Mimi Thorisson was a model who lived in Paris with her husband, then decided to move to the French countryside buying a nineteenth-century home in Medoc. Later her family grew to nine children and 15 dogs. She first came onto the scene with her food blog, Manger, where she talks about her life and the recipes she cooks at her home. From the success of her blog she went on to write two cookbooks, this being her second one. Some of my favorite recipes from the book are old-fashioned orange cake, onion Plantia's (which is a onion soup), walnut cake and potato & chard galette. This book is beautiful with amazing pictures taken by her husband. It will make you want to move to France.
A lavishly photographed cookbook by the host of La Table de Mimi and author of A Kitchen in France features 100 simple, French wine-country artisan recipes inspired by her family's move to a massive old stone building that once housed a restaurant and inn.
