About this product
- DescriptionA narratively rich cookbook of French and Californian recipes from longtime Chez Panisse executive chef Jean-Pierre Moulle and his wife, Denise Moulle. Jean-Pierre and Denise Moulle met on a street corner in Berkeley, California, in 1980; six months later they were married. French Roots is the story of their lives told through the food they cook beginning with the dishes of old-world France, the couple s birthplace, and focusing on the simple, pared-down preparations of French food common in the postwar period. The story then travels to the San Francisco Bay Area in the 1970s, where Jean-Pierre was appointed executive chef at Chez Panisse when California cuisine was just emerging as a distinctive and important style, and where Denise began importing French wine. Finally, the journey follows the couple to their homes in Soma, California, and Bordeaux to revisit the classic dishes of the Moulles native country and hone the forgotten skills of foraging, hunting, and preserving. Exquisitely written, with recipes that are invative and timeless, insights on cooking and thinking like a chef, and an insider s guide to the wines of Bordeaux, French Roots is much more than a cookbook it s a guide to living the good life.
