My French Family Table by Beatrice Peltre

$ 35.00

From celebrated author and blogger Béatrice Peltre comes a much anticipated second book, focusing on everyday foods (all gluten-free) to share with family and friends. My French Family Table: Recipes for a Life Filled with Food, Love, and Joie de Vivre, contains more than 120 gluten-free recipes for everyday meals, snacks, and sweets--plus ideas for cooking with children.

In her signature style of blending classically French dishes with exotic, modern twists, Peltre offers up recipes for each meal of the day plus the traditional French goûter (afternoon snack), as well as food that she cooks and especially loves to share with her daughter, Lulu.

Peltre ups the ante on what gluten-free foods can be--incredibly tasty, beautiful, and nourishing. Whole grains, colorful produce, spices, and creative use of ingredients abound. Peltre's bright photography, impeccable styling, and sweet storytelling bring the book to life. All these elements come together to create an inspiring collection of recipes for feeding a family and feeding them well. 

This second book from Peltre is inspired not just by the way she lives and cooks in her day-to-day life with her family but by the demand from her fans for a peek into the "secrets" of cooking beautiful food for a family every day.

This books straddles two strong categories--French food and cooking for a family--conveying Peltre's unique perspective. This book is just as colorful and elegant as her first book but focuses on everyday fare and the practicalities of feeding a family the French way.

From basic breads, waffles, and muffins to tarts, cakes, cookies, and crumbles, Peltre's gluten- free recipes always emphasize flavor and health. Unlike many gluten-free recipes that use starchy flours, stabilizers, and extra sugars, Peltre uses whole grains, highlighting their particular flavors, and natural sweeteners.
