These sixty recipes—organized around ten themes, including holiday traditions, lunch box contents, joie de vivre, and the French Sunday lunch—are a sensational catalog of the Webster clan’s favorite food moments. The double-baked three-cheese soufflé, chicken and tarragon pies, or lemon curd panna cotta with fresh summer berries are just a few of the featured dishes, all of which, when paired with good conversation and company, are ideal catalysts for creating an occasion remembered for years to come. Fresh, seasonal ingredients are always highlighted, as is the value of setting aside as much time as possible for these all-important meals shared with family and friends.

About the Author:

A consuming passion for all things French led Australian-born Jane Webster to a life between two countries and cultures. After their first trip to France, Webster, her husband, Peter, and their four children returned year after year, eventually buying a château in the tiny village of Bosgouet in Normandy. The first two years in Bosgouet were chronicled in the Australian best seller At My French Table: Food, Family and Joie de Vivre in a Corner of Normandy (Penguin Random House, 2008). Webster has since published another two French food and lifestyle memoirs: French Ties: Love, Life and Recipes (Penguin Random House, 2012) and French House Chic (Thames & Hudson, 2017). She operates her culinary and lifestyle experiences, the French table, from her magnificent château, gardens, and potager, which provide the perfect setting for receiving guests in the authentic French fashion, an art Webster has perfected.
