From easy weeknight meals to more elaborate Sunday dinners, learn the recipes and cooking style from the "other" French cuisine---the one that forms the foundation of the Mediterranean diet and celebrates local, fresh and light. Cuisine NiCoise is designed with olive oil, rather than butter and cream; is light, rather than bathed in rich sauces. And it uses fresh, locally sourced produce. Hillary Davis---food writer, cooking instructor, creator of the popular food blog MarchE Dimanche, and resident of the NiCoise area for over eleven years---introduces us to Cuisine NiCoise the cooking from the south of France, from the region surrounding the city of Nice, in her compelling new cookbook. Filled with information, tips, stories and recipes---Cuisine NiCoise is a complete guide with more than 100 recipes and gorgeous color photographs. Praise for Cuisine NiCoise: "Bright colors, sun-splashed days, fun, sybaritic pleasures--Hillary Davis captures on the plate everything delightful we associate with Nice. This food is extraordinarily fresh, delicious, and a feast for the eye as well. What a joy to be able to bring the good life into your own kitchen!" --Frances Mayes, best-selling author, Under The Tuscan Sun, The Tuscan Sun Cookbook "I am impressed! Hillary Davis has a unique perspective on cooking for which she makes a persuasive case in her new book. She believes that we learn how to cook not just from books but also from family, friends, restaurants, markets, and even from the dishes our food is served upon and the pots in which it's cooked." ---Paula Wolfert, best-selling author, The Cooking of Southwest France, The Food of Morocco "With this ode to NiCoise cooking, put together lovingly by Hillary Davis, you will bathe in the aromas of the NiCoise countryside, from the warm pungency of wild herbs, to the sweet, fresh melons and peaches at farmers' markets dotted throughout the countryside. Ms. Davis fell in love with the hilltop village of Bar-Sur-Loup, where she lived, cooked, ate and absorbed all that was around her. In Cuisine NiCoise she has made liberal use of everything she experienced and tasted; she has filled the book with tips and traditions; she has opened up a sun-kissed world for all to share. All of it will make you want to hop on an airplane and land in the center of the NiCoise countryside, at a table set for lunch! Photos by Steven Rothfeld make the book come alive with color. Bravo!" ---Susan Herrmann Loomis, author of On Rue Tatin "I think this book might just be the next best thing to living on the French Riviera!
