FOR BÈATRICE PELTRE, creator of the award-winning blog latartinegourmand.com, gardening and food go hand in hand. She writes fondly of both in her captivating new cookbook, La Tartine Gourmande, in which remembrances of her native France complement vibrant images of fresh summer salads, delightful pastries, and hearty soups. When photographing her recipes, Peltre frequently uses accessories from her own home. “I always show a little beyond what’s on the plate,” she explains. For Peltre, these colorful iron chairs from Anthropologie are so striking (“They are a little like bistro chairs, but with a higher sense of elegance”) that she could see them in her kitchen, her garden, and even her next book.
