French Food My WayFrench Food My Way
Marc Thuet
Alsation-transplant and Toronto chef Marc Thuet demonstrates a new appreciation for delicious, seasonal French food.

Slightly more complex than a casual cookbook, Thuet uses his fair share of truffles, foie gras and caviar, though readers dedicated enough to include such luxury are sure to be in for a treat. A challenge to the casual cook, but an achievable challenge nonetheless. Hardcover, 243 pp. $39.99.
