"Dinner in French is an invitation to travel with Melissa to the country she knows well and loves deeply, and to cook with your heart. Her recipes toggle between high and homey--I love when she says she adds 'a dose of Brooklyn moxie' to France's 'buttery haute cuisine.' But what I love most is what you get from this mix: Food you'll want to cook and share all the time, anywhere you are."--Dorie Greenspan "Oozing with charm, enthusiasm, and deep-rooted expertise as only she has, Dinner in French may just be my favorite Melissa Clark cookbook of all! Her palpable adoration for French cooking and the intuitive way she adapts it to her Brooklyn life make each recipe more approachable and alluring than the next. No need for a plane ticket to France when you can get in the kitchen with Melissa and savor all of this glorious food! Vive la cuisine!"--Gail Simmons "Dinner in French is a joy-filled love letter to France and a portrait of what it can do for a fledgling cook. Melissa Clark is never sentimental, though--her love is the result of a profound understanding of the French way with food, and a curious intelligence. There are classic recipes here but also plenty I was unaware of, and Melissa brings her own touches to many dishes. You'll want to book a flight to Paris or Marseille, or at least spend a weekend in a pool of sunlight, reading every word. Moving as well as inspiring."--Diana Henry "If you have ever dreamed of spending a summer eating/cooking in France, Dinner in French is as close as you can get without traveling there. Every recipe brings French cooking alive."--Tom Colicchio "Dinner in French could also be called the dinner that you want to eat tonight, this Saturday, and this Sunday, and actually every week and every season. Clark has an uncanny facility to translate complex dishes into their straightforward essentials, and with enough hunger and longing that, like a spell, she makes you want to make them. The cookbook is so appealing it will drive you a little crazy."--Bill Buford "A superb addition to [Clark's] cookbook repertoire. Whether they are classic French staples, such as Niçoise salad and scalloped potato gratin, or inspired twists on the classics, such as wine-braised chicken with orange and olives or crème fraîche caramels, each recipe is a hit. . . . Clark also provides dozens of helpful make-ahead tips. . . . Equally inviting are her introductions to each recipe, which are filled with fun anecdotes ("It took a long time for me to agree to taste a snail") and even more helpful tips ("If tarragon isn't your favorite herb, you can use chives"). This remarkable volume will entice avid home cooks to return to it time and again."--Publishers Weekly (starred review) "The French canon, but make it Brooklyn. Dinner in French is the invigorating, mouthwatering best of two worlds that Melissa Clark brings together like no one else. I can't wait to start cooking."--Lauren Collins "Whether you're craving bistro fare or a trip to Paris, you will love this joyful panoply of modern French recipes. Dinner in French reinvents the classics with Melissa Clark's signature sparkle, clever cooking techniques, and fresh flavors. Finally, the secrets behind simple, spectacular, seasonal French home cooking are available to all of us every day."--Ann Mah
New York Times star food writer Melissa Clark breaks down the new French classics with 150 recipes that reflect a modern yet distinctly French sensibility.

Very disappointingReviewed in the United Kingdom on 9 October 2020
This should have been a lovely book - the recipe titles look enticing, photos good & the author is a good cook, BUT, despite this, it's not easy (possible?) to cook from it as it has been so badly edited. 3 different measuring systems (cups, grams & ounces) in some recipes, others where sticks are not translated into metric or imperial & generally a mess. I have many (probably over 300) US cookbooks & am happy in any of the measuring systems but the lack of consistency & the direct translation (56grams) rather than a reworking of the recipe spoils it. A great pity as the ideas are good - I would buy a 2nd edition if this were sorted properly but am returning this one.

Fantastic book - well written, tested and all delish!Reviewed in the United Kingdom on 18 August 2020
I absolutely love this book. I have now tried around 10-15 of the recipes and they have all been great. I love that for each recipe there is a bit explaining which bits you can make beforehand which is great for when you are entertaining. I couldn’t recommend it more highly.

Great cookbookReviewed in Canada on 18 February 2021
Gave this as a gift, has so many amazing recipes! Might buy one for myself! Only complaint would be that the bottom of the spine was a bit warped (probably due to shipping) when it arrived. Otherwise it arrived on time.
