Murmrr Lit welcomes Melissa Clark for the launch of her new cookbook Dinner in French

About Dinner in French:

Just as Julia Child brought French cooking to twentieth-century America, so now Melissa Clark brings French cooking into the twenty-first century. She first fell in love with France and French food as a child; her parents spent their August vacations traversing the country in search of the best meals with Melissa and her sister in tow. Near to her heart, France is where Melissa’s family learned to cook and eat. And as her own culinary identity blossomed, so too did her understanding of why French food is beloved by Americans.

Now Melissa, one of the nation’s favorite food writers, marries the French food she loves with the weeknight friendly techniques and ingredients she relies on in her Brooklyn kitchen. In Dinner in French, you will find a Ratatouille Sheet-pan Chicken; a Tahini Omelet that marries traditional and modern; a golden and puffy Cornmeal and Harissa Soufflé that resembles a southern spoon bread. New classics include Roasted Tarragon Chicken with Crispy Mushrooms, Scalloped Potato Gratin, and Apricot Tarte Tatin.
