Tastes of France

Three recipes – an open-face sandwich, carrot soup, and chocolate custard – from new cookbook La Tartine Gourmande.

In November 2005, I started a food blog that I called La Tartine Gourmande: tartine (an open-faced sandwich commonly eaten in France), because I prepare and eat them so frequently, and gourmande (someone who enjoys food), because it defines me so well. And now, it is a cookbook. Whenever I walk into my kitchen, I am inspired to try new things and prepare more beautiful, healthy foods. I want my friends and family to taste and build memories around these foods, too. La Tartine Gourmande: Recipes for an Inspired Life is all about that. It’s a warm invitation for you to share in it, too.
