The Day Louis Was Eating / Le jour où Louis mangeait.


This visually stunning, bilingual book is an eclectic collection of recipes from across the globe. Louis is Emma’s 8 year old son, and he is a gastronome and he is always hungry! Emma has created a wide variety of recipes adapted to a busy life. She emphasises using local and seasonal produce and encourages the reader to adapt to their own local produce. All of the recipes are tried and tested, and are easy to recreate at home.


You don’t need to be a parent to buy this book as the recipes are suitable for all ages. However, if you are, Emma offers fun tips for introducing a wide range of tastes and flavours to the young palate. Written with humour, each recipe has a story. Creatively designed and beautifully photographed this is a visual feast for both the eyes and the stomach.


Although less about wine and more about food than her previous book Emma does offer the occasional wine pairings and musings. Emma worked with new designer Sofia Luce Gallo for the creative design and, as with A Taste of le Sud, artist Garth Bowden for the photography.

    Magnifique livre de cuisine, très bien illustré. Les recettes sont originales et savoureuses, comme toujours avec Emma Kershaw.
    Je suis très satisfaite de mon achat et je le recommande à tous les gourmets petits et grands.

  2. Clare

    I’m English, my husband is French, this is the perfect cook book, regardless of who is cooking the results are perfect! So many fun and tasty recipes to choose from… although the crispy duck with pancakes remains a firm favourite!

  3. Michael Hedrick

    Another fun and very good cookbook. At our house, we’re enjoying the comfort-food recipes in this one. Relaxed and fun food. Delightful stories. And we feel like we know Louis pretty well now!

  4. David Bylund

    We’ve been to quite a few of Emma’s wine and food tastings, which means we’ve had the good fortune to meet Louis. We bought this fun cookbook full of kid-friendly (and, really, everyone-friendly) recipes for ourselves and for our food and wine loving friends. Chorizo, lardons, black olive and red onion pizza, anyone?
