Dorie Greenspan has been called “a culinary guru” by The New York Times. Julia Child was a fan. And...there's more. Dorie is the author of the James Beard Award-winning Baking: From My Home to Yours, which inspired the creation of the online baking community “Tuesdays with Dorie.” Currently, her brand new book, Around My French Table, is winning raves and fans. (It is GORGEOUS!) According to New York Journal of Books, Around My French Table is “positively chock full of new interpretations of old classics as well as a few surprising new recipes.” The reviewer added, “In addition to all the wonderful recipes, her anecdotal tidbits about life in Paris are priceless.”
Dorie, who is one of the most admired of American cooks, has been visiting Paris for more than three decades and has been living there part time for the past thirteen years. In her new book, she shares the remarkable dishes – some classic, many surprising and new – that she and her French friends cook at home every day.
Around My French Table is not French cooking by the rulebook. This is the author’s “French kitchen journal” – her own synthesis of the food she’s been passionately involved with for all these years – true elbows-on-the-table food that can be made and enjoyed by everyone.
This is a book that shows how people in France eat and cook now – a timely and engaging reminder that America’s love affair with French food is as passionate and as exciting as ever.
We will be providing homemade refreshments for this event – Library staff members will be choosing from the "more than 300" recipes to prepare from Dorie's French table!
A book signing will follow the presentation. Books will be available for purchase. (Think Holiday Gift Giving!!!)
Dorie Greenspan’s appearance is made possible by Barrett Bookstore.
