Around My French Table

Around My French Table
by Dorie Greenspan, $40
The homey cover—chicken in the pot—invited me in, and the book’s convivial author got me to stay. Each recipe starts with a story. No, a conversation. It’s as though Greenspan is in your kitchen chatting about some French chef who uses Coca-Cola to baste ribs, showing you how to “rap” the bubbles out of your crème brûlée, and cheering you on when you change up the couscous salad. It’s a gorgeous, friendly addition to my library.
