La Tartine Gourmande: Recipes for an Inspired Life

I have been waiting for this moment for quite a while, and today is a big day for me. I am now holding a cookbook in my hands. My own cookbook. In fact, right now, I have boxes filled with it, ready to be shared.

And do you know what?

It feels overwhelming good.

It’s moving for me to think about the many hours I spent cooking, styling and photographing dishes, from breakfast, lunch, dinner and desserts, that we ate at home. Many times! Then writing stories that go along with the recipes, bringing wonderful memories for each one of them.

So what’s happening now?

You can decide.

The official release date of my cookbook is February 2012. But if you are keen to buy and receive it now, I am having an exclusive presale on a dedicated site to the cookbook.

To buy it now, you can click here.

I would like to thank you all for your support, all along. And also thank David from Davidlebovitz, Clotilde from ChocolateandZucchini, Shauna de Glutenfreegirl, Heidi from 101cookbooks and Dorie from DorieGreenspan for writing such encouraging and nice blurbs for the book. It means a lot.

I am really thrilled with the book. I hope you will enjoy it as much as I did when I was writing it.

Happy Cooking! I cannot wait to hear what you think!

Also, if you buy the book through here, the good news is that you will definitely receive it now, and not in February.

Le coin français

Cela fait longtemps que j’attends ce moment. Mais ça y est. Je tiens enfin mon livre de cuisine entre mes mains. En fait, plusieurs cartons en sont remplis. Prêts à être partagés.

Et vous savez quoi ?

Cela fait chaud au coeur d’y penser. Je suis très contente du résultat.

J’ai passé tant d’heures à cuisiner, styliser et photographier mes recettes. Et puis à écrire des histoires qui les accompagnent. Tant de souvenirs de repas dégustés. Encore et encore.

La date officielle de la sortie de mon livre est en février 2012. Si toutefois vous souhaitez acheter le livre maintenant, vous pouvez le faire de suite car j’organise une vente exclusive du livre sur ce site dédié au livre.

Pour l’acheter, vous pouvez cliquer ici.

Je tiens à vous remercier tous pour votre soutien. Je tiens également à remercier David de Davidlebovitz, Clotilde de ChocolateandZucchini, Shauna de Glutenfreegirl, Heidi de 101cookbooks et Dorie de DorieGreenspan pour avoir écrit des notes si encourageantes à propos de mon livre.

J’espère que vous aurez autant de plaisir à lire le livre que j’ai eu à le lire.

J’ai hâte de savoir ce que vous en pensez !

Note: Les mesures dans le livre sont données en tasses/onces et en grammes/litres.
Par ailleurs, si vous commandez le livre ici, la bonne nouvelle c’est que vous le recevrez maintenant et pas en février.

  27. Congratulations! Can’t wait to get my copy! :)

    but have to wait until Feb I guess, since Shipping to Germany is 20USD…

  28. I really waited your book! I can’t wait until February, so I just ordered it now! I’m looking forward to get it!

  29. Chère Béa, c’est une nouvelle fantastique! J’ai déja commandé ma copie: ça fait deux ans que j’attend la publication de ton livre et je suis impatiente de le récevoir… est ce que tu as une idée des temps d’éxpedition? Je sais que je te démande une chose qui, peut etre, n’est pas à toi, ma je n’ai pas compris si la pre-vente est seulement une forme de réservation et on va recevoir le livre en Fevrier ou si je va la recevoir tout de suite (pardonne moi, mais, comme tous les italiens, je ne suis pas accotumée à acheter sur l’internet et je ne comprends pas bien le s conditions d’expedition)

  30. Congratulations! Your words and photographs have been an inspiration to me and I can’t wait to fall in love with your cookbook!

  31. Oh my… I have waited for this moment for so long! The most wanted cookbook right now. Have to check if they ship to Europe as well… Excited! The sneak peek is so promising. And honestly: I’m expecting nothing less than perfect inspiration from you. And no pressure here: you have never disapointed me.

  32. c’est superbe, mais j’aurais une question, les quantités sont-elles aussi indiquées en grammes dans les recettes ? merci !

  33. I just placed my order and can’t wait to get cooking. You must be so proud. Enjoy this moment!

  34. congrats Bea! I just ordered my copy…I’ve checked your site daily for over a year now, your pictures, stories and recipes always bring a smile- can’t wait to have a slice of sunshine on my kitchen counter! best of luck to you!

