The kind people at The Book Club Cookbook asked me to create a menu inspired by The Paris Deception, and being an unrepentant foodie I was only too happy to oblige!
"In The Paris Deception, Fabienne happens upon her parents, Annette and Maurice, sharing a quiet moment in the kitchen, and to me those moments are the ones that make a meal: spending time with loved ones, and sharing those culinary duties – chopping and kneading, table-setting and doing the dishes. We remember the stand-out menus, of course, but it’s those moments with friends and family that truly make a dinner – any dinner – special."
Check out the article in the link below for my thoughts on food rationing in occupied France, the importance of meals with loved ones, and a dinner party menu which includes:
My own Chateau Dolus inspired creation, Coq au Champagne
The classic Parisian jambon-beurre sandwich
A stunning charcuterie board
The perfect, luxurious French chocolat chaud
A delightfully brisk and bubbly French 75 cocktail
