Gramme, a contemporary cafe in Paris's trendy Marais neighborhood, offers stylish casual food that is comfortable in its French roots and confident enough to venture beyond tradition.
In this compact, handsome book you will find classic favorites such as celeri remoulade, bun choucroute, and tartines champignons de Paris, all presented with appealing simplicity.
But Gramme also serves a bahn-mi dog made with pulled pork, Serendipity caramelized apple cake (the restaurant gives them their English names), and crumpets de mais—corn crumpets—topped with caramelized bacon, a cultural crossing if ever there were one.
Some very interesting ideas, all within reach of a casual restaurant anywhere in the US or Europe.
Hardcover. Color photographs throughout. In French.
