Book Information

The following content was provided by the publisher.
The Chamberlain family spent a dozen blissful years in pre-World War II France, with their beloved cook Clementine, learning the gustatory pleasures of snail hunting and bottling their own wine. When war rumblings sent them scurrying stateside, Clementine refused to be left behind -- and made a new, very French home for herself in Marblehead, Massachusetts. Like the Chamberlains, readers will find it impossible to resist her winning ways -- or the delightful recipes sprinkled throughout the engaging story that showcase the best of elegant and simple French country cooking.

Reviews

Review by Library Journal (2001-05-15)

This is the first volume in the Modern Library's new "Food" series. More than simply cookbooks, the volumes offer some cultural information and illustrations along with the recipes. Other books in the line are Edouard de Pomaine's Cooking with Pomaine (ISBN 0-375-75713-9), Henri Charpentier's Life? la Henri (ISBN 0-375-75692-2), and Laura Shapiro's Perfection Salad (ISBN 0-375-75665-5).

Book description

The Chamberlain family spent a dozen blissful years in pre World War II France, with their beloved cook, Clementine, learning the gustatory pleasures of snail hunting in their backyard and bottling their own wine. When war rumblings sent them scurrying Stateside, Clementine refused to be left behind and made a new home for herself in Marblehead, Massachusetts, where she introduced the initially suspicious Yankees to the pleasures of la cuisine de bonne femme. First published in 1943, Clementine in the Kitchen is a charming portrait of a family of gastronomic adventurers, and a mouth-watering collection of more than 170 traditional French recipes. This Modern Library Food series edition includes a new Introduction by Jeffrey Steingarten, food critic for Vogue and author of The Man Who Ate Everything, winner of the Julia Child Book Award.
