Paris Express is a book of quick, modern recipes that will have you breezily whipping up gorgeous French meals in the blink of an eye. While not every recipe here is a fifteen-minute miracle-some do take a little bit of time, but no effort-each one will transport you into a Paris state of mind: a place of breeziness, insouciance, whimsy, beauty and delight. Frankly, to a place where time slows down a bit.

With full-colour photography, roughly 120 fabulous recipes, sample menus and a generous smattering of art de vivre, tips and ideas Paris Express is a confidence-building companion for home cooks who have no time to fuss, but whose lives in the kitchen (and elsewhere) are craving instant cheer, indulgence and inspiration.

Not a cookbook I would buy. Too few pictures of the recipes, and not all that many recipes that were appealing to me. I liked the selection of simple desserts. The recipes don't have too long lists of ingredients and the time to prepare is often mentioned, which I really appreciate. No nutritional information.

This is the first cookbook of Laura Calder's that I've read, but I found it full of interesting autobiographical and semi-instructional notes as well as authentic recipes that capture Parisian lifestyle rather than travel cooking.
