Joanne Harris Joanne Harris. The wind has always dictated Vianne Rocher's every move, buffeting her from the French village of es to the crowded streets of Paris.

I'm still rather fond of this first book of mine, in spite of all the time that has elapsed, and in spite of the way my style has evolved. Caution - May contain vampires. Cloaked in a new identity, that of widow Yanne Charbonneau, she opens a chocolaterie on a small Montmartre street, determined to still the wind at last and keep her daughters, Anouk and baby Rosette, safe.

A collaboration between a writer who loves food and a former chef who loves writing about food, The French Kitchen gathers together simple yet stylish recipes from the heart of a French family. Fran Warde trained as a chef, she worked at the Café Royale, on an Australian prawn trawler, ran her own cookery school and then moved into food styling and food writing. 5 celery stalks, sliced 4 shallots, sliced bunch of flat-leaf parsley, chopped sea salt, to taste, freshly ground black pepper, to taste 6 (5- to 6-ounce) skinless salmon fillets. 1 lemon, cut into 6 wedges.

It's not surprising that Joanne Harris's novels -- Chocolat, Blackberry Wine, and Five Quarters of the Orange -- celebrate the pleasure and magic of food, since her fondest childhood memories are of making pancakes with her great-grandmother Mémée, picking blackberries with her grandfather in Yorkshire, and exploring the early morning markets of Noirmoutier. Now, with coauthor Fran Warde, Harris shares her treasured collection of family recipes that have been passed down from generation to generation in this illustrated cookbook.

Harris encourages cooks to engage all their senses when cooking -- look at what you're cooking, smell the ingredients, mix them with your fingers, and enjoy their sounds and textures. Cooking, she reminds us, is about as close to magic as modern society allows: to take a handful of simple, fresh ingredients and turn them into something wonderful, otherworldly.

The 120 recipes include French classics such as Onion Soup and Onion Tart, Coq au Vin, and Crème Brûlée, as well as family favorites like Anouchka's Chile Garlic Bread, great-aunt Simone's Marinated Tuna, and great-aunt Marinette's Slow Fudge Sauce. And, of course, there's an entire chapter devoted to chocolate -- cakes, meringues, and spiced hot chocolate.

I've really enjoyed using this cookbook. I purchased it a few years ago and feel it's earned a favorable review; I use this book on a regular basis. The photographs are lovely and the author offers a little background information on each recipe, e.g. where the dish is from, its culinary importance in her family, etc. I actually would have liked a little more information because I enjoy the author's writing, which is why I didn't give it five stars, but that's no big deal. The book is a manageable size/weight with pages that lay flat when pressed down for easy viewing. Another thing I really like is that most of the recipes don't involve a ton of ingredients and/or all kinds of fancy cooking equipment/gadgets. While I can't vouch for the desserts (I'm not a baker), several of the savory recipes have become staples in my cooking repertoire--many of the soups, Gratin Dauphinois, and Cabbage Galette. This cookbook is just a great practical introduction to simple, classic, and delicious, French fare. Definitely worth the money.
I hope the publication of Joanne Harris's latest book will bring some people to this lovely cookbook. My French restauranteur friend says that, to be healthy, we must consume four things every day: almonds, chocolate, real butter, and wine. This book will help you find many ways to do that!

The Lamb Navarin (which we decided that we like even more than Julia Child's Boeuf Bourguignon)and the Gateau Lawrence alone are worth the price of the book. (Try the gateau with some fresh raspberries!)

I am an experienced cook, and I know French cuisine. This is French country cooking at its best, and I'm not sure there's anything better. That said, there's not a recipe in here that even an inexperienced cook couldn't handle.

Highly recommended!
I cannot say enough wonderful things about this cookbook. People have mentioned the beautiful photos and yes, they are certainly there. The writing helps to weave a spell about the recipes. You are not just making a soup, but the soup her aunt used to make when...

The recipes will knock your socks off. The roasted tomato tart is worth the price of the book. My book club was blown away by the bluberry tart. A gluten intolerant guest was thrilled with Gateau Lawrence. (Flourless chocolate. Easy, intense, and will make you a legend among your friends). The soups are excellent too. Oh yes, and the cabbage pie (galette) I made just because it sounded so weird, that was wonderful too. The recipes seem to 'work' if you know what I mean. You may choose to reduce the butter and make adjustments, but they turn out beautifully as written.

One complaint and it is an issue of layout, not content. The recipe introductions are, for some mind boggling reason, printed in very light grey and can be hard to see. Probably the layout design person was in their early 20's with perfect vision! Pretty is nice, but books are meant to be read people!

I'm going to get her other cookbook too, while it's still in hard cover. Buy this. You will use the recipes and love them!
I have always been interested in French Cuisine and leapt at the chance for a few recipes to try! I have read almost all of Joanne Harris books...all of which have all pulled me in, not only with the characters, but the settings and, of course, the food and wine and chocolates! I have already made several of the recipes~all very good and relatively easy, but I must say, my very favorite is the Gluten-free chocolate torte called the Gâteau Lawrence! I have served this for my guests a few times and they just love it!
This book is filled with easy to make (and source) recipes that taste delicious. Living in Europe, I can say that the fare is authentic. The book is filled with beautiful pictures. I had hoped that since the author's husband is a vegetarian that more vegetarian recipes might be included, but many recipes, save for those in the meat chapters, are easily adaptable. The soup and salad sections are amazing, and I've made several of those recipes on multiple occasions: the butternut squash soup isn't to be missed.
This book makes me want to repaint my kitchen to look rustic French and scour antique shops for French style kitchen wares. It's a feast for the eyes and imagination. The recipes are wonderful too, every classic French recipe you can think of almost is there. Plus there is a whole chapter on Chocolate, featuring the recipes from in Joanne Harris' book and film Chocolat. I originally borrowed this from the library but just had to go buy a copy. Cheaper than an airline ticket to France!
This is a delight. I describe it as having Julia Child’s recipes but in an easier to understand and make.
My French Kitchen by Joanne Harris is a very special cookery book filled with wonderful , mouth watering French recipes , lovely photographs and good advice and information. This is a cookbook that any serious cook will want to have and constantly refer to. My French Kitchen is a real keeper, and a great find, and should be on every cook's bookshelves.
I'm entralled with this cookbook , it's loaded with so many wonderful recipes.
