The debut cookbook from The Cook's Atelier-the international culinary destination and cooking school in Burgundy-is a beautifully photographed resource on classic French cuisine and an atmospheric chronicle of a family's life in a charming French village.
Mother and daughter American expats Marjorie Taylor and Kendall Smith Franchini always dreamed of living in France. With a lot of hard work and a dash of fate, they realized this dream and cofounded The Cook's Atelier, a celebrated French cooking school in the storybook town of Beaune, located in the heart of the Burgundy wine region. Combining their professional backgrounds in food and wine, they attract visitors from near and far with their approachable, convivial style of cooking.
Featuring more than 100 market-inspired recipes and 300 exceptional photographs, this comprehensive reference is an extension of their cooking school, providing a refreshingly simple take on French techniques and recipes that every cook should know-basic butchery, essential stocks and sauces, pastry, dessert creams and sauces, and preserving, to name a few.
