THE BEST.. makes me want to lock myself up in my kitchen and cook through the entire book!
I own a great deal of elaborate, well presented, beautifully illustrated cookbooks of all kinds, but Dorie Greenspan and her books (the two I now own) are the ones I trust the most. I am sure that, just like "Baking from my home to yours", there is not one recipe in this book that I will try and not be rewarded with a scrumptious dish, dessert or delicacy of some kind.
Thank you for one more lovely book Dorie Greenspan.

Format: Hardcover
I bought myself this book with some birthday vouchers I was given. I live in the UK and had never heard of the author. However, I can confidently say that this is one of my favourite recipe books - in fact it's more than a collection of authentic French recipes; it's a sprinkled with anecdotes of Dorie's time in France and in particular, Paris. This transforms it into as much a diary as a cookbook and I not only use it as a cookbook for trying out new recipes, but I just dip in and out of it when I need a dose of Parisienne life and culture! It's introduced me to Dorie and her work and it's been a fantastic present to me from me!! Highly recommended.

Format: Hardcover
At first I was quite impressed with the book, and gave it 4 stars because I didn't own many cookbooks at that time. However, after comparing to other cookbooks I now own, I think the book is just okay.

Pros
-It is sprinkled with Doris' anecdotes from the time she lived in France.
-Each recipe has some introduction which helps me understand where the dish is coming from and on what occasion it is served...It feels like she's talking to me
-The recipes have the ingredients that I can find in the supermarkets easily (most of the ingredients I use on the daily basis anyway).

Cons:
-Not a lot of pictures of finished products.
-Recipes are okay, I have not yet found anything particularly tasty (I tried about 5 recipes including the asparagus salad, veal marengo, pork with orange, etc)

Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
I must confess Dorie Greenspan is a name new to me. I bought this after seeing enthusiastic references to it on Eat-your-Books. In the past I have been disappointed with many books in this genre; Patricia Wells particularly, and on reading the cringeworthy list of acknowledgements, worthy of Gwynneth Paltrow at her most tearful, was ready to mark it down. On dipping into the book however, I was very impressed; over 300 good do-able recipes, ingredients that are obtainable this side of the pond with a few easy substitutions, cup measurements certainly, but usually for sensible quantities - only one for cup plus tablespoon of flour, a pet hate. A good addition to the groaning shelves!

Format: Hardcover
This great big heavy beautiful cookbook is so much fun to read and to enjoy the photographs. I've enjoyed reading it so far and look forward to cooking from it too. She's very good at understanding the differences between American cooks and kitchens and marketing and the French equivalent so that we (Americans) can get the correct results. I have given this book to my Italian granddaughter who loves to cook and we are going to share our French Table experiences with one another by email and that will be lots of fun I think. The dessert section looks so great and I'm going to make something from it for a New Year's Eve party.
