This book is all about fruit: 240 mouth-watering pages filled to the brim with new recipes that show cooking with fruit in a new light; from a multitude of delicious salads such as Apple, Fennel and Watermelon Radish, Citrus Salad with Avocado Vinaigrette, main courses featuring succulent dishes as an Apricot and Lamb Shank Tajine or Citrus Salmon to myriad desserts such as an Eton Mess, a Pear and Pomegranate Pavlova or perhaps an Apple and Pear Strudel, all these dishes celebrate fruit in all its guises.
"Pascale Beale has done it again! Les Fruits: Savory and Sweet will awaken your appetite and inspire you to incorporate fruit into every meal of the day. These seasonal, farmers market-driven recipes are fresh, innovative and accessible. Luscious photographs accompany each delicious recipe. Salade is one of Chaucer's Books bestsellers, and Les Fruits is poised to follow in its place! We eagerly anticipate its arrival."
— Chaucer's Books
About Pascale Beale:
Pascale Beale grew up in England and France surrounded by a family which has always been passionate about food, wine and the arts. She was taught to cook by her French mother and grandmother. After 15 years working in the property and financial markets in California, all the while continuing her quest for good food and culinary knowledge during gastronomic pilgrimages to Europe, she returned to her first passion, cooking. She has, over the past 15 years, written nine cookery books, hundreds of articles for local newspapers, food magazines, and is a columnist for the James Beard award winning publication, Edible Santa Barbara.
The Pascale's Kitchen Cooking Channel was launched on YouTube in September 2016 with videos showcasing seasonal, Mediterranean and Californian inspired dishes.
In March 2020, with the coronavirus shutdown and the cancellation of her book tour for her latest book, Salade II, Pascale launched an IGTV channel on Instagram with daily episodes showcasing easy to make dishes while quarantined at home.
As in person classes are not currently possible, Pascale also launched (in April 2020) a new series of virtual cooking classes, hosted on Zoom.
Her company, Pascale’s Kitchen, brings a range of culinary products, including her signature line of custom blended herbs and spices, oils and vinegars, as well as exquisite kitchen and tableware, to its customers, making cooking pleasurable, delicious and fun.
