In Chocolate & Zucchini, Dusoulier provides a glimpse into the life of a young Parisian as she savors all that the city has to offer. An endearing companion, she shares her cooking philosophy in the form of more than 75 recipes that call for the natural, healthy ingredients of which she is fond (such as zucchini) and the satisfying tastes she craves ( such as chocolate). The Los Angeles Times calls her recipes simple, charming, and fun.
Appetizers such as Tuna and Green Apple Mousse or Cumin Cheese Puffs, sandwiches and tarts like Tomato Tatin, soups like Chestnut and Mushroom, main dishes of Mustard Chicken Stew or Hand-Cut Steak Tartare, and desserts like Chocolate and Caramel Tart or Yogurt Cake can all be found alongside menus for entertaining, as well as tips for throwing cocktail or dinner parties with French flair.
Illustrated throughout with Dusoulier’s evocative photography, Chocolate & Zucchini is the book for anyone who has journeyed to Paris and can still recall the delicious tastes and aromas—or for those of us who only dream about them.
