This is a wonderful collection of authentic French recipes written by specialists who have kept in mind the home cook and have presented the recipes in a way that will make anyone confident enough to make them.
Anyone who has been to France knows how good the food is. From the most expensive restaurants to roadside cafes, it is obvious that the French are passionate about their food. This is a gastronomic tour of this food-obsessed country from the bistros, patisseries, markets, farmhouse inns and restaurants, lavishly photographed and enticingly written. The slices of savoury pissaadiere and sweet apple tart, the paper-thin tuiles and creamy bavarois, the world famous coq au vin and boeuf en croute - all oozing off the sumptuous pages of this attractive little book. The recipes for all the above and many more are clearly explained allowing you to bring "A Little Taste of France" into your own home. Your fingers will be itching to ring the ferry company so you can go and discover for yourself the culinary wonders of this neighbouring country. From the mountains in the East to the sun-drenched hills of the South, the harsh coastline of the North to the tiny fishing hamlets along the Atlantic coast, all are explored and beautifully photographed. A great little cookbook and a great little travel guide, this a two-in-one, inspirational book for all Francophiles. - Lucy Watson
