In The Paris Gourmet , Trish Deseine serves up a definitive guide to French cuisine, divulging her secrets on all aspects of Gallic food and entertaining. Her extensive black book of foodie addresses in Paris and online is an essential resource for stocking your kitchen with indispensible cooking utensils and table trimmings, procuring the best ingredients, or dining at her most treasured restaurants. Her practical advice covers everything from selecting produce at the market to a sampling of her favorite French recipes. Trish distills tips gleaned over two decades of living in France into lists of "rules" on all aspects of enjoying food and entertaining tips from hosting a great cocktail party to being the perfect guest. A glossary of French cookery terms completes this handsome book that features a leatherette binding and ribbon page marker. Trish has become one of France's most celebrated food writers thanks to her unpretentious approach to food. This accessible book provides all the information you need to delight in French culinary traditions-in the style of Patricia Wells's seminal Food Lover's Guide to Paris - and to host like a true Parisienne.
