Food Friday: “JAN: A Breath of French Air”

This Friday, we’re so excited to share with you a recipe from JAN: A Breath of French Air.

It was extremely difficult to choose just one recipe from the many delicious ones you’ll find within, but we did it! Read on to learn all about the book, watch a short video featuring Jan, his restaurant, and his food, and learn how to cook like a Michelin star chef at home!

Food Friday: “Round the World in Eighty Dishes”

Today’s Food Friday book is from Grub Street Publishing. Round the World in Eighty Dishes is a collection of recipes from all over the world, organized by region.
