Named one of the best Cookbooks of the Year 2007 by the Los Angeles Times. We may hate to admit it (and never would to the French), but the truth is there is still nowhere in the world where food and cooking are so passionately and intricately woven into lives, hearts, and minds than in France, a country where masterpieces of home cooking are produced nightly, whether for a family supper or chic dinner party. So how does that archetypal Frenchwoman do it? And how can we take a feuille out of her livre? With chapter titles such as "Shops Wisely", "Knows her Classics" and Steals from Chefs", this book will tell you how. Trish Deseine will teach you all you need to master French cuisine: from the top 20 classic French recipes to the latest trends and influences. A superb book from one of France's best-known cookery authors.
