I’m very happy to announce the release of…
Le Goûter: Afternoon Snacking the French Way!
Eating between meals is discouraged in France, yet there is one snack which is never passed up, a beloved tradition known as ‘le goûter‘ (also called ‘le quatre-heures‘ or ‘la pause gourmande‘) and an integral part of French culture. The beauty of le goûter (the word means ‘to taste’) is that it encourages children (and adults!) to take a break and relish something special. In a way, it even helps create a healthy relationship toward food, which may seem paradoxical because le goûter is not really meant to be nutritious. It’s meant to be decadent!
Le Goûter: Afternoon Snacking the French Way, features my favorite baked goods and sweet indulgences. Not all are traditionally French, but they are guaranteed to make your afternoons extra special. You’ll love making and serving these delicious treats that are easy and don’t shy away from calling for sugar, butter or cream. Some recipes include tips on how to get children to help in the kitchen as well as interesting food history tidbits to share at the table. The book is not only meant for parents of young children, but will appeal to anyone who enjoys classic French treats and tasty desserts. So whether you’re in the mood to whip up shiny fruit tarts, bake a batch of round-bellied madeleines or indulge in a slice of homemade cake, this book has all the inspiration you need to indulge… and raise little connaisseurs! Life is about to get a whole lot sweeter: C’est bientôt l’heure du goûter!
