Fig & Olive Cookbook: The Cuisine of the French Riviera

By Claire Goldman

Take a culinary tour of the French Riviera right in your own home with the new cookbook Fig & Olive:  The Cuisine of the French Riviera from Chef Laurent Halasz, founder of Fig & Olive.  The book includes recipes, entertaining  tips and beautiful food photography.

Halasz's inspiration comes from his mother's table in the south of France.  The recipes feature some staples from the menu such as the zucchini carpaccio, fig and gorgonzola tart, whole branzino with rosemary and apple and olive oil sorbet.  The ingredient list is of the highest quality with tips from Halasz on pairing seasonal produce with region specific olive oil varietals.  The book also embraces the beauty of food with photographs by Harold Gottschalk.  To get your copy go to
