Book Review: The French Women Don’t Get Fat Cookbook

August 20th, 2011 · 1 Comment



There’s one thing you can always count on in my house is me cooking…not always doing the dishes right away, but, I do enjoy cooking. I have a vegetable garden and have made a commitment to my family to eat as healthfully as possible. I also collect cookbooks, so many, that I had to dedicate an entire kitchen cabinet just for books. Lately, though, I rarely grab a cookbook or even look at a recipe, I simply cook the food I know how to and don’t deviate into new territory!

However, since the French Women Don’t Get Fat Cookbook arrived in the mail yesterday, I’ve been a reading fool! For me it’s really nice reading about how other people eat, how they make food enjoyable and how it brings the family to the table and everybody has something to talk about–food!

Mireille Guiliano includes recipes for breakfast, lunch, dinner, special occasions and deserts. For our lifestyle, I particularly enjoyed reading all the unique dishes calling for fennel, leeks, oranges or beets! Foods I like but rarely cook with. Also, there is an entire section devoted to cooking fish in packets that include the side dish, another thing I never do!

I thoroughly enjoyed reading this cookbook and can’t wait to try some of her recipes!

You can pre-order this cookbook on Amazon here.

FTC-the book was free and the opinion in mine.

    I just found your blog and I think you are writing about very interesting and cool stuff! I do love eating and exercising too and trying to balance it up with my rather busy life. Thanks for this book review!
