My mother is moving and gave me a few little cooking book gems. This one is a 1937 edition and reads like a novel. Tante Marie includes the manners with which to invites guests over for dinner, how to pick them, family dinner procedures etc...! And the cover is so cute!
The back lists other books like the Fishing Guide of Uncle Pierre. Back when times were simple? (or not- world war did come 2 years after...). in any event, I'm reading it like a novel!

The Cook's Cook is a free high quality magazine and featuring an article about Clotilde Dusoulier and I. How Edible French came to be published.
It features a family recipe of Chestnut mille Feuille that we call a "coupable" a "guilty" :)
The article is page 39.

Temperatures are plumetting over here. Winter equals soups. Rich laurel, peppercorn, gingery vegetable soups for the heart and soul. Thickened with lentils, floury potatoes or bits of crusty bread. A splash of double cream or a spoonful of blue cheese. Or some coconut milk for some added smooth exotic smell. All made in the lovely family "cocotte" or "caquelon".
