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 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 more

Review quote

`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.``` ` ` `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.` -, The Best Cookbooks of Summer 2013 `Dusoulier, you may know, is the wildly popular blogger behind Chocolate and Zucchini, and with her charming new book she is showcasing, as the subtitle puts it, `Vegetarian Recipes From My Parisian Kitchen.` She's a flexitarian these days, but with the cookbook she wants to show readers how to coax flavor out of the best locally grown, seasonal fruits and vegetables without relying on meats (mock or otherwise) or heavy amounts of cheese or even too many carbs.` - Washington Post `90 seasonal recipes that work magic with produce available from yshow more

Our customer reviews

This book has many wonderful clever vegetarian recipes. I have been trying to convert my meat loving family to try vegetarian main meals and this book fits my brief. Pity there are not more photos, however, the meals I have cooked haven't had a photo which proves how good the book is written. The Lentil Croquettes are so tasty, and have taken a photo if anyone wants ! I am looking forward to trying the Chocolate 3-ways mousse dessert. My passion is Cookbooks of all types of cooking, and this book is more
