The Little Paris Kitchen

Rachel Khoo was determined to get to grips with French cooking, so to learn more she moved to Paris, not speaking a word of French, and enrolled at Le Cordon Bleu, the world-famous cookery school. Six years later, she still lives and works in Paris, cooking up a selection of classic French dishes from all over the country and giving them a fresh makeover with her own modern twists. From a Croque Madame muffin and the classic Boeuf bourguignon, to a deliciously fragrant Provencal lavender and lemon roast chicken, Rachel celebrates the culinary landscape of France as it is today and shows how simple these dishes are.

Rachel visits one of Paris’s finest street markets and encounters Joel Thiebault, the French ‘king of vegetables’. Joel sells to the world’s top chefs and today Rachel is looking for succulent beetroot for her superb Puy lentil, beetroot and goat’s cheese salad. Rachel serves the lightest of desserts – îles flottantes – where delicately poached meringues drift on the creamiest vanilla custard. She samples exquisite Normandy oysters at a stall offering five succulent varieties, then prepares gourmet garnishes with a Parisian chef. Featured recipes: – Salade de lentilles du Puy – Puy lentil salad – Bouillon de poulet – chicken dumpling soup – Les huîtres – oysters – Îles flottantes – floating islands
