Frame of reference about me: I am a self-taught cook since 1997. However, I had always wanted to take an extended course, at least a week in France as that is the area of cooking with which I am most familiar. After a lot of research, I chose Marjorie’s course in Burgundy.
Marjorie comes with an impressive culinary history. What particularly interested my was that she studied at La Varenne under Anne Willan. I chose to take a 5 day course with my brother. Kendall’s knowledge of Bourgogne wines and cheeses is extremely impressive. We spent about 6-8 hours each day, cooking, talking, and learning.
Because they are so careful to choose products that reflect what is in in season, you only get to cook a portion of their recipe catalogue when you work with them in Beaune. With this book, I now get a whole collection of the recipes, beyond what we were able to make during the week with them.
She trained with some of the best, and it’s reflected in the recipes. Also, because she works so closely with local producers and artisans, she has all their knowledge at her disposal.
This is an outstanding book from an outstanding chef, and the only thing that could be better would be to go back to make more of the recipes with her.
Her cookbook arrived today and I can't put it down. The photographs are beautiful and inspiring. Her story of how she began and introductions to some of her favorite food purveyors are a joy to read. The recipes not complicated and easy for any level cook. I can't decide which one to start with.
Bon Appetit! Jeanne
The recipes are beautifully authentic and highlight traditional French foods in their seasons. In addition, the authors highlight local vendors. I think it’s a nice touch.
I thought this cookbook was a bit pretentious when I first started flipping through but it’s not at all. It’s just lovely. I reference it as much as I do all of David Lebovitz’s Cookbooks.
