Overview

A delightful collection of small, French-inspired bites. Le Petit Paris contains countless recipes for the best French finger food this side of Paris. Nathalie Benezet combines two of her favorite things—snacking and original French cuisine—in this charming collection of small bites, perfect to whip up for any occasion. The inspired recipes come straight from the streets of Paris and from Nathalie’s family kitchen in the Auvergne region of the south of France. Le Petit Paris shares simple and easy-to-follow recipes for both savory and sweet nibbles. Magnificently tempting savory snacks include a bite-sized version of the much-loved Croque Monsieur made from Nathalie’s family recipe, as well as other French favorites in cute mini form, such as baby quiches and pâtés. For those with a penchant for French sweets, Nathalie shares her tried-and-tested Parisian macarons and classic pastries and cakes such as mini croissants, financiers, and profiteroles. Traditional French recipes are also given a modern twist across both savory and sweet snacks—impress your friends with Scallop Toast, Foie Gras Burgers, Champagne Granite and Strawberries, and Nathalie’s signature Melting Chocolate Cake—all in an adorable petite size! These snacks are the perfect accompaniment to a lazy morning in bed, an afternoon of tea and chit chat, or an evening of cocktails and antics. With a fun, whimsical design and an inspired selection of recipes, Le Petit Paris turns snacking into a delicate art form. It is a cookbook containing all things tasty and French.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
“Nathalie Benezet actually achieves her goal of offering little French snacks which are ‘delicious but also simple.’ Benezet’s little bites actually deliver big results with minimal effort. Make no mistake, there’s nothing semi homemade about her finger foods: you will bake, you will flambé; you will rinse snails. But unlike other “easy French cookbooks” you will actually do these things rather than just stare wistfully at the pictures, and – with help from Benezet – you will do them well.” ~Metrosource

“…newer cooks trying to replicate their favorite flavors from a trip to Paris will be thrilled…most of the recipes seem simple to put together yet highly craveable…” ~Katie at the Kitchen Door

“This charming little tome filled with delicate French delights is sure to please as recipe book, luncheon party favor or special token for a dear friend.” ~Beverly Drive Magazine

“True to her word, almost all the food is modern and miniature, making them the prefect party foods. And lest you think these are for adults only, think again. What may be really small for an adult may actually be perfectly proportioned for a kid…” ~Epicurious.com

“…bite-size bits of bliss. Divided into savory and sweet yummies…tiny never seemed so tasty.” –France Magazine
