Review: One Pot French: More Than 100 Easy, Authentic Recipes

Joined Mar 11, 2007
       With the recent surge of interest in Julia Child’s French cooking manifesto, it makes sense that other French cookbooks would also experience a rush of interest. And with scores of new or inexperienced cooks wanting to participate in the French cooking renaissance, a book advertising French cooking in one pot certainly catches the eye. French cooking has a reputation for involving difficult showpieces, so any cookbook that can make it simple and easy, while still keeping the taste, is worth quite a lot.
            The only problem with this proposition is that the recipes in this cookbook are not all made in one pot. This appears to be a bit of a misnomer, but fortunately the recipes do follow the premise of being quick and easy. It is a bit unfortunate that the cookbook couldn’t have been more appropriately named, as some readers will definitely feel deceived, but as part of a set of “one pot” cookbooks, this slip might be forgiven.

Not all of them, Sirlene. I'd say about 98% have accompanying photos. The food photos are mostly by Gareth Morgans, who did a very nice job, IMO, supplemented by a few stock images.
