Author(s): Beatrice Peltre
From celebrated author and blogger Béatrice Peltre comes a much anticipated second book, focusing on everyday foods (all gluten-free) to share with family and friends.
In her signature style of blending classically French dishes with exotic, modern twists, Peltre offers up recipes for each meal of the day plus the traditional French goûter (afternoon snack), as well as food that she cooks and especially loves to share with her daughter, Lulu.
Peltre ups the ante on what gluten-free foods can be--incredibly tasty, beautiful, and nourishing. Whole grains, colorful produce, spices, and creative use of ingredients abound. Peltre's bright photography, impeccable styling, and sweet storytelling bring the book to life. All these elements come together to create an inspiring collection of recipes for feeding a family and feeding them well.
