Do you read French? Are you a student of the language? If so, this one’s for you!
Chocolate & Zucchini : Le Livre is the e-book edition of my very first cookbook, translated into French by yours truly.
The French edition was first published by Hachette, but it had 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.

What the press has 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.
