Q&A with Joanne Harris ~ #1

Unread postby DeppInTheHeartOfTexas » Mon Jul 24, 2006 6:05 am

Liz and I would like to express our thanks to Joanne Harris for taking the time to answer your questions! :bounce: We would also like to thank you, Noodlemantras, for your great questions and participation in the discussion. :cool:
We will be posting one question each day for 12 days. I think you will find her responses very revealing! :-O #1…

In the book and the movie, Vianne had so many different recipes that she pulled from regularly to aid the people in the village with their lives. You have said that many of the recipes belonged to your own grandmother. I'm curious about the hot chocolate with the red pepper. Is there a recipe for it?


Yes, there’s a recipe. As with many of the recipes from Chocolat you can find it in my recipe book, The French Kitchen, which I co-wrote with Fran Warde and which has Vianne’s Hot Chocolate, the Nipples of Venus, etc, etc plus quite a few of the savoury recipes from the book as well.

Amazon lists her as the author or coauthor of at least three cookbooks: The French Kitchen, My French Kitchen, and The French Market.
