Description

Paris Express is a book of quick modern French recipes that will have you breezily whipping up gorgeous French meals in the blink of an eye. While not every recipe here is a 15-minute miracle'some do take a little bit of time, but no effort?each one will transport you into a Paris state of mind?a place of insouciance, whimsy, beauty and delight . . . frankly, to a place where time slows down a bit.

There is a misconception about French cooking that it consists solely of foods either slow and old-fashioned or technical and tedious. Of course tradition still thrives in France and continues to comfort, and of course three-star chefs still innovate and dazzle; but between those extremes is a spontaneous kind of cooking, a way of everyday eating and entertaining that’s last-minute and often improvised, yet as beautiful, nourishing and soul-restoring as ever. This is the everyday home cooking of busy Parisians today, people who, like the rest of us, look at their watches at the eleventh hour and wonder what on earth to have for dinner.

With full-colour photography, roughly 120 fabulous recipes, sample menus and a generous smattering of art de vivre tips and ideas, Paris Express is a confidence-building companion for home cooks who have no time to fuss, but who crave instant cheer, indulgence and inspiration.
