Lunch in Paris is a tantalising daytrip through the City of Light, that works out to be a fair bit cheaper than a return flight to France.

Each chapter of this chic cookbook focusses on one of Paris’ arrondissements and is studded with dreamy location photography. Stroll through the lush Place de Vosges, and along the golden water of Île Saint-Louis – all before roaming the fresh and fragrant markets of the 11th arrondissement. With 50 simple and classic examples of French cuisine, this book proves that you need not go to Le Cordon Bleu culinary school to perfect a Pork and Pistachio Terrine. Or Caramelised Onion and Goat’s Cheese Tartlets. Or an Olive and Anchovy Pissaladière. Or a Comté and Asparagus Tart (among many more).

With poetic and loving descriptions of each arrondissement, Lunch in Paris lets you bring the flavours of France to your very own kitchen. Trust us: your family and friends will love you all the more for it. Bon appétit!
