Clotilde Dusoulier

Morsels

Zut!

By Brett Ascarelli


Unless you are an avid reader of this paper--meaning, you pick it up as soon as it leaves the hands of our dedicated delivery folks--you are going to miss this event. Our apologies, but we just found out about Clotilde Dusoulier's arrival. The Parisian Dousoulier, 27, started our favorite French food blog, Chocolate and Zucchini (www.chocolateandzucchini.com), shortly after returning to France after two years in Silicon Valley during the dotcom boom. Laden with her own recipes and food writing, Dusoulier's blog is casually well-written (in English), as if it weren't her second language. Better, it's full of beautiful jpegs--glowing French-toasted brioche, pink praline chocolate cake, you get the idea--taken by Dusoulier (above) herself. Now her first cookbook, Chocolate & Zucchini: Daily Adventures in a Parisian Kitchen (Broadway; $18.95) has arrived. Make haste and meet Dusoulier on Wednesday, May 23, at a three-course, prix fixe dinner and book signing at Bovolo. 106 Matheson St., Healdsburg. 6:30pm. $25; reservations required. 707.431.2962. For those who will inevitably miss her in Healdsburg, Dousoulier appears May 26 at the San Francisco Ferry Building as well.
