I’m going to start by giving away some of my FRENCH cookbooks. There are fewer of them and because I almost never use them and in many cases, never have used them, they are much easier to part with.
Excuse the poor snaps – I’m in the office and it’s gloomy. Night is almost upon us.
Book 1: Sucree by La Duree, Paris
Comes in a beautiful eau de nil box which opens to reveal….
There’s a faint mark on the box but the book has never been used.
Rave reviews on Amazon here
Book 2: Macaron by Pierre Herme
I bought this prior to meeting the man. It’s never seen the inside of my kitchen. I’d rather visit his shop, especially now he has one in London.
These days the book is available in English but I didn’t want to wait so make no mistake the one I’m giving away is in Pierre’s mother tongue. It has been well reviewed on Amazon – 10 out of 14 reviewers gave it 5 stars.
Book 3: Le Canard de Julie by Julie Andrieu
A big, soft cover book with the tiniest wear. 95% perfect, possibly more.
Good lord, there’s only one person attempting to sell this book on Amazon and they’ve priced it at £180. I’m offering it to you for free.
Book 4: Petit precis de cuisine moleculaire by Anne Cazor & Christine Lienard
Why would I struggle through this when I now have a copy of Modernist Cuisine?
Never used. The tiniest of scratches on the cover. Here’s its Amazon listing.
The books are in my office in Battersea. Post a comment if you want to swing by and pick one up. I’m in France for much of next week so I’ll check in again next Saturday 8 December and if there’s more than one person after a book I’ll put names in a hat and pick one out at random.
