Descriptions du produit

Revue de presse

“A Kitchen in France…encourages us to cook together and share good food and wine with people we love.”
--The Wall Street Journal
“This highly personal and friendly book encourages readers to really appreciate ingredients, and time spent in the kitchen and at the table.”
--Cherry Bombe

“Equally enthralling as her recipes is Thorisson’s seemingly effortless conjuring of a rustic dream life, often exquisitely illustrated by her husband’s photography…”

“If you’ve ever read Mimi Thorisson’s blog, Manger, you know what it is to envy her life, full of long walks through the French countryside with her children and seeming endless brigade of dogs, which end at home with bushels full of produce that she effortlessly turns into feasts, all cassoulets and tarts and roasts and good wine to wash it all down. But if you’re going to buy one aspirational cookbook this fall, it’s Mimi’s—because you’ll actually take on many of her recipes, and absorb a bit of her style of entertaining in the process.”

“Mimi Thorisson’s picture-perfect life would almost be too idyllic to bear if she weren’t so generous: This lovely home cook willingly shares culinary secrets in her popular blog of two and a half years, Manger, along with a host of classic French recipes in a brand-new cookbook, A Kitchen in France. She leads her life with enviable style, from mothering seven children and wrangling the family’s 14 dogs to elegantly serving up a cognac-infused coq au vin.”

"You'll want to live in Mimi Thorisson's A Kitchen In France. The beautifully shot book includes decadent dishes such as butternut squash gratin and crepes with salted-butter caramel."
“In this warm and inviting collection, Thorisson…brings readers into her farmhouse in Médoc… [W]hile the appeal of this collection rests firmly on its recipes, the incredible photographs capture life in the French countryside. Sidebars on everything from dried grapevines and wine to garlic and visits to the butcher add little details that transport the reader to this bucolic, idyllic world where Thorisson is the perfect host.”
—Publishers Weekly, starred review
“No slave to received wisdom, Thorisson has tinkered with [Médoc’s] outstanding seasonal meats, vegetables, and fruits to generate a very personal sort of cuisine, which she now shares with her devotees.”

"This is real food: delicious, honest recipes that celebrate the beauty of picking what is ripe and in season, and capture the essence of life in rural France."
—Alice Waters

“Mimi Thorisson’s gorgeous new book, A Kitchen in France, is a charming window into an idyllic life in Médoc. While we can’t all live in a beautiful farmhouse surrounded by lush woods, handsome children, and inquisitive terriers, at least we can now re-create at home our own slice of heaven with Mimi’s delectable cherry clafoutis.”
—April Bloomfield, author of A Girl and Her Pig
“Mimi’s book is an enchanting look at French-style country cooking, and it will make you run to the stove to re-create the delicious traditions it celebrates.”
—Clotilde Dusoulier, author of The French Market Cookbook

Présentation de l'éditeur

With beguiling recipes and sumptuous photography, A Kitchen in France transports readers to the French countryside and marks the debut of a captivating new voice in cooking.
When Mimi Thorisson and her family moved from Paris to a small town in out-of-the-way Médoc, she did not quite know what was in store for them. She found wonderful ingredients—from local farmers and the neighboring woods—and, most important, time to cook. Her cookbook chronicles the family’s seasonal meals and life in an old farmhouse, all photographed by her husband, Oddur. Mimi’s convivial recipes—such as Roast Chicken with Herbs and Crème Fraîche, Cèpe and Parsley Tartlets, Winter Vegetable Cocotte, Apple Tart with Orange Flower Water, and Salted Butter Crème Caramel—will bring the warmth of rural France into your home.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Ce livre est une merveille 2 novembre 2014
Par N007
Le livre de Mimi Thorisson est tout aussi merveilleux et chaleureux que son blog, plein de choses non seulement délicieuses mais aussi de considérations poétiques et essentielles pour tout gastronome.
Tout cela en restant précis, riche, détaillé : chaque recette est expliquée avec soin et application.
La générosité et la recherche du "beau & bon" se ressent tout au long du feuilletage de l'ouvrage, c'est un plaisir et une joie de lire et relire ces recettes pleines de ce qui reste le plus important en cuisine : l'amour du geste et du produit.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 A treat for those who enjoys French home cooking 31 octobre 2014

I first discovered Mimi's blog, Manger, about a year ago when I was searching for a cherry clafoutis recipe. Ever since, I have been a faithful follower and couldn't be more excited when she announced that her book was coming soon. If you're a follower of the blog, you'll see her seasonal, unfussy approach to French home cooking reflected in this book.

At first glance, I was afraid most of the recipes were a little more involved since I had limited experience with French cooking. Having made some dishes from her blog before, I decided to peruse the book a few times before marking recipes that I was ready to take on. So far, I have made these dishes:

crepes with salted butter caramel (simple but delicious, you don't need a crepe pan)
fava bean soup (I'll skip the mint next time)
roast chicken with creme fraiche (amazing, I found that rubbing salt and pepper on the chicken first before rubbing the creme fraiche gave me better result, pair it with roasted potato for a complete meal)
pan-seared chicken breast with spring onions (I wasn't too excited about this one, kind of bland compared to her other chicken dishes)
tomato tart (if you're short on time, use store-bought crust. The crust got a little soggy so make sure to add extra flour at the bottom to absorb liquid from tomato)
mustard roasted poussins (I used chicken thigh. It's becoming one of my favorite chicken recipes.)
butternut gratin (a new recipe for butternut squash, will definitely make this again for Thanksgiving or Christmas)

All of the recipes that I have tried so far are are well written and not too complicated for a home cook like myself.

