Cookbook is a welcomed addition to my collection. We loved eating at Le Bec Fin and miss the quality and presentation of Perrier's dishes. Well written, clear instructions, and little tricks and/or ideas to improve recipes. After visiting France recently and ate simple and delicious dishes, I value King George's book even more.
I was so proud of Georges when he was in Philadelphia, and followed his career. I love this book! Since I now live on the west coast it is so comforting and wonderful to see the photos, read all about him, not to mention those superb recipes and photos! In spite of it's sophistication, it is still a user friendly book. Tells us how to make Demi-Glace for the Fillet of Beef recipe BUT also tells us where to order it if we don't have time to make it - takes at least 12 hours. I have such respect for him!! We had our own 5 star Restaurant in Philadelphia. BRAVO Georges for all you have done!
This is one of the best cookbooks I own. I have often dined at Le Bec Fin and there is simply no comparison in Philadelphia. As far as the cookbook, I routinely prepare the Poached Turkey recipe (always to raving reviews), the Scalloped Potato recipe and the Lobster Bisque recipe for holiday dinners. The Lobster bisque is absolutely fantastic and the best I have ever tasted and it came from my very own kitchen. Tres bien!!
Over the years, I have made many of the recipes and, even though they can be somewhat complicated sometimes, the results are just superior. This is truly a special cookbook. I own at least 75 other cookbooks and this is one of my favorites that I go back to year-after-year.
