Who would enjoy this book? Who couldn't use a little comfort food?
• Who wrote it: Hillary Davis
• Who published it: Gibbs Smith
• Other highlights: Comfort is a universal language — these recipes are warm, often cheese-filled or eggy (or both), sweet when they need to be and deeply savory when they're not. And yet, they are also very distinctly French. These are the kinds of foods that you'd encounter in a French bistro or, if you're lucky enough to have an aunt or a good friend who has settled abroad, on a kitchen table.
As we head into fall and cooler days, this cookbook with its new-but-familiar comfort food dishes is not likely to leave the kitchen very often.
