Description: From a French Country Kitchen combines generations of experience and love of good food with an equally great appreciation of how healthy eating and pleasant dining contribute to our health and well-being. Along with offering more than a hundred recipes, this book provides a fascinating, funny, and charming look at the people and the French traditions that inspired the delicious dishes of la Madeleine French Bakery & Cafe.
When Patrick Esquerre founded la Madeleine, he asked his mother, Monique, author of a successful cookbook in France, to bring the best of her recipes to America. These recipes behind la Madeleine reflect Esquerre's roots in the Chateau Country of the Loire Valley of France.
"I would like to share with my American friends the recipes of my home and the favorite dishes of my childhood. The appreciation I learned from my mother for good food, prepared simply, using fresh, all-natural ingredients, would later inspire me to create la Madeleine French Bakery & Cafe in the United States. These recipes are those of my mother and her friends, as well as some contributed from our la Madeleine family members. They represent classic country French cooking and will help you to create happy memories of family and friends around the table sharing wonderful food, wine, and conversation."
