Top Customer Reviews
This book surpassed my expectations. The recipes are simple, yet are not things I would have ever come up with on my own. The steps to create the dishes here are very simply laid out, and require everyday ingredients that I can get at my local supermarket, yet use combinations that are intriguing and fascinatingly foreign.
Each recipe has the French name written below the dish's title, and then has a paragraph or more describing how the flavors mingle and work together, with tips for substitutions, and background information on how/ where/ by whom the dish is usually enjoyed.
I was thrilled by this book - I expected it to be a fun diversion with a few inspirations, but the simple appetizers and small meals in this book are just the kind of easy to make but quality fare I most like to cook. This has earned a permanent place on my shelf.
I couldn't help but question the accuracy of these recipes from the outset simply because most chefs of the caliber/type in this book oftentimes can't give you exact measurements for their dishes. Also, why would they want to give away their trade secrets?
In the end I'm left with the sense that this book is more style than substance and I'm so glad I didn't shell out any money for it.
