Fireside Food for Cold Winter Nights

More than 100 comforting and warming recipes


More than 100 satisfying recipes to warm body and soul as you snuggle up against the cold by the fireside.

Winter is the perfect time to take a break from the pace of modern life, slow down, and savor a nourishing home-cooked meal. For this book, Lizzie Kamenetzky has taken inspiration from snow-covered mountains and Alpine chalets, with all her favorite food from ski towns and winter holidays. Start the day with a sustaining breakfast such as homemade Brioche or Pain aux Raisins. For lunch, only a hearty soup or stew will do—try French Onion Soup or Rocky Mountain Stew. Mid-afternoon, enjoy a treat such as Madeleines or Banana Cake with a steaming cup of coffee. For evening entertaining, there are lots of comforting recipes to try, such as Cassoulet or Confit Duck, as well as some lighter options, such as Parmesan Cheesecake. There is also a whole chapter devoted to delightful cheese dishes that are so perfect in winter, from Dauphinoise to Swiss Chard Gratin. Finish the meal with a Creme Brulée or Tarte Tatin.
