Charming, fun, and good food, too

  • May 2, 2008
"Chocolate & Zucchini" is an entertaining combination of Clotilde Dusoulier's thoughts on food, cooking, and the Parisian lifestyle, and recipes chosen to reflect that lifestyle in a way American audiences can recreate. For my own tastes (so to speak), I could have done with more discussion and fewer recipes, but I certainly cannot complain. For one thing, it sounds like her forthcoming second book is more along those lines. And for another, these recipes are quite good -- I made the Biscuits Très Chocolate (p. 229) for a friend's birthday present, and they were very well received.

The author is a charming, and dare I say "sweet," guide, with a command of English that transcends mere fluency to being distinctive and very personal. One of the reasons I wished there was more personal narrative was because I liked that voice. Good thing we have her blog -- and, as I said, her next book. I'm looking forward to getting into that as soon as I can. Perhaps with a plate of biscuits très chocolate.
