A Bite of Healthy, Fresh and Delightful
Le Pain Quotidien is best known for handmade breads, tartines, soups and salads. Now in cookbook form, the bakery-turned-restaurant shares its secrets with home chefs looking to lighten their diet with simple, wholesome, healthy fare. In Le Pain Quotidien Cookbook, by Alain Coumont and Jean-Pierre Gabriel, you’ll find wonderful open-faced sandwich recipes, including smoked salmon and the spring-filled asparagus and ricotta. I have a penchant for the lamb and rosemary tartine; the leg of lamb is roasted, chilled and thinly sliced. Served alongside a dollop of mayonnaise – it just melts in your mouth. The best part is finding the cold leftovers in the fridge late at night. Le Pain Quotiden Cookbook by Alain Coumont and Jean-Pierre Gabriel is available online and in stores for $30. It’s a delight!
