Laura Calder is one of Canada's most charming Food Network hosts, proving herself witty, engaging, an excellent teacher and a great deal of fun. Laura's passion for cooking and writing about food shows in her elegant cookbooks, and Dinner Chez Moi is no exception. A menu-based, seasonal cookbook offering multiple options and mix-and-match menus gives cooks as many ideas for meals as there are days in the year. Dinner parties, Laura says, are not stuffy and difficult ordeals; rather, as she puts it, "in my world, -dinner party' just means eating with others. It can be as simple as an omelette or a baked potato, but if I'm not stuck eating it alone, that's party enough for me!" Dinner Chez Moi is a book for anyone who wants to cook for people they love. Menus deliver delicious food, thoughtful advice and amusing real-life stories, with a light touch.

I'm a bit of a cookbook collector, and I know what I like : tasty food, made from scratch from high quality, reasonable accessible ingredients, but that don't require endless kitchen slave hours. I prefer things with a French bistro take, and by that I pretty much mean quick, freshly made, but delicious & company friendly.
This book hits the nail on the head, plus it adds lovely photos of the finished product (something to aspire to), and charming life-story intros.

I ran out & bought this, as soon as my due date arrived.
