“It’s all in the true spirit of market cooking, letting spontaneity and a sense of fun be the guiding lights to the adventure,” Brian Defehr. Les Marches Francais is a great cookbook. I picked it up as it is cooking for the seasons from the Paris markets. I didn’t realize this cookbook was gluten free when I purchased it.
The recipes were very delicious and easy to follow. Les Marches Francais feeds my love for Paris and it’s wonderful food.
Corn Pasta Salad with Avocado, Lime &
A good pasta salad is one of my favorite things to eat. I couldn’t located corn fussili as the recipe calls for so I used brown rice pasta (I wanted to keep the recipe gluten free).
The salad was great and the dressing was even better. This recipe is definietly going to be one I make again. I may try it with zucchini noodles next time instead of pasta.
Scallops & Asparagus with Lemon
I am a big fan of hollandaise sauce and mousseline sauce is the same sauce with the addition of whipped heavy cream. Asparagus is something that I don’t cook very often but very much enjoy.
This recipe was put together really well. The scallops and sauce were a great pair and with the addition of the asparagus it was a perfect meal. Another recipe that will be in my regular rotation.
I loved this cookbook. Les Marches Francais is a great cookbook for anyone, not just people who eat gluten free. The variety of recipes allow for everyone to find something that they will love. I find the directions to be clear and easy to follow.
