Overview

"A gluten-free cookbook that's beautiful enough for your coffee table" (Living Without)—now in paperback.

     What could be sweeter than a life nourished by food and friendship? For Béatrice Peltre, author of the award-winning blog LaTartineGourmande.com, to cook is to delight in the best of what life has to offer—the wholesome foods that feed us in body and soul and that deepen our connections to the people and places we love. Welcome to a world where flavors are collected as souvenirs and shared as heirlooms, and where the dishes we create are expressions of our joie de vivre.
     Expand your gluten-free repertoire by using whole grains like amaranth, quinoa, millet, buckwheat, rice, and nut flours, which lend surprising depth of flavor and nutrients, even to desserts. With nearly 100 gratifyingly nutritious recipes, La Tartine Gourmande takes you on a journey, not only through the meals of the day but around the world. Though Béa's style is largely inspired by her native France, you'll find a wide array of influences, as she brings creative twists to classic recipes—all while remaining effortlessly healthful and balanced.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"The book reads like a dream. Every beautifully photographed recipe is indeed an inspiration, and Peltre's food is full of surprises. The biggest surprise, though, is the fact that this book is almost entirely gluten-free. All of her tarts, muffins, cookies, and cakes are made without wheat flour, and the results are revelatory. If you've never experimented with gluten-free baking, this is the book to show you how."—Fine Cooking

"Her food and photographs are appealing: fresh and lovely, with a distinct French accent. The whole package has a pretty, casually aspirational elegance. After investing in quinoa, rice, buckwheat, and hazelnut flours, I made banana, chocolate, and hazelnut muffins; brown-butter pistachio and poppy-seed financiers; and pretty Pink Lady apple tartlets. Delicious surprises all."—Christine Muhlke, Executive Editor, Bon Appetit (reviewing for The New York Times Book Review)

"Sumptuous and scrumptious . . . here's a gluten-free cookbook that's beautiful enough for your coffee table. Peltre shares both her world view and her out-of-this-world recipes with fresh French flair. Combining the practical with the poetic, the luscious with the lovely, La Tartine Gourmande reads much like a biography, except you'll salivate over the photos. A true 'bon appetite' experience."—Living Without

"I'm thrilled to finally have a La Tartine Gourmande cookbook in my hands. Béa makes beautiful food that's healthy and inspiring. Her photographs will make you want to enter her kitchen and sit down at the table with her, having a good conversation and eating a great meal together."—Shauna James Ahern, author of Gluten-Free Girl and the Chef

"Everything about this book is charming: the writing, the photographs, and the bright, fresh recipes for food you'll want to make every day.  When Bea says this is food 'to inspire' she is telling the simple truth,"—Dorie Greenspan, author of Around My French Table

"As bright as a sunny day in the French countryside, La Tartine Gourmande will inspire cooks with fresh, vibrant vegetables and colorful fruits and berries.  From breakfast through dessert, this lushly photographed book will have cooks everywhere licking their lips... and their plates!"—David Lebovitz, author of The Sweet Life in Paris

"A lovely, personal peek into Beatrice's French-kissed kitchen.  A wonderland of tartines, tatins, and tales of culinary delight.  Bea's book takes an inspired look at gluten-free baked goods and fresh, seasonally inspired day-to-day creations—Cherry Tomato Tartlets Tatin, Omelet Wraps with Nori and Crunchy Vegetables, Brown Butter Pistacio and Poppy Seed Financiers.  Yes, please."—Heidi Swanson, author of Super Natural Every Day

“One look at Béa’s gorgeous book transports you to a world of bright flavors and inspiring recipes, illustrated by vignettes from her charmed life.”—Clotilde Dusoulier, author of ChocolateAndZucchini.com and Clotilde’s Edible Adventures in Paris
