To the French, food is one of life’s greatest pleasures, and in B atrice Peltre’s home, each meal is a small celebration. In her kitchen, bright, colorful ingredients are transformed into wholesome, delicious dishes and served with love. Here, B atrice’s relaxed, modern approach to classic French cooking meets the challenge of creating healthy meals for the whole family–meals to be shared table, presented with grace and style.
In My French Family Table, B atrice offers a beautiful assortment of over 120 recipes for naturally gluten-free dishes that feature whole grains, colorful produce, and distinctive spices. Every meal is an inspired work of love–from breakfast dishes such as Buttermilk, Lemon, and Strawberry Brunch Cake to a lunch of French Green Bean Salad with Cro tons, Olives, and Ricotta Salata alongside a healthy soup or vegetable tart. In the afternoon B atrice loves to eat the traditional French go ter with her daughter, Lulu, whose favorite snack is Brown Butter Madeleines with Buckwheat and Chocolate Chips. Who could resist a Sunday supper of Chicken Stuffed with Herbs, Walnuts, and Grainy Mustard, followed by the sweet treat of Baked Apricots with Lemon Verbena or the indulgent Chocolate Mousse with Salted Caramel and Matcha Tea Cookies? B atrice also includes recipes that are particularly child-friendly to cook and eat, inspired by her kitchen adventures with Lulu.
With her creative use of ingredients, B atrice ups the ante on what family foods can be–incredibly tasty, beautiful, and nourishing.
