10912 Get Out

by Stuff Boston  |  January 09, 2012

Many 20-somethings survive on Easy Mac and microwavable taquitos. Not Eléonor Picciotto. This Thursday at 6:30 p.m., the freshly minted BU grad will school the rest of us on how to eat like the Sun King on a peasant’s budget with French Cuisine for the Young & Broke, a talk and tasting at the French Cultural Center (53 Marlborough Street, Boston, 617.912.0400). Now based in New York, the Paris-born Picciotto has been a regular behind the double burners since childhood, when her kitchen-phobic mother would routinely task her with preparing a delicious dinner for the family. Clearly, the blood, sweat and minced shallots paid off: Picciotto’s recently released cookbook of quick, cost-effective French fare (from which the event borrows its name) got props from Entertainment Weekly this December for boasting the “best name for a cookbook.” Not only can we expect an intimate glimpse into the genesis of Picciotto’s book (conceived after a college skiing accident placed her in a cast for six weeks), but also samples of its tasty recipes. Admission is $5 — a manageable cover for the tome’s target demographic, oui? Call the number above to reserve your spot.








About Eléonor Picciotto

I was born and raised in Paris for the first 17 years of my life. Then I decided to move to the U.S in order to study Journalism at Boston University from where I graduated in January 2011. I now live in New York City, try to pursue as much as I can some of my passions such as writing, cooking, traveling, photograph-ing... On December 6th, my cookbook "French Cuisine for the Young and Broke" was launched, I hope you will appreciate it as much as I do. In meantime and the future, this blog is a great tool for kitchen tips, lifestyle tricks, recipes, city guides, press articles ... and many other cool stuff! E.
