Inspirational dishes from the forests, elds and shores of France
Multiple-Michelin-starred Daniel Galmiche presents a fresh approach to French cooking. Taking inspiration and ingredients from meadow and orchard, from field to forest, and from river to sea, each recipe takes authentic French rural classics and elevates them to sophisticated dishes, full of flavour and easy to create at home. French cooking centres around one maxim: start with quality ingredients, and the resulting flavour and freshness of the dish will shine. Daniel shows how to showcase the humblest of ingredients, with tips on how to source them sustainably and seasonally. Starters, mains, sides and desserts are organised by the origin of their key ingredient. From the meadow, gather flowers for a dandelion, wild thyme and lemon cake. From the farmyard, make use of a chicken carcass to create a beautifully clear and nourishing broth. Or from the sea, create a stunning scallop soufflé with mushroom and tarragon cream. With short ingredients lists and straightforward guidance on how to perfect chef-level techniques such as dehydrating and sous-vide without the fancy equipment, this book will allow you to master innovative French cuisine and reduce food waste with simplicity. This is a new and updated edition of the classic Revolutionary French Cookbook, with a timely emphasis on sustainability and responsibly-sourced ingredients.
