plancha and barbecue and or salads, Michel Lafon


In partnership with the cooking site Marmiton, Michel Lafon publishes two recipe books perfect for the summer that is beginning.

Tell me about salads offers you 60 salad recipes full of freshness.

As a starter, as a main course for pasta and potato salads or for those with cereals and legumes, there is something for everyone.


Want more originality? Dig into the salads of the world such as the fattouche salad, the real Lebanese tabbouleh, the bo bun or the méchouïa for example. Unless you let yourself be tempted by one of the sweet and savory salads.

Plancha or barbecue in the same collection suggests 60 recipes around the grill with ideas around meat, fish, vegetables and even some desserts.

The book also gives ideas for original sauces and marinades, tips and tricks for using your plancha properly.

Summer may not last long enough!
