Format: Hardcover
'Only the best combines the secrets of a master chef with a collection of super recipes. It is an invaluable reference book of essential culinary techniques and an inspirational companion that truly demonstrates the art of cooking.

The book is arranged by style of cooking.........
Michel uses classic techniques which he has developed in his own way to perfection, but he also gives each recipe a scintillating modern twist. As well as French techniques, Michel also covers Italian pasta-making, Japanese tempura, Chinese poach-roasting and other international methods.'

192 shiny quality pages, with ower 130 recipes, split over main chapters:-

1. Marinades/stocks/sauces
2. Raw and cured food
3. Eggs, crepes & soufflés
4. Mousses, terrines & confits
5. Pasta, grains & rice
6. Steamed & poached dishes
7. Grills, roasts & bakes
8. Pan-fries, sautés & deep frying
9. Casseroles & slow cooking
10. Baking

along with an introduction, store-cupboard essentials and a full index.

Each chapter has a useful description page and handy notes head up each recipe, e.g.:-

'Tabbouleh
Here is a innovative way to serve this popular Middle Eastern dish, which I adore making, especially when I am in Provence. Like risotto, there are countless versions, my favourite is intensely lemony and full of fresh parsley and mint.
It tastes even better the day after it is made.'
Each recipe has a clear ingredient list, method, and, if applicable, a variation on the theme.

Bought this book as i have grown to admire Michel watching him through Masterchef..and i am damn glad i did. have always had a great interest in cooking and baking but since i am now a stay at home mam i have much more time to dwindle in it..this book is perfect for someone like me with an interest but maybe lacking certain knowledge..he explains lots of different tasks, lets you in on what equipment he uses and some of his favourite tricks...well worth having and i am now seeking my next book from him!!!

For some time I have been a huge fan of the Roux `family'but this book is one of the best productions that has reached the market. As a chef the insperation the book has given me has helped me to bring my little Restaurant to the number one spot on `tripadvisor'for our area. The book makes it so simple to follow the wounerful dishes and produce fantastic food. While I am sure Michel makes money from his books I believe it is not enough reward for all the pleasure he gives with the knowledge he shares.
Very well thought out recipes,
Fantastic combinations,
All the basics you require,
A wonderful shareing of 3 star knowledge and a life time of experience.
will always be very greatful. How about another?
