The Ultimate French Cooking is for both seasoned cooks and beginners who love good food and long to reproduce at home the savory delights of the classic cuisine, from the historic Gallic masterpieces to the seemingly artless perfection of a dish of spring-green peas. This beautiful book, with more than 35 recipes, and it is revolutionary in its approach because: - it leads the cook infallibly from the buying and handling of raw ingredients, through each essential step of a recipe, to the final creation of a delicate confection;- it breaks down the classic cuisine into a logical sequence of themes and variations rather than presenting an endless and diffuse catalogue of recipes; the focus is on key recipes that form the backbone of French cookery and lend themselves to an infinite number of elaborations-bound to increase anyone's culinary repertoire;- it adapts classical techniques, wherever possible, to modern American conveniences;- it offers suggestions for just the right accompaniment to each dish, including proper wines.Since there has never been a book as instructive and as workable as The Ultimate French Cooking, the techniques learned here can be applied to recipes in all other French cookbooks, making them infinitely more usable. Bon app tit.
