Most Helpful Customer Reviews
Cyril Lignac, with his refreshing attitude and poster boy good looks, is often hailed as France's equivalent to Jamie Oliver. He was voted the country's favourite chef, has television programmes, cookbooks and a healthy eating revolution to his name. Lignac worked with the likes of Alain Passard, Pierre Hermé and Alain Ducasse, before going solo with his own restaurants, which are celebrated for their modern twist on traditional French cooking.

Bistro Cooking is a homage to his Saint-Germain des Prés restaurant: Le Chardenoux des Prés. The book showcases Lignac's contemporary take on traditional French bistro cooking. Packed with Arthur Delloye's lavish photographs from the restaurant, this book deserves a space on your coffee table before the pages are spattered with wine and cream!

The forty recipes, based on the restaurant menu, are neatly organised into starters, mains and desserts. The instructions are easy-to-follow, with clear labelling of the preparation times and, most satisfyingly, each is accompanied by a crisp full page photograph of the exquisitely presented dish.

Starters are brimming with flavour, but most (save for the odd slab of fois gras) are mercifully light. To whet your appetite, imagine Carpaccio of Sea Bream Flavoured with Citrus and Espelette Chilli Pepper: the components can be prepared in advance and assembled when ready to serve. Burrata with Ligurian Olive Oil and Grilled Vegetables is characteristically unfussy, but rich with the flavours of aubergine, artichoke and courgette. The twist on the classic French bistro sandwich, the Croque-Monsieur, requires a little planning (refrigerate for 8 hours), but is easy to prepare as a hearty starter or, for those with a smaller appetite, a delicious weekend lunch.
