Légumivore

They were long given supporting roles on our plates, and expected to adapt their performances to those of the true stars: tender veal, elegant sole, hearty steak. Now, thanks to the growing vegetarian trend, vegetables are leading solo careers. Carefully chosen, prepared and dressed, they are here showcased by a young Swedish chef, winner of the 2014 Bocuse d’Or Europe. From the classic carrot, spinach or leek to lesser-known or forgotten gems such as kohlrabi and Jerusalem artichoke, this book of 85 recipes pays tribute to the natural beauty of these ingredients.

Gaspard ne répond plus

This debut novel cleverly weaves together three stories: that of Gaspard de Ronsard, a participant in a Vietnamese reality TV show; that of the TV channel (when he disappears); and that of an outspoken commentator living in a remote part of the country. The tale also paints sharp, humorous portraits of three strong-minded women. A race against time, raising questions about modern life and the need to reconnect with our roots.

Dis, comment ça pousse?

How do apples, carrots and cabbages grow? The question’s so simple you’d think this pretty book would be best left to inquisitive kids on market day. But there’s something for everyone to learn in this volume, even the most knowledgeable gardeners. For example, that peaches and apricots originally came from China; that there are plums named after queens; and that kiwis grow on vines, not trees.

Quiconque exerce ce métier stupide mérite tout ce qui lui arrive

The title comes from an Orson Welles line: “Anyone working in this idiotic profession deserves everything they get.” Christophe Donner draws on cinema’s energy, glitz, fast cuts and sassy dialogue to trace the portraits of three rivals of French cinemaClaude Berri, Maurice Pialat and producer Jean-Pierre Rassam. A chapter in the history of French movie-making and a tracking shot through the 1970s.
