Reviews and Praises
“Among the many cookbooks that land on my desk, this one stole my heart immediately. The lovable trim size, the sunny color palette, the inspired dishes featured using every possible kind of citrus… I loved everything about it, and tagged just about every page.”
– Clotilde Dusoulier, Chocolate & Zucchini
“Marie’s beautiful cookbook is a fresh take on all things citrus. It features both savoury and sweet original recipes, the likes of which are approachable and simple, but not boring.”
– Aimée Wimbush-Bourque, Simple Bites
“The recipes are written paragraph-style but, given their brevity, are not difficult to follow – Marie’s an excellent recipe writer, her directions are clear and precise. (…) Even the fancy looking desserts like the Mandarin and Raspberry Ricotta Tart sound so completely do-able.”
– Mardi Michels, eat. live. travel. write.
“(Simply Citrus) is a great book – bright, colorful, beautifully-photographed (by the talented Catherine Côté), and full of fresh looking, delightful recipes.”
– Audrey Le Goff, Pardon Your French
