Key Words with Peter and Jane Level 4c - Fun at School



A stylish collection of French family recipes by the author of CHOCOLAT

Joanne Harris's bestselling novels, CHOCOLAT, BLACKBERRY WINE and FIVE QUARTERS OF THE ORANGE, are affectionately known as her culinary trilogy. In them, Joanne Harris whets our appetites with some tantalisingly delicious recipes taken from her own grandmere's recipe book. For, like Framboise, the heroine of FIVE QUARTERS OF THE ORANGE, Joanne has family recipes which have been passed down through the generations and which she shares with us now in a mouth-watering celebration of French cuisine. From pumpkin soup to Moules Mariniere, from Tarte aux cassis to Fouace Aveyronnaise (Grandmother's festival loaf), and taking in salads, starters, fish, poultry and plenty more along the way, these are simple and stylish recipes from the heart of the French family kitchen. Illustrated with stunning integrated photographs and complemented by anecdotes from her family, past and present, THE FRENCH KITCHEN will be a must-have cookbook for all lovers of food and France.

About the authors

Joanne Harris

Joanne Harris’s Whitbread-shortlisted Chocolat was made into an Oscar-nominated film starring Juliette Binoche and Johnny Depp. She is the author of many other bestselling novels, including Lollipop Shoes and Peaches for Monsieur le Curé, both also featuring Vianne Rocher, as is her new novel The Strawberry Thief. She has also written acclaimed novels in such diverse genres as fantasy based on Norse myth (Runemarks, Runelight, The Gospel of Loki), and the Malbry cycle of dark psychological thrillers (Gentlemen & Players, Blueeyedboy, and Different Class).

Born in Barnsley, of an English father and a French mother, she spent fifteen years as a teacher before (somewhat reluctantly) becoming a full-time writer. In 2013, she was awarded an MBE. She lives in Yorkshire, plays bass and flute in a band first formed when she was sixteen, and works in a shed in her garden.

Fran Warde

Fran Warde's career has been fuelled by a passion for food. Trained as a chef, she worked at the Café Royal, on an Australian prawn trawler, ran her own cookery school and then moved into food styling and food writing. She was the food editor at Red Magazine and is the author of Ginger Pig Meat Book, Ginger Pig Farmhouse Cookbook, Food for Friends,Eat, Drink, Live and Thirty Minute Italian and is also co-author of The Little Book of Chocolat, The French Market and The French Kitchen with Joanne Harris. Fran lives in West London with her husband and two children and has been helping as a volunteer at Maggie's, Charing Cross where she met Catherine, and was inspired to feel that this book is really necessary to many people and families.
