The Ethnic Paris Cookbook

Winner of "Best Illustrations" at the 2007 Gourmand World Cookbook Awards

Meet the Authors/Book Signing
Come meet Charlotte Puckette and Olivia Snaije, authors of The Ethnic Paris Cookbook (Dorling Kindersley Publishers Ltd.).

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:, or simply come and meet them at The Red Wheelbarrow!
