If you love French bistro cooking then you may want to consider adding Bistronomy to your cookbook collection. In this unique cookbook, author Katrina Meynink offers a fascinating compilation of 100 bistro recipes from 30 international chefs.

The book is the result of a grant Meynink received from the Culinary Institute of America back in 2012. This allowed her to study bistronomy - a term that blends 'bistro' and 'gastronomy' and commonly refers to French casual dining (in other words, Michelin-quality dining without the white tablecloths).

Bistronomy highlights Meynink's findings and offers recipes, menus and compelling stories about her journeys. The dishes come from all corners of the globe - from Paris and London to Copenhagen, New York, Sydney and beyond. 

The cookbook "captures the vital elements of Bistronomy - the democratic spirit of generous, affordable hospitality, and the imaginative reworking of classic fare built on quality ingredients and technique," according to a description by the publisher.

Bistronomy goes on sale October 9th. Pre-order a copy on Amazon for $24.18.
