DUCASSE: FLAVORS OF FRANCE, By Alain Ducasse with Linda Dannenberg

In this, his first American cookbook, M. Ducasse shares the principles and techniques of his uniquely elemental cuisine. Time Magazine hailed the book as “stunningly produced and poetically written.” The brilliance of his food—apparent in recipes made with no more than two ingredients enhanced by a simple aromatic element, with seasoning reduced to a few grains of salt—explains why he is "the Escoffier of our time" (Le Point).

Linda Dannenberg, a contributor to Town & Country, The Los Angeles Times, and Wine Spectator, has worked with and written about many of France’s great chefs and bakers. Her love for the art of French cooking finds expression in her numerous books, among them Paris Boulangerie-Patisserie, Paris Bistro Cooking, and French Tarts.

(French Country Diary 2014, by Linda Dannenberg; photographs by Guillaume de Laubier. Hardcover, $23.99 U.S.; Full-color photographs throughout, 8" x 8"; Saifu cloth spine; ISBN 978-0-9887-1562-2)

THE FRENCH COUNTRY DIARY 2014 will arrive in stores nationwide and online at the end of August. Building on its sell-out international success last season, the French Country Diary, published by ARTS & STYLE PUBLISHING, is one of the most beautiful and sought-after engagement calendars for 2014. The iconic and collectible diary makes a well-priced gift of unparalled quality and refinement.

The elegant slipcase of this 26th edition of the FRENCH COUNTRY DIARY 2014 features a vibrant French blue and white Provençal fabric pattern called “Mazan,” a contemporary take on a classic motif, with a contrasting blue and yellow border fabric from the venerable Olivades textiles company in the Provençal village of Saint-Etienne-du-Grès. Within the slipcase lies a linen-textured hardcover book with a red floral design that displays the year ‘2014’ in a decorative medallion. Vintage typography and fifty-eight evocative new photographs by Guillaume de Laubier enhance the captivating design of this unique engagement calendar.

Each of the week-at-a-glance spreads offers a vignette of the French countryside, including gardens, private homes, villages and inspiring landscapes. In this year's Diary we visit the posh resort of Biarritz, poised on the shores of the Atlantic in the Pays Basque; stroll through the romantic gardens of Eugénie-les-Bains in the Landes region; explore the palm decked harbor town of Villefranche-sur-Mer on the Mediterranean, with its pastel-hued hillside homes; glory in a springtime morning on the terrace of a trend-setting Paris florist; and enjoy a pre-Christmas evening at the Left Bank’s iconic Brasserie Lipp. Design elements are as handsome as ever. Lush four-color endpapers, generous space for jotting daily notes, a ribbon stitched in to mark each week, and back matter that includes decorative address pages are what the Diary’s worldwide legion of fans have come to expect.
