Marjorie Williams and Beatrice Peltre, Markets of Paris and La Tartine Gourmande

“This is the perfect book format for toting around Paris. . .Markets of Paris describes in thoughtful prose a variety of Paris markets, focusing primarily on the 65 outdoor food markets that are an essential part of the Paris landscape. . . .But, for me, what really sets this book apart is the careful prose. Time is taken to capture the essence of how one market’s aura can differ from any other in Paris...There’s just enough here to whet your appetite, get you into the Metro, or putting on your walking shoes to explore neighborhoods that may have escaped your attention.”

“As bright as a sunny day in the French countryside, La Tartine Gourmande will inspire cooks with fresh, vibrant vegetables and colorful fruits and berries. From breakfast through dessert, this lushly photographed book by Béatrice Peltre will have cooks everywhere licking their lips . . . and their plates!”
David Lebovitz, author of Ready for Dessert and The Sweet Life in Paris
