Format: Paperback
One of those rare cook books where everything works, everything is delicious and the recipes are truly worthwhile. I have only two such cook books which stand out from all the others. In the general crowd of cookery books only one or two recipes work and they are really just celebrity products from Lawson, Carlucci, Day Lewis. However, this book particular book has no celebrity about it except the food! The veal in wine and onions page is completely covered with the fatty speckles which only adorn the most satisfying recipes after repeated use. The food is completely classical and correct and if you like unusual or creative food, don't bother with this. If you want to know my other favourite book, you'll have to ask in a review below!

Format: Paperback
This gem of a book, along with Cuisine of The Sun, is rarely talked about, let alone used, anymore and that is too bad because both are truly great & inspired cookbooks.
Cuisine of the Rose has a beef bourguignonne that raises the standard of that dish. Yes, even rivals Julia's. I have been using both books for well over 15 years and so was thrilled to see recent positive reviews.
The recipes work and the writer is grounded in good cooking principles. There is nothing trendy or "hot" about her or the book. But if you want solid classic French cooking thoughtfully presented, if not inspired, then get these books. You will love the results.
I always feel happy about cooking when I open one of these books.

Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
Clear, easy-to-follow recipes, apparently taken from skilled French cooks and converted to portions and preferences for the American home cook and American palate. Good for winter cooking. Explains the French regional cooking origins of the Burgundy area with enjoyable historical and geographical descriptions of regionally local foods. It is a companion book to this author Mirelle Johnston's "Cuisine of the Sun", on French south coastal and French Mediterranean cusine. Ms. Johnston tells of her childhood being raised along the French Mediterranean coast, which goes back to the establishment of Nice and Marseilles (by Greeks). Ms. Johnston has contributed to my understanding of dairy-based and red-wine based cooking greatly. I would buy it again. I may buy another copy to give as a gift.
