Many of our readers would struggle to name an iconic French dish that isn’t based on (or mightily improved by) something that came from an animal. But according to our Contributing Editor Clotilde Dusoulier, who just released a new cookbook celebrating the bounty of our local markets, an important shift is taking place in France.
Clotilde Dusoulier is the young Parisienne behind the award-winning food blog Chocolate & Zucchini. Born and raised in Paris, she discovered her passion for food while working in California as a software engineer. She started her blog in 2003 and its success has allowed her to start a career as a full-time food writer. She is the author of many books, including The French Market Cookbook: Vegetarian Recipes from My Parisian Kitchen (2013), Clotilde’s Edible Adventures in Paris (2008), and Chocolate & Zucchini (2007). She has also helped edit I Know How to Cook (2009), the newly translated bible of French home cooking. She lives in Montmartre.
