Trish Deseine is renowned for her unpretentious approach to food, creating delicious and easy-to-prepare recipes that are always inspired and refined. Here, Trish presents more than eighty original recipes that incorporate simple, quality ingredients, often in novel combinations: from caramelized maple-butternut risotto with spicy grilled pecans to match a green tea panna cotta with dark chocolate sauce. Inspired by the fine ingredients at La Grande Épicerie de Paris-the famous gourmet food shop in the upscale Bon Marché department store-she shares her twist on both traditional French classics and dishes with a distinctly British flavor: from smoked magret of duck to pear tarte tatin, and from Welsh rarebit to Guinness cake. Designed with the home chef’s tight schedule in mind, the recipes-divided into appetizers, soups, and salads; main courses and side dishes; and desserts-are quick and easy to prepare. Each recipe is accompanied by tips and a suggested drink pairing. Modern yet informal, these recipes show how simple cuisine using exceptional products can yield delectable results, to delight gourmets everywhere.
