From the Back Cover

Simone "Simca" Beck is known to millions of Americans as Julia Child's French partner in the creation of the two classic volumes of Mastering the Art of French Cooking. Simca's Cuisine offers up her own delectable recipes - the ones she most treasured form a lifetime of cooking creativity that made her one of the great cuisinières of her day. Here are recipes that were inspired by old French family specialties found in her mother's and grandmother's well-thumbed notebooks; recipes that grew out of Simca's life in the provinces (particularly Normandy, Alsace, and Provence), where she gardened, cooked, dined out, and entertained - simple delights and fabulous concoctions all set down with a beautiful clarity. Skillfully adapting French ways to American needs, Simca's Cuisine presents over one hundred recipes in thirty-one alluring menus designed for every sort of occasion, from the informal "earthy dinner for high-spirited friends" - centered around a cassoulet with duck and hot sausages - to the ornate "spectacular dinner with champagne" that begins with salmon or striped bass in brioche. (6 X 9, 368 pages, illustrations)

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.
