Jocelyne Sibuet has written this book in response to the many inquiries of her admiring guests who seek to recreate the French country style in their own home. From mountain-top chalets and beachside cottages to rustic farmhouses, Jocelyn shows how to use colors from nature, make different styles work together, and find sources of inspiration for every corner of your home: livingrooms, bedrooms, gardens, terraces, and kitchens. And no kitchen would be complete without the irresistible scent of her authentic cooking wafting through the doorway. Each chapter features Jocelyn's recipes, which range from breakfast muesli and spiced hot chocolate to a grand Christmas dinner. Other recipes include raspberry wine, baked sea bream, vegetable tart, cuttlefish ink risotto, lemon mousse, and blueberry tart. Jocelyn's own black book of the best sources for these French country goods completes the text with the best addresses for fabric, furniture, antiques, and regional products.
