Excuse me for a moment whilst I get all fangirly on you…
Clotilde’s site been one of my favorites since… three computers ago. I think she does some of the best food photography and writing on the whole Internet. This year (in case you haven’t been paying attention), Clotilde’s been providing a desktop calendar for her readers, as well as defining edible idioms.
She’s not an undiscovered secret (anymore), other people thought she was great and gave her a book deal. Although I’ve put quite a few of Clotilde’s recipes on the table, there’s nothing quite like having an actual book to refer to and use. My co-blogger gave me Chocolate & Zucchini: Daily Adventures in a Parisian Kitchen for my birthday, and I’ve just spent the weekend nibbling my way through it. Twice in the past few days recipes from the book have ended up in front of my roommates, and another one will hit the table tonight.
Ah, nothing quite like curling up with a good book, a glass of wine, and a cat — just be careful it’s not a book that inspires you to get up and start cooking at 2am.
