Best Books for Francophiles

So you’ve had a look at my best gifts for French-loving cooks and got some nice ideas from that. But what if a book is the kind of gift you’re after? Here’s a selection of ten books that will delight the francophile on your list, books that transport the reader straight to Paris and around France, in exploration and celebration of French culture.

There’s going to be relatable stories, colorful characters, insightful comments, i-want-to-steal-this prose, laugh-out-loud moments, and of course, excellent food. Are you ready for this?

This is one in a series of themed gift guides I am publishing this week; here’s the complete list of my best gift guides.

The French Market Cookbook at $1.99!

My most recent cookbook, The French Market Cookbook, is currently on sale in its digital version at the incredible price of $1.99 until October 30! (North American readers only; see note below.)

The French Market Cookbook is a recipe book that celebrates the love story between French cuisine and vegetables, and the many colorful and ingenious ways we cook with the seasons in France.

I have poured my heart, soul, and favorite recipes into it, and have done extensive research to bring to you little-known regional market-driven dishes, such as the poor man’s bouillabaisse, the winter squash bastelles from Corsica, and the pascadous, which will become your new favorite way to cook assorted greens.

The book first came out a couple of years ago, and I have been immensely gratified by the feedback I continue to receive daily from readers, on social media and offline.

All the recipes are vegetarian, many of them are vegan or veganizable, and I have also prepared an index of recipes containing possible allergens so you can assess if the book is for you; just email me and I will send this index (a spreadsheet of recipe names and associated allergens) to you at no cost.

So if you’re ready to enrich your digital library of cookbooks with a title that has no equivalent — French vegetarian is an underserved niche! — you will find The French Market Cookbook wherever e-books are sold to North American readers, such as the following platforms (remember the sale ends on October 30!):

Note: This promotion is limited to US- and Canada-based readers as my publisher is American. I’d prefer to make it accessible to my international readers as well, but publication rights have strict limitations and it’s not up to me unfortunately. As someone who lives outside the US, I know it’s frustrating. I think the book is a great value at the regular listed price, too, but I may be biased. ;)

And while I’m at it, I wanted to share two other time-sensitive deals, accessible to all!

Well Fed Weeknights: A Giveaway!

{Scroll down to enter to win Well Fed Weeknights.}

There is no one-size-fits-all in nutrition. It isn’t a popular thing to say because we all prefer quick fixes and overnight transformations. But the truth is, health is highly individual, and self-experimentation and self-discovery are the only pursuits that will get you anywhere.

I myself have an inclination toward vegetarianism; I turn to plant-based foods by default. However, when I have leaned too far in that direction, I have noticed I don’t do well relying so heavily on grains and legumes. And when I dabbled at a paleo style of eating* I realized that it may, in fact, be closer to what my system needs to thrive. (This explains all the paleo-friendly recipes in my archives.)

I am, however, an omnivore by taste and by trade, and I strive to find a happy middle ground between what my brain tells me I want to eat, what my body tells me I need to eat, and what the world tells me is available to eat. Day by day, meal by meal, I follow my appetite and try to stay in tune with how I feel.

But the common theme woven throughout is my insistence on real food, and no one is more on board with that than Melissa Joulwan, whose paleo blog is based on that very premise.
