From celebrated author and blogger B#65533;atrice Peltre comes a much anticipated second book, focusing on everyday foods (all gluten-free) to share with family and friends .

To the French, food is one of life's greatest pleasures, and in B#65533;atrice Peltre's home, each meal is a small celebration. In her kitchen, bright, colorful ingredients are transformed into wholesome, delicious dishes and served with love. Here, B#65533;atrice's relaxed, modern approach to classic French cooking meets the challenge of creating healthy meals for the whole family--meals to be shared #65533; table , presented with grace and style.
In My French Family Table, B#65533;atrice offers a beautiful assortment of over 120 recipes for naturally gluten-free dishes that feature whole grains, colorful produce, and distinctive spices. Every meal is an inspired work of love--from breakfast dishes such as Buttermilk, Lemon, and Strawberry Brunch Cake to a lunch of French Green Bean Salad with Cro#65533;tons , Olives, and Ricotta Salata alongside a healthy soup or vegetable tart. In the afternoon B#65533;atrice loves to eat the traditional French go#65533;ter with her daughter, Lulu, whose favorite snack is Brown Butter Madeleines with Buckwheat and Chocolate Chips . Who could resist a Sunday supper of Chicken Stuffed with Herbs, Walnuts, and Grainy Mustard , followed by the sweet treat of Baked Apricots with Lemon Verbena or the indulgent Chocolate Mousse with Salted Caramel and Matcha Tea Cookies ? B#65533;atrice also includes recipes that are particularly child-friendly to cook and eat, inspired by her kitchen adventures with Lulu.
With her creative use of ingredients, B#65533;atrice ups the ante on what family foods can be--incredibly tasty, beautiful, and nourishing. B#65533;atrice's signature bright photography, impeccable styling, and sweet storytelling make My French Family Table an inspiring collection of recipes for feeding a family and feeding them well.
