Format: Paperback
This is a fabulous book for anyone interested in fresh French cooking. The recipes are simple and appealing, with most of the required ingredients being easy to locate. Lush color photographs throughout will help to whet your appetite. I've only made two of the soups so far, The Good Wife's Soup and Cauliflower Soup, both of which were divine and very easy and quick to make. The first was a sort of potato-leek-cheese concoction and the second was a big hit with company! I cannot say enough good things about this book.

I was given this book as a birthday present, and was ecstatic. The recipes are lighter than in more traditional use-eight-cups-of-butter French cookbooks, and the photographs are always lovely (and sometimes helpful). The problem with this book, however, is that it seems to have not been read carefully by the editors. For instance, I ran into my first problem while making croissants (p 212), those delicious pastries I have made successfully so often before from another cookbook. The instructions said to bake the little pastries at 225*. "That's LOW," I thought, but I decided to trust the book and bake a portion of the croissants at 225*. After fifteen minutes, when they were supposed to be golden brown, they were instead a very pale yellow, and certainly not flaky or crispy. I experimented with the last two portions of dough, assuming the book first meant 325* and then 425*. Baking them at 425* was much closer to what the croissants needed, though in my oven, 415* was much better. Still, the croissants weren't flaky and crispy like in the photographs, but were instead bread-y (this recipe calls for MUCH less butter than my other one, so maybe that's why).

Another strange and misplaced sentence is in the instructions for the Tarte Belle Helene (p 209). The recipe asks the baker to butter a 9" pan, to roll the dough into a 9" circle, and to pour the batter into the pan. All of this, with the addition of the photograph, suggests that this recipe is intended to make ONE tart. The middle of the instructions, however, reads: "Lightly butter 6 individual tart pans." What? No where else is the tart pan referred to in the plural, and no where else are these six pans mentioned. I believe this sentence was meant to be deleted.

I love this book. It has some wonderful recipes (I have tried several so far and they have all turned out great), and some really nice pictures. This is not French cuisine that is very technical or "fussy". It is more countryside French food and most of the dishes are easy to prepare and rely on fresh ingredients. If you think you cant cook French food this book will show you that you can. I think you will really enjoy it.

I have had this book for a while and it is one of my favorite cookbooks. There are several recipes that have become staples. Most of the recipes are fairly simple except for those that are intended to be more advanced and they are worth the effort. I would recommend this cookbook to anyone who is looking for more rustic French recipes and it does have many of the basics.
