Now that the goose is in the oven and everyone is having a bit of a pre-dinner nap, I can look at my presents! Honestly, Santa--well, my husband and kids--were really good to me this year. Many many cookbooks. More specifically, I got
"I know how to cook"---Ginette Mathiot---I know someone said that this book duplicates other French cookbooks but after checking it out from the library, I still like it. I like what it presumes I know--reminds me of my recipe for cookies from my grandmother that she got from her mother which lacks all measurements because why would one need actual measurements? Can't wait to try the pumpkin jam recipe this weekend.
"Pork and Sons"---Stephane Reynaud---food porn. hungry just looking at it. Captivated by the photos drawings and little stories.
"French Feasts" ---Stephane Reynaud---More Food Porn.....An afternoon of that book and I'm halfway out the door to catch a plane to France. Still pondering what the first recipe will be--but the pumpkin soup sounds good and easy.
"Eat Me, the philosophy of Kenny Shopsin" -----dark horse, never heard of it but hey, intro by Calvin Trillin. Nice photos, still perusing.
So, how about you?
