The Ethnic Paris CookbookWinner of "Best Illustrations" at the 2007 Gourmand World Cookbook Awards
Meet the Authors/Book Signing
Paris has become just as important on the ethnic cuisine circuit as London or New York, thanks to the mouth-watering dishes lovingly cooked, more often than not, by immigrants from former French colonies. Paris is now home to a multitude of immigrants from ex-colonies and protectorates that arrived in successive waves over the last 60 years: Senegalese, Algerians, Tunisians, Moroccans, Vietnamese, Cambodians, Laotians and Lebanese, to name a few. The richness of these cultures provides a kaleidoscope of tastes and experiences captured in The Ethnic Paris Cookbook by Charlotte Puckette and Olivia Kiang-Snaije. Learn more at their website: http://www.theethnicpariscookbook.com, or simply come and meet them at The Red Wheelbarrow!
