How to Cook Bouillabaisse in 37 Easy Steps
Culinary Adventures in Paris and Provence

The Culinary Secrets of France

"Food, Wine, France, Travel." For twenty years those four words have fuelled our passion for the country and its cuisine. We've had some amazing culinary adventures and we wrote about the best of them in our book, How to Cook Bouillabaisse in 37 Easy Steps. We were thrilled and honored when the book took top place among North American books at the Gourmand World Cookbook Awards held at the historic Foilies Bergère theatre in Paris.

Join us as we learn how to make macarons at a cooking school in Paris, cook duck magret at Le Cordon Bleu, hunt for truffles in Provence with a truffle dog as our guide, and taste our way through the 56 AOC French cheeses. How to Cook Bouillabaisse in 37 Easy Steps is about our adventures living and traveling in France — the friends we've made, the wineries we've discovered, the kitchens we've cooked in.
