Oh, Happy Day! Dorie’s new cookbook has finally arrived! I picked up my copy of Around My French Table last week and was in love before I got past the dust cover. The book is filled with over three hundred of Dorie’s favorite recipes, culled from her time spent in Paris. It’s the kind of unfussy, homey food that you’d find in any French home cook’s kitchen. In true Dorie style, the recipes are very readable, with clear and detailed instructions accompanied by entertaining stories and suggestions for creative tweaks. And, the photographs are perfectly droolworthy – food porn at its best!
Of course, no new Dorie Greenspan cookbook would be complete without a large group of adoring fans waiting in the wings to cook their way through it. There probably aren’t many who haven’t heard of the wildly popular baking group Tuesdays with Dorie. For almost three years, this dedicated group of bloggers has been baking one recipe per week, in tandem, from Dorie’s classic tome, Baking: From My Home to Yours. And now, TWD’s fearless leader, Laurie Woodward has done it again by creating French Fridays with Dorie. That’s right. Each Friday, a new group of Dorie devotees will be cooking a new recipe à la française from Around My French Table.
