Marie's New Book!~


For 100 years I have been touting many of Marie's recipes..






At long last.. after completing chef's school..and being a personal chef for years..  blogging..winning awards..she has her first cookbook published!

The English Kitchen: An Anglophone's Love Note To The English Kitchen~


It is available at Amazon United States..
Amazon Canada
Amazon UK

This is a wonderful ..big cookbook with so many tried and true recipes..I have already bookmarked many many recipes..
It's about 700 pages..  and walks you through breakfasts..mains..desserts..Menus..tips and tricks..essentials..methods..

A treasure trove ..of years of experience.

This would make a great gift..for anyone..

I call it The Art Of Mastering English Cooking:)

Because it's not all fluff w/ maybe a few  good recipes..you can learn the basics here and have a repertoire..that you build on..w/ all her sauces..potato dishes..puddings etc..

The kid knows what she's doing:)

If you have been following me for any amount of time..you will have seen things I have made from Marie's recipes..

TONS:)

And some have been remade soo many times!
Many recipes I make once..but even if they are really good..I move on..
but some recipes you make again and again and again..

some of mine are from Marie.That's saying A lot:)

Her custard creams are in the book:)
So cute so good!






Her Omelet:)



Her Chocolate Bourbons~




Not only sweets in this book..everything..she has everything covered!

This is a totally unbiased review..well.. perhaps biased because I have so many tried and trues of Marie's recipes..I AM quite frankly biased♥

Above..small small samplings of what I have made.
...her Korean Beef..my daughters even make now.


..her sponge cake:)



Some days just making one of her recipes got me going..giving me incentive to try and learn..and make and bake.


W/all the printed out sheets I have of her recipes..it's nice to have many more..all in one.
Marie ,thanks for everything you have shared..share and contine to share.

I am sure your book will do so well.

Congratulations.



You nailed it.

  1. Gosh Monique. I haven't even heard of her. I didn't realize she was your cooking muse. What gorgeous pictures. I saw a place for all new cookbooks at Barnes and Noble. I'll have to look for it. My daughter still loves to bake and would love that book.

    1. I think she would! It covers everything..I met Marie.."met" when I first started blogging I think..i's been so long!
      And it just seemed every recipe I tried..well it worked lol..

      she has been looking forward having her work published:) A long hard journey.
      So it's pretty amazing for me to say.."I knew her when"!
      The book covers A LOT..
      I know Amazon has it..I know you love Barnes and Noble..such a great store..like our Chapters/Indigo..hope thsoe stores survive for many many years to come..seems like online is more and more prevalent..

    2. It is shocking how many stores are closing. Restaurants too. Hope it doesn't continue that trend. It is worrying.

  4. Monique, what can I say, you have done me so proud and I am so humbled by what you have written about my book. I thank you from the bottom of my heart. I did put my heart and soul into this. It has been a real labor of love as you know. I am almost speechless at what you have written. I am in tears here. You have been so kind and so gracious, but I am not surprised, because you always are. You are a dear, dear friend. Love you to bits. Yes, we have "known" each other for a long time now I think. God willing one day we will actually get to meet in person, oh, on Martha's Vineyard, wouldn't that be great? A dream come true. Thank you so very, very much. Off to get Todd to read this now. You have made me feel like a winner!!! xoxo
