Nobody Does It Better: Why French Home Cooking is Still the Best in the World by Trish Deseine
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


We may hate to admit it (and never would to the French), but the truth is that there is still nowhere in the world where food and cooking are so passionately and intricately woven into lives, hearts and minds than in France, a country where masterpieces of home cooking are produced nightly, whether for a family supper or chic dinner party. So how does that archetypal Frenchwoman do it? And how can we take a feuille out of her livre? This book tells you exactly how. With chapter titles such as 'Shops Wisely', 'Knows her classics', 'Steals from chefs' and 'Rises to the Occasion', this book will both delight and inform. Trish will teach you all you need to master French cuisine, from the classic dinner party recipes to the latest trends as well as how to tackle difficult ingredients such as truffles and lobster. An affectionate yet unsentimental, irreverent but non-patronising guide from one of France's top cookbook authors, "Nobody Does It Better" is set to steal a place on your kitchen shelf.

Author Biography

Living and working in France for 20 years, Trish Deseine has freely developed her passion for cooking. Being neither a trained chef nor a home economist, Trish's approach is far from a French chef's Cartesian obsession with doing things the right way. Her recipes are pragmatic and forgiving and she shows the reader how to present food in the most simple, beautiful and impressive ways. Trish is the author of several books, which have won many awards including the French Gourmand Cookbook Award in 2002, and are all published across Europe and the US. She has also been profiled in French Elle and Vogue. Trish is now a regular contributor to French food pages. A 'best of' chocolate and her fifth book on cooking for children have just been published by Hachette Marabout.
