Arranged by courses or food types, from hors d'oeuvres through desserts, the book presents 125 authentic regional recipes. In addition to the above-mentioned dishes, readers will find recipes for other beloved standards, such as soupe a l'oignon gratinée, confit de canard, and soufflé au chocolat; they'll also discover superb less-familiar dishes including cotriade (Breton seafood in broth), volaille fermière au vinaigre (farmhouse vinegar chicken from Alsace) and épaule d'agneau à la Catalane (Catalan-style shoulder of lamb). A chapter devoted to foie gras, frogs' legs, snails, and truffles is a particular pleasure, and will inspire readers to produce (with a cooperative pocketbook) such delights as seared foie gras with green grapes. With informative sidebars that place the dishes in context and more than 400 color photos, the book is a complete evocation of its rich subject as well as a working kitchen companion. --Arthur Boehm --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

Well I broke down when I saw a LIKE NEW copy for a very nice price.
When the book arrived I was thrilled. It looked brand new and was an absolute pleasure to page through it, and I noticed it struck a nice balance between authenticity and getting overly detailed (like Mastering the Art of French Cooking is by now [though for its time this was necessary]).
One after the other, all the classic dishes seem to be here. Awesome. But what takes this further is you're not just mindlessly following the recipe, you're learning a little about the dish, the area, and times along the way (like the French grandmother who uses a little potato starch in her vinaigrette to keep it from separating).
This is one of the few books (and I buy cookbooks like a junkie getting his next fix) where the book actually exceeded my expectations, and where I found myself putting Post Its on one page after another and looking forward to trying the recipes and filling in the holes in my French repertoire.
I highly recommend this book.
