Additional Information

The Food of France gives you a real taste of a country that has made food one of the great joys of everyday life. It creates a culinary journey from the restaurants of Lyon to the kitchens of Provence, through the vineyards of Bordeaux to the bakers of Paris, to discover the food that defines today's French cooking: the freshest seafood with herb aioli, winter salt pork with lentils and slow-cooking cassoulet, warm brioche and petits pots de crème.

Beautiful photographs shot in France show how to choose the best produce -- from market fresh vegetables to seafood, regional cheeses, and charcuterie. To partner the recipes, special sections explore the essence of French food and drink. Varieties of cheeses, charcuterie, seafood, patisserie, and breads have been photographed to make identification easy.

Included are sections on such special topics as:

  • Properly ripening a Camembert
  • The baguette
  • French chocolate
  • Enjoying the best of France's wines and champagnes.

I saw this book while window shopping in Anthropology - flipping through and finding the pictures tempting. After getting it from Amazon, I've made 3 dishes from the book, all received wild welcomes from my friends.

This is a wonderful source for dinner parties. Even though it doesn't have a lot of pictures for each recipe, the descriptions are very concise, clear, and easy to follow. Having zero experience cooking western food prior to this book, I did not expect to cook anything descent on the first try at all. I was very surprised to see how well these dishes turned out. A must-have if you love cooking.
This is an excellent introduction to French cuisine. Many famous dishes are here in a straightforward and not overly complex format. This may not be for purists who want the authentic, real deal. But I have found this book a great help in learning how to cook some well-known French dishes. Most ingredients are readily available and the results have been great!
I lived in France for almost a decade.... and apart from the trusty tome that all French mothers give to their daughters when they get married, this book is my other reference, in English, for popular French recipes from around the country. It covers all the favourite and familiar dishes visitors to France will have come across.