  35. Congrats! Your book seems really wonderful!
    I wanted to ask you just two things:
    1) if I buy it now on the internet, will I have it in my hands in February anyway?
    2) is it in grams, ° Celsius and so on? Because I hate cups and tablespoons (I’m Italian and I’m just accustumed to grams, sorry!)

    Thanks and best whishes with your book sales :-)

    Teresa

  36. I looks absolutely gorgeous!! I cannot wait to get my hands on it! What a wonderful moment for you…enjoy it because you deserve every bit :)

  37. Félicitations pour cet accouchement pour lequel tu as mis tant d’heures et d’énergie! Ce livre semble vraiment magnifique.

  38. Congratulations, the samples look very crisp fresh and appetizing. Well, it’s definitely going to be hard for me to wait for next February for your book. As I’m living in Switzerland the shipping costs are just a bit too high …
    I love your blog, but to have your cooking style printed on actual paper will make a big difference and certainly make me appreciate your inspiration even more.
    Cheers, Verena

  39. J’ai si hâte del découvrir et je sais déjà qu’il me plaira. Je suis si contente pour toi, congratulations :-)

  40. C’est sur ma liste pour cadeau de Noel (pour moi et amis). Tres contente que ce soit la! Felicitations! C’etait beaucoup de travail! Au plaisir!

  41. Congratulations Bea! I was sold when you first said you were writing it. Can’t wait to get my copy! ; )

  42. CONGRATULATIONS BEA!!! I have been waiting for this for a while! :) I’m so happy that your book will be in my hands soon. My boyfriend just ordered it for me a minute ago for my birthday! I’m a very happy girl right now! :)

  43. Congratulations Bea! I have been following your beautiful blog for years, and I can’t wait to own your new book! Your work is such an inspiration and always energizes me if I am feeling a little low on passion and creativity. :)

  44. Bonjour! est-ce que le livre a été édité bilingue? car si c’est le cas je vais l’acquérir sur le champ! Bravo car ce blog m’inspire beaucoup !

  45. Thank you so much everyone for your kind words, and encouraging notes. I hope you enjoy cooking from it as much as I do! I am sorry about the high shipping cost for the book delivery outside the US. February is around the corner then, eh? For me, it just flies by.

    Merci à tous et à toutes. J’espère que vous aurez autant de plaisir à cuisiner les recettes que moi ;-) Désolée pour les frais de port élevés. Mais on est finalement pas si loin de février, pas vrai? Ca file entre les doigts.

    Caroline, le livre n’est pas bilingue (mais tout est indiqué en grammes et en litres). J’espère qu’une maison d’éditions française sera intéressé pour le faire traduire et publier en France! Merci beaucoup.

  46. Marie-Anne, les copies de Shambhala ne sont malheureusement pas signées pour le moment ;-( Il faut venir à Boston, ou que je vienne à LA ;-)

  47. WOW, felicitations Bea! Ce livre est plus que merite, quel bel accomplissement.
    Je vais m’empresser d’acheter ce tresor au plus vite!
    Merci de partager ta vie et tes talents.

  48. Congrats, Bea! I was waiting for your book for soooo long! finally I can have it! …. and thank you for showing that life has beautiful colors!

  49. Bravo Béa! Je suis une grande fan de votre blog, si beau, avec des recettes vraies et saines, et un art de vivre “inspirant”. J’ai hâte de recevoir votre livre (en février ou avant?). Merci pour tout.

  50. Bea, congratulations! I know this was an all-consuming effort for you, what an amazing feeling to hold it in your hands. You are truly inspiring, can’t wait to see the book!

  51. Bea, congratulations! What a great accomplishment, I can only imagine what it feels like to hold the book in your hands! Thank you for this opportunity to purchase the book earlier than the release, can’t wait to receive it!

  52. Bravo Bea, we’re all so proud of you! This a great story for Aotearoa NZ! How about a down-under edition?

  53. Congratulations, it looks awesome…
    Looking forward to hold the book in my hand…and try out the recipes of course… so far everything that I cooked following this blog has turned out simply delicious!

  54. I’m soooo excited ! it’s already ordered and posted on FB !
    Congrats ! I just can’t wait now !!!! It’s gonna be the perfect Xmas present for everyone!

  55. Félicitations! I’m not surprised at how beautiful your book is. I’ll be ordering a copy today, can’t wait to see it all first hand.

