Praise

“In My French Family Table Béatrice Peltre has once again brought together a collection that deftly balances tradition and contemporary tastes, the realities of the everyday kitchen and a subtle sense of luxury. With warmth and her distinctive, deft touch, the recipes feel wholesome, special, and thoroughly personal.”—Tara O’Brady, author of Seven Spoons
 
“Béea’s unique mix of simplicity and style shines through the entire book, and her kind, approachable voice illuminates the beautiful recipes she shares. This new collection of hers is bound to inspire new and delicious traditions for your family.”— Clotilde Dusoulier, creator of the blog Chocolate & Zucchini and author of The French Market Cookbook
 
“In My French Family Table, Béa reminds us of the importance of the table. To gather together for the meal, which need not be fussy or complicated, is really what is central in feeding a family. But the food is what brings us to the table and Béa never disappoints there. The recipes are simple yet inspirational and tucked in between her poetic words and stunning photographs are countless tips and tricks for making each recipe a success.”It’s no secret that the French love food and in My French Family Table, Béa brings the passion, love, care, and beauty ingrained in her from her French childhood to our table. The recipes are inspiring and approachable. Béa’s stunning imagery will send straight into the kitchen and her friendly voiced laced with years of kitchen wisdom will guide you confidently while you are there. —Ashley Rodriguez, creator of the blog Not without Salt and author of Date Night In

“We have similarly aged children as Béatrice and are huge fans of La Tartine Gourmande (blog and book!) so we were thrilled to receive her new book. My French Family Table is focused around one of our favourite subjects—cooking and enjoying food with your family—and it is just as gorgeous, colourful and warm as her first book. We also love how Béa makes gluten-free baking so natural, easy and effortless. Truly inspiring!”—David Frenkiel & Luise Vindahl, authors of The Green Kitchen and Green Kitchen Travels
 
“I have always been attracted to Béea’s cooking for the way she so beautifully and deliciously weaves color, flavor, and fresh produce into her recipes. Her second book is breathtaking and full of meals and treats I can’t wait to make for my own family.”—Sara Forte, author of Sprouted Kitchen and Sprouted Kitchen: Bowl + Spoon
