Edible French is my newest book, based on my popular series of colorful French idioms.
It explores fifty of the most evocative French expressions related to food with cultural notes, recipes, and whimsical watercolors by my talented friend Mélina Josserand.
This is a project that has been brewing in my mind for years and years, and as a lover of both food and language, I am thrilled to be able to share it with you now.
I am also incredibly pleased with how the physical object turned out; the production team has done an wonderful job of it. It’s a book that feels very loveable, and the quality of the paper — thick, matte, with a bit of texture — really brings out the beauty of Melina’s watercolors, almost as if they were originals.
I can tell that the people I show it to don’t really want to let go once they have it in their hands, and I hope you feel that way too.
