My Very First Cookbook, Newly Released in French!

Do you read French? Are you a student of the language? If so, I have an important update for you!

I have just released Chocolate & Zucchini : Le Livre, a new e-book edition of my very first cookbook, translated into French by yours truly.

The French edition was first published by Hachette, but it’s been out of print for a while. That always made my heart sink: it’s a book into which I’ve poured all of my soul, and many of my cult recipes, the kind you make again and again, and pass on to your sister and your friends, who later tell you, “You know, that mustard chicken of yours? I make it ALL THE TIME!”

This is why I decided to bring it back to life as an e-book — after a thorough re-reading and re-formatting effort — and I am now offering it for 8€ ($9), for immediate download on Amazon or the secure platform e-junkie.

I want it!

Don’t read French? Get the original English-language edition of the book, complete with my soul and cult recipes! It’s called Chocolate & Zucchini: Daily Adventures in a Parisian Kitchen.

Chocolate & Zucchini : Le Livre

What people have said about the book

The Chocolate & Zucchini cookbook provides a glimpse into the life of a young Parisian as she savors all that the city has to offer and shares her cooking philosophy in the form of more than 75 recipes that are, as the LA Times called them, “simple, charming, and fun.”

“Dusoulier is the Parisian friend we all wish we had. [Her] voice is boisterous, spirited, delightful and entirely forgiving.” — New York Times Magazine

“Dusoulier’s zesty approach to shopping for, cooking, and presenting French food is entirely appealing. Her recipes are inventive rather than eccentric, and her enthusiasm for the pleasures of the table is infectious.” — Gourmet Magazine

“Clotilde Dusoulier brings an engaging new voice to home cuisine.” — Vogue

The French edition was nominated for Best Translation in the Gourmand World Cookbook Awards.

Recipes include:

  • Pan Bagnat Sandwich
  • Onion and Cumin Quiche
  • Gratinéed Chicken Soup with Pink Peppercorns
  • Walnut, Pear, and Roquefort Madeleines
  • Mustard Chicken Stew
  • Hand-Cut Steak Tartare
  • Roasted Ratatouille
  • Chocolate Raspberry Cake

  • I already started wanting to read your book, it must be awesome. And many thanks, the RSS feed is working on my browser now :)

    • Thank you Yukiko! It’s really weird because I actually didn’t do anything about it. Ha ha! I really need to look into it. :)

      • It is getting weirder and weirder… as the feed isn’t working anymore..? It’s odd…

        • Annabel Smyth

          Mine hasn’t worked for months now – I assumed Clothilde, or her web-master, had turned it off for some reason that seemed good to them.

          • Oh really? Its odd, right? One time the feed was working and then not. And if you try to just view the URL, the last post there is from Oct 2015.(but I’m happy to hear I’m not the only one facing difficulties).

          • No we didn’t! And I am dumbfounded as to what may be happening — sometimes it works (it is up to date now), sometimes it doesn’t. I need to investigate, but can never reproduce the issue when I decide to!
