Posts Tagged ‘Bouchon’

Hi All,

How is everyone doing?  We are doing well here.

So one of my assignments here was to create a BlogRoll that lists the blogs that I like to follow – that’s quite a list by the way because there are some great blogs and websites out there.  I will try to do that later today.  This one is more techie, and I seem to be having a blocked moment with techie stuff.  Maybe because it’s just too nice out lately :).

Another assignment was to make a blogging prompt that I had read in someone else’s blog personal.  In other words how reading someone else’s blog post hit me personally.

So I decided to use a post I read the other day on one of my favorite food bloggers – We Are Not Martha.  They are a Web site that I try to check in on at least once a week because they always have great recipes, great drink ideas, 🙂 great craft ideas and a lot of cute stories.  Recently, they did a blog post featuring a recipe from Thomas Keller’s Bouchon cookbook.  The recipe was for Croque Madame and of course it looked delicious (all “WeAreNotMartha” recipes look delicious) but the way that the author talked about this cookbook hit me, and I immediately had to Google it.  I found it on Amazon along with another one of his cookbooks – Bouchon Bakery, and I of course immediately purchased them.

At first I thought I had never heard of this guy before but then when I saw that he was the owner of the French Laundry restaurant, I realized that not only had I heard of him.  I think I already have his French Laundry cookbook…  That’s scary when you can’t recall all of your cookbooks…

I have the same problem with quilting books too by the way :).

Anyways, both of these cookbooks are beautiful!!  Beautifully written and have beautiful pictures.  They look more like coffee table books, and I can’t wait to try some of these recipes.  One of the reviewers for Bouchon Bakery said the cookie on the front cover was the best cookie she’s ever had in her life.  You can’t ignore comments like that – at least I can’t anyways.  He also has a recipe for his version of Ho Ho’s.

Here are some photos of the books and some of the pictures inside.  I apologize for my bad photography.  While the pictures inside his book are beyond beautifully done, my iPhone photos of his photos might be less than perfect.

Like I said – really beautiful cookbooks.  I am looking forward to trying a few of his recipes (especially those “Oh Ohs” which are his version of Ho Ho’s), and will let you know how they come out.

Have a great day and Lots of Love!!
