Description
"A sumptuous French cookbook that immerses readers in the delectable countryside cuisine of the Périgord region, by the author of the beloved Bruno series and his wife, Julia Watson. Bruno Courrèges, the protagonist of Martin Walker's internationally acclaimed mystery series, is not only the local police chief of the idyllic French village of St. Denis. Bruno also happens to be an impassioned amateur chef, and in this delightful new cookbook, the culinary and cultural inspiration behind Bruno's fictional world comes to life. Featuring local recipes, charming anecdotes, and a history of its French setting, Bruno's Cookbook invites readers into the bucolic life of Walker and his wife, Julia, and showcases their passion for the region's rich cuisine. Brimming with truffles, pâté, famed cheesemakers, and prized cows, the Périgord region is a gourmand's paradise. Bruno's Cookbook includes over 90 recipes, steeped in local flavors and prepared in the Walkers' cheerful country kitchen, from Duck Breast Fillets with Honey and Mustard, Red Onion Tarte Tatin, and a Classic Beef Pot Roast, to Chard Gratin (Bruno's comfort meal), Confit Potato Fries Sarlat-Style ("the Emperor Napoleon of french fries"), Hazelnut Meringue Cake, and Homemade Blackcurrant Liqueur. Centered around the splendid institution of the village market, the recipes are organized around the people who provide the food: the fisherman, the hunter, the cheesemaker, the forager, the baker, and the winemaker. A feast for the senses, Bruno's Cookbook transports readers to France's heartland. Bonus: the book also includes a new Bruno story"--Provided by publisher.
