Editorial Reviews

From Barnes & Noble

"A fresh approach to everything edible" is how Paris-based restaurateur/cooking show host Rachel Khoo describes her culinary philosophy. Her English-language book debut The Little Paris Kitchen, which borrows its title from her BBC cooking show, sets out that cooking creed with 120 French and French-influenced recipes. Her modern take on classics like Coq au vin and Tartine Tatin demonstrate her culinary fluency.

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.

    The book is an excellant companion to the series of TV programme

    The book is an excellant companion to the series of TV programmes that were shown on the BBC in the UK. It easily dispels the secrets of French cooking with easy to follow recipes. To see the size, or lack of size, of Rachel's Paris kitchen gives you confidence when trying the recipes. If in the States, demand to obtain a DVD of the programmes. 'You can smell the French food from the UK.' I am sure you will have a similar experience in the USA. I am buying a copy of the book for my american bother-in-law, who has taken up cookery as a serious hobby.

    I¿ve read the entire book and cooked several of the recipes. F

    I’ve read the entire book and cooked several of the recipes. From crispy rabbit with mustard to onion and crème fraiche tart. The recipes are excellent, straight forward (if you know how to cook), and fun to put together. This is food I use mostly for entertaining or just plain experimenting at home.
    The preamble to the recipes is interesting and worth the read. Many times there’s no preamble at all or it simply misses the point. The ones in this book are not so long as to be numbing or make you avoid it, before getting to the good stuff.
    French cooking is a way of life not just a set of recipes. I think Rachel brings that aspect out in her book in an inspiring way.
    I rate this book as excellent for the following reasons: inspiring, beautiful pictures, mostly unique recipes, excellent recipes and interesting preambles to the recipes.
