I bought this book as a gift to my girlfriend after watching that movie...
I wasn't sure what to expect but I can say that I was pleasantly surprised by the content and quality of the book. The text is printed on non-white kind of "old-style" good quality paper.
The recipes are great, and being French myself I discovered many recipes I have never even remotely heard of and a nomber of very useful advices to use while cooking.
As a previous reviewer said, the measurements are the royal UK thingy, and it might be tricky for us metric users, but I've learned before that it is always useful to keep a conversion chart of some kind in your kitchen, so it is not such a big deal. You could also just convert everything online before starting, it won't take much time, unless you plan to cook every single recipe in both books in a record time.
