Inspired by the fine ingredients at La Grande Épicerie de Paris—the famous gourmet food shop in the upscale Bon Marché department store—she shares her twist on both traditional French classics and dishes with a distinctly British flavor: from smoked magret of duck to pear tarte tatin, and from Welsh rarebit to Guinness cake. Designed with the home chef’s tight schedule in mind, the recipes—divided into appetizers, soups, and salads; main courses and side dishes; and desserts—are quick and easy to prepare. Each recipe is accompanied by tips and a suggested drink pairing.