  56. Over a few years ago and I fell for the way you’ve presented everything from this site and the old. Can’t wait to get a copy of your book! Felicitation!

  57. Félicitations, Bea!! I just ordered it and hope it will be here before I move to France next week. It is a perfect gift for my new husband!

    Also, we went to Turks and Caicos for our honeymoon and stayed on Long Bay Beach! It was just as you described and we’ll remember it forever! All the best to you!!

  58. Je viens de faire les muffins aux courgettes et au Comté : ils sont vraiment délicieux et très moelleux. Ça m’a permis d’utiliser ma farine de quinoa et d’amarante qui trainaient depuis trop longtemps dans mon garde-manger. Je ne connaissais pas le fromage Comté (j’habite au Québec), et je viens de faire une belle découverte côté fromage.
    Merci pour l’inspiration, et félicitations pour le livre!

  60. Congrats Bea!! It’s so colorful and seams just like you!! I wonder if I can buy it on internet ‘couse they do’t sell them in Croatia :)

  61. My wife and I have been avid local readers for just a short while now, but we have learned so much. The book arrived at our home today and it is a work of art. From the words to the pictures, it screams you, and we can’t wait to cook our first thing from it. The hardest part is deciding which one! Congrats, and for all of you that have ordered one, you will not be disappointed.

  62. Congratulations Bea. It looks wonderful. Have ordered my copy and should be here after the weekend. Can’t wait. xx

  63. When I clicked over here from Google Reader and saw the first photo in this post, it gave me a chill! That’s how beautiful it is. I can’t wait to get a copy :) Congrats to you!!

  64. Thank you everyone. For those of who who have already received the book, Stephen amongst them, I am *so* delighted and touched by your feedback. I hope you will enjoy cooking from the book a lot.

    And now, for my readers outside the US, I obviously apologize for the high shopping costs. With my agent, we are currently working at drawing attention to the book from publishers inside major countries like France, UK, Australia, in the hope they will want to publish the book in their own country. In case of which, the shipping will be really affordable!

    A tous mes lecteurs francophones, vraiment désolée pour les frais de port élevés. Mon agente littéraire et moi cherchons à trouver une maison d’éditions en France qui souhaiterait publier mon livre en France. Dans ce cas, les frais de port seront inexistants, ou minimes! Je croise les doigts, et je vous tiens bien sûr au courant.

    Béa

  65. I received my copy of your new book yesterday. It is so beautiful!! I tucked myself into bed early and read through much of it. I enjoyed hearing your stories and can’t wait to start cooking.

  66. My copy arrived in today’s mail. What a beautiful book! Congratulations! (Now what should I make first?)

  67. Julia, I am so happy to hear! Looking forward to your feedback!

    Karen, so pleased to hear. Make bouillabaisse or bake muffins ;-)

  68. Je ne doute pas que la traduction française va suivre rapidement. Belles photos et blog toujours émouvant.
    Amie d’Elysabeth je viens me plonger régulièrement dans vos aventures culinaires.

  69. Bravo pour tout ce travail dont le résultat a l’air aussi beau et rempli de bonnes choses que votre blog. Il me tarde de pouvoir le feuilleter…

  70. En fait, je vous lis du Québec au Canada, et je suis certaine que plusieurs lecteurs/lectrices tomberaient en amour avec votre livre. Je vous invite à venir faire un tour dans notre coin de pays un jour, car la gastronomie ici est incroyable. Salutations, Caroline

  71. Hi Béa, I follow you site and recipes from Brazil. I love your recipes and the photos. When I knew about the book, I bought it immediately and it has arrieved last friday when I got home from work. I was so happy that I coudn’t wait to bake something…. I made granola for the next morning and my husband and children said: This is the best granola ever!!! The next day I made Chocolate Tahini Cookies, so delicious….. Thank you so much for sharing your recipes (and life) with us.
    Congratulations and Best wishes,
    Mônica

  72. Toutes mes félicitations Béatrice !

    Cela fait chaud au coeur de voir son travail concrétisé !
    Je vais en commander un immédiatement !

  73. Ah zut, les frais de port sont un peu élevés pour la France, alors, j’attendrai de pouvoir le commander sur Amazon bientôt !

  74. Oh, yay! I can get about half my Christmas shopping done now! It looks beautiful. Just stunning. Hooray and congratulations!

    Hugs to Lulu!

