From the French countryside, to rugged New Zealand, to the New England coast, Beatrice Peltre brings us a book of recipes, stories, and photographs inspired by her life--classic and delicious, always with a twist. Taking us on a journey, not only through the meals of our day and the tools of our kitchen, but to the places we visit in our memories and travels, Peltre uses her life as an example to inspire ours.
Peltre uses unexpected ingredients in traditional dishes and creates recipes that are effortlessly healthful and balanced. Similarly, her photographs show not just the food, but the mood around the food--the colors, the flavors, the setting--to show how it feels to create and enjoy something that is both beautiful and delicious. Bea's stories are sometimes as simple as the little conversation she has with her husband about breakfast before she rolls out of bed to make some homemade granola; other times she takes you on her travels, sharing all the rich senses of the place and the recipe it inspires. All together, these elements create an incredibly warm ambience that invites the reader to share in the beauty and simple pleasures of life, with food at the heart of it.
