Book Review: Fresh From the Market by Laurent Tourondel
I borrowed this book from the library. It's a gorgeous book with lovely photos. The book is divided into seasons. I like that. Make things easier if you have access to seasonal foods.
Each season starts with cocktails, which I have only seen in Sandra Lee cookbooks. The seasons go through the usual courses and ends with a couple of menus.
The recipes look really good but I wouldn't be able to afford (or find) a lot of these ingredients he uses. Wines and cheeses that I have never heard of. Obscure mushrooms, whole suckling pigs, veal cheeks and hares....
Perhaps if I lived on Long Island or in NYC this would be a great book for me.
