DO YOU WANT TO TEST RECIPES FOR MY BOOK?

DO YOU WANT TO TEST RECIPES FOR MY BOOK?

If you’d like to test recipes for the book I am writing Le Kitchen Cookbook.
Here are links to some of the recipes.

Please don’t let the length of the recipes intimidate you. They may seem long, but that is only to ensure that everything is explained.

Egg, Bacon and Hash-brown Frittata—a one-pan breakfast

Oven-Roasted Tomatoes

Cauliflower Fennel Parmesan Soup

Soupe aux Poireaux pomme de terre—Leek and potato soup 

Roast Pork Tenderloin with 3 Sauces

Chicken Stew

Creme Caramel 

Roasted Potatoes and Carrots 

Poulet a la Basque 

Meatloaf 

Here is a little reminder if you are testing a recipe:

Could you let me know:

  1. Was it understandable?
  2. Did I omit something?
  3. Was it easy to follow?
  4. Did the recipe turn out?
  5. Is there anything you’d change?
  6. Did you like it?
  7. Would you make it again?

Again don’t let the length of the recipes scare you off. They only seem long, but that is only to ensure that everything is explained.

Before you start cooking, there are two steps you should take. I highly recommend that you:

  1. Read the entire recipe before starting. Trust me, it makes cooking so much easier—I learned this the hard way.

I can’t tell you how many times I’ve gotten halfway through a recipe to read “let it marinate overnight.” What! I’m making this for tonight, not tomorrow! And I’m left improvising the rest of the recipe.

  1. Do what chef’s do before they start cooking. Get everything ready: all your utensils, tools, and ingredients measured, peeled, cut, and sliced. It is called mise en place, a French term meaning set in place. This step has actually made cooking easier.

Once all the ingredients are prepared and ready, I can start cooking without having to pause to prepare the next ingredients. And I don’t forget to include something because it is already waiting for me to include it.

You can answer the questions either in the comments or if you prefer you can email me at adeline@french-secrets.com.


One more thing: if you know anyone who you think would like to test a recipe, please send this on to them. The more the merrier.

Merci!

These 7 steps will not only make you a better cook, but they will help reduce stress. When I discovered that cooking didn’t have to be overwhelming, I started to enjoy the process and the food I made improved. The better the food got, the more I cooked. Practice makes perfect; well maybe not perfect, but you will taste . . .

WE CAN'T FORGET

Today is September 11th and I couldn’t let it go by. There is so much to remember, so many people who lost their lives and so many who did all they could to help. And so many of those helpers, those angels, are still losing their lives for their efforts. I don’t want to forget or pretend that nineteen years is a . . .

LE KITCHEN COOKBOOK—THE COUNTDOWN IS ON

Why did I write a cookbook? When I was learning to cook, I looked for a book that would explain procedures in a way that would teach me to do more than just follow a recipe. I wanted to understand basic techniques and what made some dishes exceptionally good and others not so much. There were plenty of cookbooks that...
