This is a book as much about the growing of food as the cooking of it. It is about the French countryside, delicious straight forward food and Amanda Hesser’s amusing relationship with the gardener, Monsieur Milbert. She must travel a long journey to persuade him to trust his beloved produce to the hands of a young cook from a foreign land.
A book I so enjoy, written by American Amanda Hesser recounting her time working for the legendary Anne Willan at her La Varenne cookery school in France. It’s my go-to for ideas and recipes on all things French and vegetable.
