We are engaging in a new cookbook project!
(Insert fist-pumping and Carlton dances.)
The Dorista alumni and dozens other bloggers have jumped in the band wagon to cook their way through David Lebovitz’s My Paris Kitchen through Cook the Book Fridays. My Paris Kitchen is filled with Americain en París stories, ingredient intelligence, and most importantly, delicious and totally do-able recipes to bring French Flavors (back) home. My Paris Kitchen for Kindle and Kindle reading apps is currently available at Amazon.com for a mere $1.99 for a limited time only. How could I resist? And hey, if you don’t already have a copy… how could you?
Cook the Book… on Social Platforms
At this time, my posts for Cook the Book Fridays will be available through the Great Food 360˚ Instagram and Facebook pages. I’m definitely not writing off blog posts! When some of the recipes pose a challenge and require culinary creativity/ingenuity/chutzpah, I’ll share those workarounds with more detail.
While we have a bit of catching up to do – nothing insurmountable – we started with last week’s recipe for the Artichoke Tapenade.
Rekindling our love affair for home made French cuisine! We topped some of @levainartisanbreads five-grain sourdough bread with artichoke tapenade adapted from @davidlebovitz's My Paris Kitchen. Did you know that what makes a tapenade "a tapenade", the briny olive spread is not olives but rather capers? This spread includes capers, green olives, garlic, and a smidgen of rosemary. We are excited to join our Francophile friends in cooking through this beautiful book in the coming weeks! #cookthebookfridays #mypariskitchen #artichokes #vegetarian #spreads #partyfood #cookingsocial #levainartisanbreads #mercadoagricolanatural
These are the recipes we need to complete in order to be fully caught up with the Cook The Book Fridays crowd:
- Belgian Beef Stew with Beer and Spice Bread
- Dukkah Roasted Cauliflower
- Steak with Mustard Butter and Fries
- Winter Salad
Next up in the roster is fried ham and cheese sandwiches… le croque monsieur! Bon appetit, and remember to check your Instagram or Facebook feeds every other Friday.
Cook the Book Fridays is an online group of home cooks working their way through David Lebovitz’s My Paris Kitchen. We respect M. Lebovitz’s wishes and don’t post the recipes – that said, if the recipe is available elsewhere, we’ll link it up. Here is the recipe for the Artichoke Tapenade, as published in the Washington Post.
