Notes From Your Bookseller

A cookbook that’s as much about the experience as the meal itself, Big Heart Little Stove is a celebration of Erin French’s famous restaurant, The Lost Kitchen. With recipes that range from appetizers to entrees, this is a book that invites an entire atmosphere into your kitchen as you cook along with a culinary great.

Big Heart Little Stove is your new go-to inspiration for cooking thoughtful yet simple meals. With personal stories, her favorite hospitality "signatures," tips for cooking, presentation ideas, and audio-exclusive interviews (with Ina Garten & more), Erin French-author of The New York Times' bestseller Finding Freedom-invites listeners to bring pieces of her beloved restaurant, The Lost Kitchen, home with them.

With tips and tricks French has used in her own dining room-at home and in the restaurant- along with audio exclusive interviews with Erin's mother, Deanna, her co-worker, Ashley, her husband, Michael, and her dear friend, Ina Garten, this extended edition is your invitation to get inspired and use what's around you to create meaningful moments, from setting a table with found treasures, to adorning dishes with edible flowers, to thoughtful gestures such as offering a cold cloth on a hot day. Full of warmth and spirit, Big Heart Little Stove will show you how to create more joy and connection around your table.

With dishes pulled from French's family recipe box and the menu at The Lost Kitchen, ranging from irresistible nibbles; to luscious soups; to heaping platters of family-style salads and sides; to show-stopping main courses; this extended audio cookbook has all the tools you need for assembling a seamlessly special meal. And to round things out, there are beverages to sip as dinner comes off the stove and desserts to make your guests feel truly looked after.

Regardless of whether it's a dressed-up affair or a quick weeknight meal, French's recommendations are the same: Start with the best ingredients you can find, keep it simple, and serve with love.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

"I love Erin French’s simple, elegant food. This gorgeous book is filled with recipes that I’m going to make over and over again!"
—Ina Garten

“I would say it tastes like home, only it’s better… delicious seems like too puny a word to use under these circumstances.”
–Harry Smith, The Today Show

"Big Heart Little Stove... guides readers through recipes that go beyond simple instructions to include the small touches that make a meal feel special."
The Cut

“...the recipes read like the ones we all wish our grandmother had handwritten and passed down to us. They are written by a homecook for a home cook—meant to be made and shared again and again.”

“Any home chefs looking to host a joyful, delicious dinner party need look no further than the lovely Big Heart Little Stove.
–Shelf Awareness

JANUARY 2024 - AudioFile

Celebrated chef Erin French shares glimpses of her Maine past and the familial roots of her favorite recipes, as well as ideas and temptations from her renowned restaurant, The Lost Kitchen. Her recitations of her recipes are both engaging and perfectly paced. One could cook while listening, though the recipes are handily indexed at the end. Interspersed are unscripted chats with her mom, a co-worker, and her friend chef Ina Garten. The ding of a kitchen timer, pages rustling, or a pepper grinder denote a recipe or an invitation for listeners to add their own touch. French's candor and genuine tone create an intimate atmosphere that will convince listeners that her magic can be re-created in their own kitchens by drawing on quality ingredients served simply and with love.
