The book includes a wide range of starters such as pumpkin velouté soup and scallop salad; entrées such as salmon with morels, scampi carpaccio, spicy lamb loin, and duck à l'orange; side dishes such as pesto pasta and risotto with zucchini and parmesan; and desserts such as apricot tarts, macaroons with mascarpone, and caramel ice cream, among many other delights. Recipes range from classic French dishes (foie gras, chicken fricassée, and crêpes Suzette) to international favorites (lobster Newburg and veal saltimbocca).
