French home cooking for busy lives

After 30 years of cooking, tasting and refining some of the finest French cooking there is, Olivier has selected over 90 dishes that he has developed throughout his life in various parts of France, in London and in the North West of England – his home for the last 25 years.

Each dish is assembled using simple, readily available ingredients to create a tantalising menu of starters, snacks, mains and desserts – including an extensive vegetarian section and some professional ‘cheats’ to make the prep process that little bit quicker. 

The book runs to 230 pages, with each recipe accompanied by a short introduction or anecdote explaining why Olivier was inspired to include it and beautifully illustrated with glorious photography.




A thank you to our supporters 

Over the summer, hundreds of fans, friends and followers pledged their support for A Taste of Home, raising over £30,000 towards its development and launch. The team is massively grateful for this incredible show of support and we would like to say a big thank you to each and every person who chose to join us on this journey – we hope you love the book as much as we do!
