What Others are Saying about The Bonne Femme Cookbook

Love the Nov. 2011 issue of Wine Enthusiast Magazine. Not just because my book is reviewed, but also for the list of "Top 100 Best Buys of 2011."

Bonjour. The Bonne Femme Cookbook reached shelves nearly a month ago, and I’ve received some nice press. Here are some of my favorite recent mentions:

1. The Wine Enthusiast Magazine, November, 2011. For the holiday cooking and wine book guide, both in-print and online, book reviewer Andrew Hoover wrote:

For those who struggle to find enough time to craft an inspired dinnertime meal without slaving for hours, this simple and delicious approach to French home cooking allows even the busiest people to taste joie de vivre.

2. NPR’S 2011 Cookbook Round-Up: I was thrilled to be listed on T. Susan Chang’s short list. She cited it as the “Best Everyday French” cookbook.

3. A wonderfully insightful review by Cakes, Tea, and Dreams blogger Katie Noah Gibson appeared on the Shelf Awareness site. Here’s my favorite quote from the review,

“[Wini] marries her love of French cuisine with innovation and practicality, appealing to busy home cooks and would-be foodies who can’t spend all day at the stove. While not all the recipes are quick or light, they all bring the flavors of France to the American kitchen–with fewer calories, fewer dirty dishes and a lot less prep time.”

4. Publishers Weekly. This reviewer tapped into the joie-de-vivre spirit of the book, and also mentioned that it is “a good read.” That was so nice to hear—the stories behind the recipes, and explanations of France and how the French dine, are a big part of the book (besides the recipes, of course!).

5. Dallas Morning News. Leslie Brenner had said nice things about the book on her Eatsblog Website.

There’s more, but I know that you don’t come to this blog to see me tout my own cookbook—you’re here to glean cooking and lifestyle tips on how French women cook today….I promise to get back to that with my very next post, but I wanted to share….
