Review: St Tropez by Nina Parker






Another review coming your way today I am afraid (I have recently moved house and haven’t been able to spend as much time making and doing things as I would like). However, this book is fully deserving of your attention as it gorgeous and I pretty much want to try out every recipe. My friend very kindly gave me this book as an early birthday present; it was so thoughtful as my family and I have been going on holiday to the South of France for over 12 years and LOVE the food there. The book is a collection of recipes from the South of France, all inspired by the places, author and chef, Nina Parker dines at whilst in France. Her take on Riviera classics are a “personal food-themed journey” and you can expect strong, fresh flavours as well as utterly delicious, vibrant food. But don’t be fooled by the title “St Tropez” as this is not a collection of haute-hoity-toity-cuisine rather a celebration of the traditional dishes from this part of France and the old-world charm and glamour which accompanies them. There is nothing particularly showy about these recipes just great flavours and combinations of ingredients which really appeals to me. Additionally the photography is stunning and will not only give you a desire to cook up some of these recipes but go to the South of France and try the dishes which inspired them! The book is split into breakfast, lunch, teatime, drinks and canapes, dinner and dessert meaning you really are spoilt for choice at any time of the day. Mouthwatering recipes to try: ratatouille (one of the best meals I have cooked recently), green polenta with mushrooms, tarragon chicken with mushrooms and chickpeas (another dish which has been added to my favourites), steak tartine mushroom pasta and chicken skewers with chorizo and thyme.
