Let's Cook French: A family cookbook

Okay, so this is the post where you start to imagine that holiday stress or perhaps turkey poisoning has started to addle my brain.

You see, I'm sure I wrote this book review ... months ago. 

I even remember some of what I said. How Jacques Pepin did the illustrations for this book, Let's Cook French, that was written by his daughter, Claudine Pepin.

How the recipes are in English on the left-hand side of the book and in French on the right-hand side, so you and your kids can learn a little French while you're making Cauliflower Soufflé (Soufflé au chou-fleur) or Poulet à la crème (Chicken with cream sauce).

I looked through this blog and my recipe blog, and it's nowhere to be found. No review, no photo, no recipe, no nothing.

When the review disappeared, you also didn't get a chance to know that while the book is aimed at getting kids into the kitchen to cook, it's not childish. Sure, there's a recipe for melted cheese - okay, it's actually a cheese fondue - but there's also a recipe for spinach. And lamb chops. And creme brulee.

I'm not saying kids would dislike any of those recipes, but this is not a book about 101 ways to eat chicken nuggets. It's real food. Which I whole-heartedly endorse.

So, now you know what you missed. Me, I'm just looking for my mind. It's got to be around here somewhere.

I got this book from the publisher at no cost to me.
