wouldn’t blame you.” —InStyle  “Francophiles and armchair travelers who loved Dorie Greenspan’s Around My French Table and David Lebovitz’s My Paris Kitchen will gladly add this classic title to their collections.”—Library Journal, starred review“If you’re the sort of person whose idea of fun is watching Chocolat for the hundredth time and fantasizing about renting Julia Child’s Provençal farmhouse to cook madelines and cassoulet for your family, then Mimi Thorisson’s cookbook, French Country Cooking, is perfect for you. This is the cookbook as daydream, with terribly pretty pictures of women fluttering tablecloths in rustic kitchens, of little girls lugging baskets of produce, of baguettes and Citroëns and vineyards and pans of broiled oysters.”—Los Angeles Times“Blogger and author Mimi Thorisson has a new cookbook out that will kindle a delicious love affair with the cuisine of the French countryside. Starring the best-quality ingredients sourced from small outdoor markets, family-owned purveyors and home gardens, this collection of recipes elevates a simple, humble cuisine to the highest level.”—FoodRepublic.com
