Oh fortune! I was lucky enough to receive an advance copy of Mireille Guiliano's new cookbook, The French Women Don't Get Fat Cookbook.
I also have three copies to give away to three lucky and cultured readers! Scroll down below for your chance to get a copy before everyone else.
I was pleasantly surprised by how simple most of the recipes are in Guiliano's cookbook. I'd argue that the bulk of them contain less than ten ingredients. I am dying to try the Spaghetti with Lime and Arugula as well as the breakfast Quinoa with Almonds, Hazelnuts, and Apricots. They also sound so simple and so fresh.
The first recipe I tried was the Beet and Ginger Gazpacho.
Magnifique! I simply cannot get enough of beets lately. I want them every which way: hot, cold, in salads, with goat cheese, in my juicer in the morning. I ♥ beets. They add a lovely, deep flavour to this gazpacho and the recipe has a nice heat to it from the wasabi and the ginger. Je l'adore!
The French Women Don't Get Fat Cookbook will be hitting bookshelves on April 27, but, lucky readers, you could win an advance copy for yourselves!
