Oui, s'il vous plaît

This Feral household is très excited about Dorie Greenspan’s newest book, Around My French Table. Her Baking book never fails and so far, so good with this one. To date we’ve tried a very simple cauliflower soup with which we made the most scrumptious gougères ever. (We froze most of them since we’re planning on lots of soups this winter.) And tonight I made moules marinière. My first mussels ever. And definitely not my last. (Even JA kept dipping bread in my sauce, even though she doesn’t really eat shellfish.) Délicieux!

Gorgeous Gougères

Moules Marinière

I love how the book is written. It feels very casual, like she is talking to you, but there is nothing casual about it. No guess work. No wondering what she means. It is all spelled out and easy to follow. I find myself reading this cookbook. I never read cookbooks. Seriously.

What to make next? I vote for swiss chard pancakes.
