At once a repertoire-building cookbook and a stylish guide to easy gathering over food and drink (for families, for friends), A TABLE features 125 simple, elegant recipes that reflect a modern, multicultural French table. Paris-based American food writer Rebekah Peppler includes classics, regional specialties, and dishes with a strong foreign influence. Here are recipes for all the courses, from snacks to desserts, organized into before, during, and after-dinner chapters. Think: Croque Madame and Creme Brulee; Basque Chicken and Nicoise (for a Crowd); Green Shakshuka, Lamb Tagine, and Bamboo Tonic. Information on shopping and stocking your pantry, helpful tips on having people over, and stories on French food culture make this not just a recipe-driven cookbook but also a chic guide to French living. This is for home cooks looking for go-to French meals, hosts who throw casual gatherings, and armchair travelers who love any and all things French.
