This book, A Kitchen in France: A Year of Cooking in My Farmhouse was a Christmas gift from last year, and I have been turning the pages ever since - and over again. With every page, I find something I hadn't noticed before, whether it is in the photos or the text. Mimi Thorisson, the author of the popular blog, The Manger is the creator of this beautiful book. She spent her childhood holidays in Paris, and the south of France.
In this current book by Mimi, she chronicles the family's meals and life in her old farmhouse that was formerly an old abandoned chateau. A few years ago Mimi and her husband, photographer Oddur Thorisson moved their large family of six children and several dogs, and moved from their Paris apartment to this historic farmhouse which is located in the French countryside of Médoc.
Mimi has a new book soon to be released on October 25,
