Format: Paperback
I was given an hardbound copy in 1973. I used several of the recipes for intertaining. My quests were delighted and so was I. As one of your reviewers had said that most recipes were high in "butterfat" content. But that is the way with "French" cooking. I highly recommend this book to all "Francophile" cooks and chefs. It is a pleasure to read and experience.

I just noticed this title while browsing through the Amazon cookbook section. I've owned this book since it was first published maybe 20 years ago. It is one of the most charmingly written cookbooks I've read and the recipes are delicious, though quite high in butterfat. I thinks it's worth reading just for the "charm" aspect.

Format: Paperback
I have loved this book for almost 30 years. Simca (Simone Beck)does believe that each meal should be a coordinated "event". One of my favorite menus is titled something like "An Autumn Lunch after a Brisk walk in the woods with friends". She starts off with garlic soup, which is not garlicky at all; in fact, it's nutty and sweet. But her main course "Pork Sylvester" is probably THE most requested in all my repetoire by family and friends. It is by no means "quick"; in fact, it is time consuming, labor intensive, but not difficult due to Simca's clear instructions. A must for all Francophiles.

Just keep this handy at the kitchen table to read at random and smell the flavors of a 40's French kitchen.

Book is in very good condition for printing in 1972. Simone Beck co-wrote 2 famous books with Julia Child so I was pretty sure she would write a very good French Cookbook, and she did. I really like that she has listed complete menus such as "A Country Dinner" or "A Chic Little Lunch". I love the old fashioned drawings thru out the book and I read each little story with delight. After reading Mastering The Art of French Cooking i'm not afraid to tackle some of these meals.
A great addition to my collection of cookbooks.
