Notes about Recipes in this book

  • Earl Grey madeleines (Madeleines au thé Earl Grey)

    • chawkins on April 28, 2018

      This worked out better than Doris Greenspan’s recipe, as the tea leaves were incorporated into the batter rather than just steeping them in the butter and straining them out. I scaled the recipe down to a third and that even worked, got a nice bump on them. It only took 12 minutes to bake in my very dark non-stick pan. Did not make the orange glaze.

  • Smoked mackerel tartine with beet relish (Tartine de maquereau fumé au relish de betterave)

    • Rinshin on September 11, 2018

      Good use of canned mackerel. Used skinless mackerel which made it easy to prepare. Did not make the beet pickle and used a dill pickle. Photo added.

    • Boffcat on August 15, 2018

      I made just the mackerel (which I served with the grated carrot salad and oven-puffed pancake from the same book) - it was quick, straightforward and tasty.

  • Grated carrots from the charcuterie (Carottes râpées du charcutier)

    • Boffcat on August 15, 2018

      I thought that the basic recipe might be too plain, but was pleasantly surprised. My only adjustment to the core recipe was using 1tbsp of coconut oil and 2tbsp rapeseed oil in place of the specified "3tbsps neutral oil" (as it was the closest I could come with what I had to hand), and it made for a compulsively moreish dressing. I also replaced some of the carrot with grated apple, as suggested in one of the recipe variations, but the apple wasn't really discernible so I wouldn't bother again.

  • Tuna escabeche (Escabèche de thon)

    • Boffcat on July 04, 2021

      This is one of my most regularly made dishes in the warmer months. I use herring or mackerel rather than tuna, and will often adjust the vegetables and herbs slightly depending on what I have. (I cut the oil back a bit too.) Delicious every time.

  • Oven-puffed pancake (Pascade)

    • Boffcat on August 15, 2018

      Simple and satisfying - the batter makes for a pleasingly rich pancake, and it puffed up impressively. 2/3 of the recipe would be about right for my 8" pan.

  • Roast chicken with herbed butter and croutons (Poulet rôti au beurre d'herbes et croûtons)

    • Indio32 on November 19, 2018

      Was in Paris a few days ago so picked up some stuff inc. chicken from Marché d'Aligre. Thought I really should only be using a French recipe.....chose this one. Very happy with the result. Crispy skin, moist flesh and oooodles of flavour. I’m sure the quality of the dish reflected the quality of the chicken which was €22/$25. Might try it again with a more standard chicken i.e €15/$17 to see how it turns out.

  • Lentil soup with sausage and fennel (Soupe de lentilles saucisse et fenouil)

    • Cathyschuh on January 05, 2020

      Using a spicy sausage helps round out the soup, gives it a heartiness without a lot of meat.

Reviews about this book

  • Stonesoup

    I’ve...been inspired by my lovely friend Clotildes relatively simple approach to great food.I equally enjoyed the armchair travel aspect of seeing the Parisian food scene through the eyes of a local.

    Until I get to Paris I’ll just adore Clotilde’s cookbooks. She also wrote The French Market Cookbook which holds a place in my heart and on my shelf.