  77. CONGRATULATIONS!! What a wonderful accomplishment, Bea. I’m so looking forward to getting a copy! I love your recipes and photography so much. It truly is inspiring.

  78. Many felicitations on such a wonderful achievemnt Bea. I look forward to receiving this treasure in my hands :)

  79. My book arrived today, all the way to Melbourne, Australia and I LOVE IT! I curled up on the couch tonight and read it with a cup of coffee and a candle glowing beside me. It is a delight. I want to run around to all my favourite places and ask them to stock it for you. I am simply delighted and can’t wait to cook something very soon.

  80. Ton livre est arrive hier! Ca n’a mis que 6 jours pour atteindre Toulouse, ce n’est pas si mal !!!! J’ai hate de pouvoir me poser le bouquiner tranquillement ! Il pleut, le week end a rallonge arrive !!! Felicitations il est magnifique ! Meme une photo des Poulains !

  81. CONGRATULATIONS!! What a ton of work you put into it! What a huge amount of inspiration you are: your pictures, your delicious recipes, your endless enthusiasm for food and your family and friends. I can’t wait to get my hands on your book.

  82. Merci Béa! Je venais te dire que je l’avais commandé déjà! J’ai très hâte de le feuilleter! Il a l’air magnifique!

  83. Great ! Toutes mes félicitations ! Je me doutais bien que tu allais nous offrir ce cadeau un jour. Je ne vais pas pouvoir attendre qu’il soit publié en français, je me ferai un plaisir de fouiller les librairies américaines pour le trouver là bas, dans la langue que tu as choisie.

  84. On the dedicated site for the book there is a typo in the second paragraph:

    “Though her style is largely inspired by her native France, you’ll find array of influences …” Should be “an array of influences”

    FYI

  85. Congratulations!!! It is also a present for all of us, who visit your blog and have shared your life and your passion for cooking and food-styling and nice stories of inspired-daily-life! I will put in my list for next time I visit the US. Felicitaciones desde Buenos Aires,
    Cris M

  86. Congratulations! I can’t wait to own this book. Your blog has been really inspiring. Keep that fire burning!

  87. What a wonderful cookbook Béa!
    I was thrilled to finally receive it, and I can’t wait to try your recipes! By now I have only managed to take a quick look, but I have already made the buttermilk, lemon and poppy seed pancakes, so delicious! They were my priority, since you prepared them for breakfast when you were on vacation here in Chania, where I live with my husband and my six-months old little daughter!…
    By the way, Lulu is sooo beautiful!
    I will be making lemon and honey flavored chicken, and banana, chocolate and hazelnut muffins in the next few days.
    Thank you very much for publishing this precious cookbook, please continue sharing experiences, photos and amazing recipes!…
    Kisses from Creta Island.

    PS. What are these madeleines on page 216?!…

  88. Dimitra, many thanks! I am glad you enjoyed the pancakes. Made them this weekend, once again, too! I love that you made them because you live in Chania. Bring such great memories of us having breakfast in garden, overlooking ocean. Page 216, these are hazelnut madeleines ;-)

  89. Bonsoir,
    Un grand bravo pour votre site magnifique. Je découvre la sortie prochaine de votre livre. Pouvez-vous me dire si les recettes sont traduites ou si il doit sortir en version française en Europe?
    Bonne soirée et bonne fêtes de fin d’année.

  90. Chere Bea, Francaise expatriee a Vancouver, je suis votre blog ardemment et aujourd’hui, j’ai enfin recu ma copie de votre livre magnifique. Il fut accueuilli avec exclamations de joie et soupirs langoureux (au grand etonnement de mes collegues de bureau). Nous sommes jeudi; encore une journee avant le weekend, pour retrouver les saveurs d’une vraie cuisine. En attendant, ces 314 pages illuminent la mienne, de cuisine. Merci.

  91. V. Cela me fait tellement plaisir de le lire. Merci. J’espère que mes recettes vous plairont, et qu’elles illumineront votre cuisine. Encore merci.

  93. wowwww…. your book looks so lovely. I’m not sure in Thailand has your book for sale ^^

  94. Hi Bea,
    I saw that you commented that the photo on page 216 was of hazelnut madeleines. But there is no recipe for them in the book. Was this a typo or omission of sorts? Do you have the recipe for them for those of us with the book that want to make these yummy looking sweets?

    Thanks!
