100 Cookies Cookbook

I’m so excited to share with you the cover of my new cookbook, 100 Cookies! My cookbook (originally slated to come oucookbookt October 2020) will be out August 2020, and is available for PREORDER. Chocolatey, fruity, crispy, chewy, classic, inventive—there’s a foolproof recipe for everyone in this book. The book is filled with 100 recipes, ranging from classics (like sugar cookies to oatmeal raisin) to next level (such as raspberry rye and triple chocolate mousse bars), to blondies + brownies. Plus, there is a WHOLE CHAPTER of pan-banging cookies! Find the book available for pre-order at your favorite local bookstore or any of these wonderful booksellers: AMAZON APPLE BOOKS BARNES & NOBLE BOOKTOPIA (AUSTRALIA) INDIEBOUND INDIGO (CANADA) WATERSTONES (UK) Cookies have always been a love language for me, the entire process: mixing, baking, eating, and sharing. Writing this book was both very hard and very fun – testing and retesting 100 recipes was a labor of love, but I enjoyed the entire process (and my children also were ecstatic to come home from school each day to find fresh-baked cookies). I have so many favorite recipes in this collection, and it was honestly hard to stop at 100 – there are […]

Cassoulet Toast

I’m a big fan of traditional Cassoulet. And I’m not alone; a repeated question I get is “Where can I get a good cassoulet in Paris?” The short answer is: To the Southwest of France. Sure, one can pick up a jar of Cassoulet from Castelnaudary, or make it, which I sometimes do. For those who want to tackle the project, there’s a recipe in…

I’m a big fan of traditional Cassoulet. And I’m not alone; a repeated question I get is “Where can I get a good cassoulet in Paris?” The short answer is: To the Southwest of France. Sure, one can pick up a jar of Cassoulet from Castelnaudary, or make it, which I sometimes do. For those who want to tackle the project, there’s a recipe in My Paris Kitchen. But not everyone wants to spend a few days gathering ingredients and sauteeing and simmering them together, then baking, then reheating the behemoth in their oven.

While it’s one of my top favorite dishes in the French food canon, sometimes I don’t want to wait, and remain wary of the jar. So when I saw a recipe for Cassoulet Toast in Open Kitchen: Inspired Food for Casual Gatherings, I was intrigued enough to give it a try. Cookbook author Susan Spungen is one of the top food stylists (she famously styled the food for Eat, Pray, Love and the Julie & Julia film), who noted in the headnote of the recipe that she originally wanted to include a Cassoulet recipe in her book, but decided it was too formidable to hoist on home cooks, so came up with a recipe that captures the flavors that we love about cassoulet; the rich, velvety beans, the caramelized aromatics, and the tender duck confit, all on a slice of crisp, country-style bread.

Tourtiere

I’m not going to beat around the bush here: The new Joy of Cooking is huge. When I first heard about it, I wondered, “Do we need a new Joy of Cooking?” First published in 1931, the book went through several revisions over the years, to become what has the most enduring of all American cookbooks. Yet I wondered if the book would (or could)…

I’m not going to beat around the bush here: The new Joy of Cooking is huge. When I first heard about it, I wondered, “Do we need a new Joy of Cooking?” First published in 1931, the book went through several revisions over the years, to become what has the most enduring of all American cookbooks. Yet I wondered if the book would (or could) still be relevant, in the age of the internet, and as several other books had come along through the year, that could also be considered “encyclopedias” of cooking. I had some doubts.

Thin, Crisp Chocolate Chip Cookies

I recently put my foot in my mouth, again. Speaking at a writer’s conference and rambling on at the podium, as usual, I offered up that I don’t think that cooking or baking as love. It’s cooking and baking. Maybe because I was a restaurant cook for so long and spent decades pumping out food (which would have been a lot of love-making), I think…

I recently put my foot in my mouth, again. Speaking at a writer’s conference and rambling on at the podium, as usual, I offered up that I don’t think that cooking or baking as love. It’s cooking and baking. Maybe because I was a restaurant cook for so long and spent decades pumping out food (which would have been a lot of love-making), I think of food as, well…food.

Of course, right after my talk and I left the podium, the screen behind me flashed in large letters: “Food As Love,” announcing the next topic, followed by a group of food writers coming onto the same stage to talk about how food was love.

Oops.

This Friday, I’ll be in conversation with award-winning writer Michael Ruhlman at Archestratus books in Brooklyn on November 1st, from 6:30 to 8:30 to celebrate the release of his new book, From Scratch.

Michael’s opus to home cooking extols the virtues of mastering basic cooking techniques, which means doable recipes for the perfect roast chicken, as well as traditional cassoulet, the ultimate BLT (with home-cured bacon, for those who want to give that a go), Thai curries, and chocolate profiteroles. There will be time for a Q+A with Michael, whose opinions and observations are always interesting, and sure to provoke some lively discussion. (I promised him that I would pepper him with challenging questions about everything from authenticity, to making crème anglaise with cream.) For more info about the event, and to sign up, visit the Archestratus bookstore website.

On November 12, Join me in a chat at the Chelsea Market in New York with Paris resident Elaine Sciolino to celebrate her new book, The Seine: The River That Made Paris, which follows the famed river’s path, which intersects, organizes, and defines the city of Paris.

Pumpkin Scones These scones are a family favorite, and might be what we wake up to this Christmas morning. “If the world seems cold to you, kindle fires to warm it.” —Lucy Larcom NOTES: Putting another baking sheet nestled directly underneath the one the scones are on helps keep the bottoms of the scones from browning too quickly before they fully bake. If you like the bottoms extra crisp, you can just use one pan. 2 ¼ cups (320 g) all-purpose flour 1/3 cup (66 g) sugar 1 tablespoon baking powder 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon ½ teaspoon ground ginger ¼ teaspoon grated nutmeg ½ teaspoon salt ½ cup unsweetened pumpkin puree 1/3 cup heavy cream, plus more for brushing 1 large egg 1 large egg yolk ½ teaspoon pure vanilla extract 12 tablespoons (1½ sticks; 170 g) unsalted butter, cold and cut into ½-inch pieces Maple Icing 1/3 cup pure maple syrup 1 cup (113 g) confectioners’ sugar ½ teaspoon pure vanilla extract Pinch salt Adjust an oven rack to the lower middle position. Preheat the oven to 400°F. Stack two baking sheets on top of each other and line the top sheet with parchment paper. In a large bowl, […]