I would love to try these recipes in the future: coq au vin, duck confit parmentier, aniseseed sweetbreads with glazed turnips, bouillabaisse, pistacho sabayon with strawberries and meringues, seared foie gras with grapes and figs, pork cheek raviolis with cepes, calvados and creme fraiche apple tart (would make a great dessert for Thanksgiving or Christmas), garden cake (when berries are in season again), coffee cream puffs, chestnut veloute, salted butter creme caramel, and chestnut ice cream.

Other recipes that seem interesting but probably unrealistic for me to hunt down the ingredients would be black locust flower fritters (wouldn't even know where to get these), calves's liver a la bordelaise (need a good butcher shop), and escargots a la bordelaise.

This is a wonderful collection of well written recipes from Mimi's kitchen. I truly enjoyed her stories of food, people, and life in the French countryside. Her husband's beautiful photography not only augmented her stories but transported me to Medoc. What makes her even more likeable is her embracement of her Chinese heritage and desire to introduce that to her children. The end of the book features a few recipes that she makes annually for Chinese New Year which I will definitely try since I haven't made anything similar except for wonton soup.

My only gripe is thirty percent of the recipes in the book are found on her blog so this book gets 4 stars instead of 5 for the review--something to consider before buying this book. Overall this is a wonderful book for cooks who love French home cooking. This book is inviting, comforting, and full of soul. I was truly inspired to get into the kitchen and start cooking more French dishes.

3.0 étoiles sur 5 This is after all, foremost a cookbook, right? 21 novembre 2014
Par Big Sky - Publié sur Amazon.com

Eagerly anticipating this book, I poured a glass of wine when it arrived and read it cover to cover. The photographs are gorgeous, Miim and her family and home are gorgeous. I do wonder, however, how many of the 5 star reviews have actually cooked from the book. How can you give a cookbook a 5 star review if you haven't tried a single recipe,? One reviewer claims she loves every recipe in the book--the book was released just last week. I prepared the Onion Tart, the Butternut Squash Gratin and the Roast Chicken with Crème Fraîche and Herbs. I chose these recipes as they seemed most accessible to the home cook. The onion tart was overly sweet and lacked depth of flavor, the chicken was juicy but bland, and the butternut squash also lacked depth and seemed overly sweet. Mimi says to "slice" the garlic and the shallot for the chicken. Hmmm, look at the picture, the garlic and the shallot are chopped. I followed the recipe to the letter and the shallot was overly cooked while the sliced garlic was distributed unevenly. The food reserves two stars at best, the writing is self-absorbed and repetitive, but the stunning photography prompted me to give three stars. This is after all, foremost a cookbook, right?

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Beautiful Food, Beautiful Living . . . 29 octobre 2014

This book is truly gorgeous. The combination of how photogenic Mimi Thorisson is, her family, home and the countryside plus the dishes cooked and served on French porcelain with pink roses makes beautiful viewing, page after page. Her husband, Oddur Thorisson is a professional photographer and dog breeder. His eye along with their life together has produced a tome that is more than a cookery book, it is a photographic biography of their lives. Most rare of all is the sincere generosity of her writing, making recipes and their lifestyle accessible.

Many reviews online speak of lifestyle envy as though we could aspire to living like they do. I would suggest instead an admiration for people who are so clearly living their passion and doing it with an entourage of seven offspring and terriers too numerous to count. Can you imagine feeding them all? Well, look through this book and you'll see how this is done -- gracefully, with patience and a lot of pure happiness. That's worth taking a look, in and of itself.

Reading about the family's arrival in the winter a few years ago, especially the disappearance of two puppies and their desperate search to find them illustrates Thorisson's sensibility about whether the move to the Medoc region was meant for them after all. Her writing reveals her approach to the seasons and how the recipes are meaningful to her, e.g., her Aunt Francine's recipe for fava bean soup and her father disappearing to eat Chinese noodles at a restaurant nearby while waiting for their order to arrive. I love savory souffles and tarts myself so am planning to try her recipe for artichoke souffle very soon.

What I have found is that rather than envying the largesse of this family's life in France, this book inspires me to live and cook according to my own passions, right where I am. That's saying a lot for a book that just arrived yesterday.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 A kitchen in France 29 octobre 2014
Par Armansmom - Publié sur Amazon.com
I just received my book and it's everything
I thought it would be. Very well written, Beautiful pictures and amazing recipes.
I've been following her blog for awhile and
I have to say I was really looking forward to this book.
Her Panna cotta was my go-to easy dessert this summer, perfect texture and sweetness and it received many compliments every time I made it.
I lost count of favorites since they were so many but canelés and onion tarts will be first on my list to make.
Best of all I know what everyone is getting this Christmas!!
Buy it, You'll be glad you did!!

This book is incredible. Really, it is. I am so happy with this cookbook. It reads just like an extension of Mimi’s blog Manger and is full of her husband’s beautiful photos. I especially love the small illustrations by Anna Bond. I also love how it is split into the four seasons, so that I can use the cookbook over the course of the year. Mimi gives great details on her recipes and it’s a joy to read each accompanying story about her life and family and what each recipe means to them.
