Paris Gourmand Awards!
How to Cook Bouillabaisse 37 Easy Steps: Culinary Adventure in Paris & Provence has received positive reviews from The Calgary Herald who said about the book, "If you're crazy about all things French, you'll enjoy this book, which not only focuses on food, but is also peppered with anecdotes and making friends in France… A great resource in you're planning to visit Paris."
And the number #1 ranked website about Provence food and wine said, "The whole book is so rich that there is a strong temptation to treat it like an unputdownable box of chocs…"
"Our book goes behind the scenes," said Diane Shaskin, the book's co-author. "We meet a Parisian baker; take a private cooking class at the Ritz hotel; visit a 100-year-old caviar house, where we have a champagne and caviar pairing; taste our way around the 56 French AOC cheeses; and visit the oldest chocolatier in Paris.
"My goal was to capture the gourmet spirit of Paris and Provence: the café life, the small épiceries, and the culinary traditions that make France synonymous with la belle vie, the good life," said Diane.
"What I've learned is that the French are still very passionate about their food, how it is made, the traditions and the quality."
The Gourmand World Cookbook Awards were established in 1995 and today are recognized as one of the most important culinary awards in the world.
How to Cook Bouillabaisse 37 Easy Steps: Culinary Adventure in Paris & Provence is available at Paris Insiders Guide, Amazon, and bookstores.
