Cookbook Giveaway: The Little Paris Kitchen

Rachel Khoo

The Little Paris Kitchen CoverRachel Khoo, the British host of Little Paris Kitchen on Cooking Channel (Saturdays at 2:30pm ET), thinks French cooking gets an unwarranted bad name. The inner circle of food culture has embraced fanciful molecular gastronomy, uber locavorism and other various food fads, while French cooking has been associated with ornery, tall toque-adorned chefs dousing incredibly intricate recipes with butter. Rachel Khoo is out to prove that you don’t need formal Le Cordon Bleu training (though she has it) to prepare a delicious French meal. She does it every day with a little oven and a two ring gas stove in her tiny Parisian flat that she had converted into the city’s smallest restaurant.

Rachel’s new cookbook, The Little Paris Kitchen, contains 120 simple but classic French recipes. It covers the mainstays you’d expect — Bouillabaisse and Mousse aux chocolat — but also has stories about her own twists on recipes and her life in Paris.

Want a sneak peek? Here are a few recipes from the book:

    Rachel transforms cassoulet into a soup, and adds mushrooms for depth of flavor. Plus, she makes sure that she's entirely adorable while preparing the soup. Too many cooks skimp on that step, and you can really taste the difference.
