In Les Fruits, author Pascale Beale takes inspiration from, among other things: an Alpine hike during a summer family reunion; the generosity of neighbors who shared from their abundant gardens; a Salvador Dali painting; the irresistible bounty found at the local farmers markets; and more, all delightfully intertwined with indelible childhood memories of cooking with her French grandmother and their shared obsession of searching for the perfect piece of fruit.
Highlighting the tastes, colors and textures of twenty different fruits, Pascale has created nearly 100 recipes, brimming with glorious colors, innovative ingredients, and savory and sweet surprises. Her passion for great food, seasonal ingredients and unexpected flavor combinations, along with her sense of style and ease, make this, her seventh book, a must-have for experienced and aspiring cooks alike.
Wildly colorful, thoroughly engaging and with spectacular dishes that both satisfy and impress, Les Fruits is as luscious, compelling and welcome as the first ripe peach of summer.

'Pascale's instructions and comments are fun to read and easily understandable, and I love the fact that each recipe is accompanied by a gorgeous photograph, so I know how the finished dish should look. That fruit as the main ingredient in a dish could be so enticing was a genuine discovery for me, and I know you will appreciate this foray into "fruitage" as much as I have. Wishing you good company, good food and great wine.' -- From the Foreword by Karen Steinwachs
