Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
With her first English-language cookbook, Khoo (Pâtes à Tartiner) joins the ranks of design-minded women who have turned business savvy and culinary passion into a creative career. A former fashion publicist who left London to study patisserie in Paris, she is now a globetrotting "food creative" with a BBC television show filmed in her tiny apartment kitchen. Here portrayed as an effortlessly fashionable girl about town, she shares bistro favorites like Moules Marinières, Rillettes au Porc, and Crème Caramel. VERDICT This cookbook offers plenty of visual inspiration for Francophiles who like rustic, honest foods. Already popular abroad, it's a nice introduction to French home cooking.
