I originally wanted to test out a dessert experiement for my mom today, since she’s the big chef of the family. She ended up asking me to cook a full dinner. I ended up preparing a three course meal. It was very last minute. I planned the meal Saturday night after Katelyn’s second birthday. The dish I first wanted to try out was for honey almond bites. For the appetizer, I made roasted ratatouille. I rounded off the dinner with asparagus and sea bass papillotes. Both were incredible. A few weeks ago, I was walking around the bookstore checking out the culinary section. There was one book that caught my eye. The cover design was what drew me in. The book I’m referring to is
Chocolate & Zucchini: Daily Adventures in a Parisian Kitchen by Clotilde Dusoulier. After flipping through the book and seeing all the beautiful photos of the food, I decided to pick it up. Now that I have successfully cooked three dishes from this book, I can definitively say two things. One, Clotilde Dusoulier knows exactly what she is doing. Her recipes is more than just about taste, which is excellent, but all the senses good food should please. The second thing is that I cannot wait to try another recipe from this book. Go buy this book now.
