Product Description

In Joie de Vivre, Robert Arbor, a Frenchman transplanted to New York City, explains the French philosophy on life and argues for its adoption by stressed Americans. In a funny way, this is sort of a self-help book for people who admire the French lifestyle, and for those who believe that good food is the secret to a happy life. The premise of the book is that you will find "domestic happiness" when you learn to enjoy the most mundane details of your everyday life: "It's about making time for family, growing some vegetables in your garden, chatting with the butcher and cooking for your family and friends." Quality of life, explains Arbor, is only improved when your pillowcases smell like lavender, and you make your own hot chocolate.

Although there are 50 recipes dispersed throughout the book, Joie de Vivre is not a cookbook. Most of the recipes are for dishes such as A Really Good Fried Egg, mayonnaise and café au lait, but there are interesting ones too, such as Carrot Râpée, Beet Vinaigrette and Fish in Papillotte. The recipes are included more as a way to better describe the French experience and to show how easy it is to adopt as a way of life; a method that works particularly well for those of us who know that the best way to understand and appreciate a foreign culture is through its food. --Leora Y Bloom, Amazon.com

Product Description

It's all right for some. Here's Keith Floyd cooking his way round the Mediterranean, accompanied by a film crew for the television series. Greece, the South of France, Turkey, Spain, Morocco and Tunisia and Egypt are his destinations, where he explores the rich variety of cooking styles that have evolved around the shores of the Middle Sea, all founded basically upon the same seasonally available diet. Thus, in Greece Floyd cooks a beautiful and sophisticated "Fricassee of Spring Lamb with Green Peas and Egg and Lemon Sauce" (it also includes Cos lettuce and baby leeks); and in North Africa, by contrast, the equally stylish but quite different "Lamb Couscous with Root Vegetables and Courgettes".

Keith Floyd is particularly good at capturing this local essence of food and cooking. He has a nose for the unusual and can sniff out unexpected but authentic combinations, an invaluable asset in what is perhaps over-familiar territory. From Spain, for example, a chocolate sauce for lobster; from Tunisia, a beef stew flavoured with coffee. Wherever he goes, the recipes are unfailingly delicious. In characteristic Floyd style, he enthusiastically invades casino kitchens, barbecues on beaches and sets his portable stove up in Roman amphitheatres, everywhere cooking on the spot. His commentaries on the cultures he visits, from Cannes to Cairo, make for ripe and entertaining reading. (Perhaps distancing the book somewhat from the series, he also allows himself some pungent observations on the exigencies of making popular television.) Fans will find this a characteristically expert, inviting and lavishly illustrated guide to these ancient and vibrant cuisines. --Robin Davidson

Product Description

Legendary cook and writer Elizabeth David changed the way Britain ate, introducing a postwar nation to the sun-drenched delights of the Mediterranean, and bringing new flavours and aromas such as garlic, wine and olive oil into its kitchens. This mouthwatering selection of her writings and recipes embraces the richness of French and Italian cuisine, from earthy cassoulets to the simplest spaghetti, as well as evoking the smell of buttered toast, the colours of foreign markets and the pleasures of picnics. Rich with anecdote, David's writing is defined by a passion for good, authentic, well-balanced food that still inspires chefs today.
