It’s publication day for 3 beautiful books!


It’s a proud day at Quadrille as we publish three very exciting new titles. Spanning the generations of cooks today, we have new books from old friends Michel Roux OBE and Trine Hahnemann, as well as Sasha Wilkins’ first - the excellent Friends, Food, Family: Recipes and Secrets from LibertyLondonGirl. The beautiful covers are above, but scroll down to have a look inside each book and find out more about each one.

The Essence of French Cooking by Michel Roux (Quadrille, £30)


In this very personal book, Michel Roux distils a lifetime’s knowledge into a definitive work on French food and cooking. Based around 100 classic recipes that have stood the test of time, this lavishly illustrated book explores the diversity of French cuisine, with Michel giving modern interpretations of classic dishes, with his favourite variations and accompaniments.

Photographed on location in France, this extraordinarily beautiful book embraces the timeless essence of French cuisine and conveys the flavours and variety of French cooking today. Today at the Waterside Inn, they celebrate holding 3 Michelin stars for an unbroken 30 years, an  awe-inspiring achievement on which all of Quadrille heartily congratulate the team.

Scandinavian Baking by Trine Hahnemann (Quadrille, £25)


A world of steamed-up kitchen windows, cake parties on deserted Scandinavian beaches, family Christmas traditions, flaky Danish pastries, crusty dense breads and creamy layer cakes is summoned up in Trine Hahnemann’s spectacularly beautiful new baking book.

Here, Trine presents 100 authentic Scandinavian recipes with a modern twist, shot on location in Scandinavia. In the book, she teaches us how we can fit baking in to our busy lives, without compromising on quality. This is a definitive work to instruct, inspire and delight.
