Product Description

Review

This is a veritable cook's almanac with recipes for every day of the year. Think of it as 'Nigel Slater's Kitchen Diary' in a beret! A glorious "I want one of those" cookbooks.
-- The Bookseller

"Reynaud writes stunning French cookbooks like `Ripailles' and `Rôtis'. Alongside Nigel Slater's, his are the best looking books around."
--Waterstones Books Quarterly

"The full-page pictures, month-by-month lists of what's good and range of recipes make a winning almanac."
--Independent on Sunday

Original? Maybe not
Contrived? Possibly
Precise recipes? (You are kidding, right? This is a French cookbook!)
A thing of beauty? Let's not get carried away...

I may have moaned as I diced the Reblochon and I may have cursed a little as the required `750ml Rousanne' turned out to be 200ml too much and I may have even stamped my foot a bit as the '15 minutes or so' turned out to be more like 30...but there is no getting away from the sheer pleasure of eating the end results - this is food that never fails to stun the table into a total and absolute silence (if you get it right...).

Go into this with your eyes open and you won't be disappointed; if your culinary skills haven't moved beyond burning toast and cracking eggs then Stephane Reynaud is unlikely to be your new best friend but if you find Nigella a `walk in the park' then this might just be the book for you.

Will you do every recipe? Probably not (unless you have a particular soft spot for the odd bit of pigeon and a few trotters).
Is the book so wonderfully photographed that you won't care? (I should sincerely hope not - it's a book to be cooked from - not left on a coffee table).
Might it drive you to swig from the Rousanne bottle in frustration? Highly likely.
Will you find yourself dreaming about the chocolate mousse or the roast shoulder of lamb? The soupe de poisson or the pineapple crumble? The Tartiflette or the ginger crème brulee....
Absoloutely, definitely, 100% yes...

This is a really lovely pick up anytime and feel good cookbook, the recipes are easy and useful when you need some inspiration. The layout is simple and the idea of 365 days and thoughts and anecdotes and recipes might have been a bit contrived but it's not at all, the book is fresh and upbeat and really relaxed. The recipes aren't fine dining restaurant ideas, but food for friends and family. There are some lovely photos and funny drawings and it's a book you'll use often I'm sure because there's so much to enjoy.

I've long been a fan of the work of Stephane Reynaud, from Pork & Sons and Ripailles to last year's Rotis, and 365 is yet another belter from the French chef. Boasting a recipe for every day of the year, this is an accessible cookbook for the novice and more adventurous chef alike, with rustic French meat, fish, vegetarian and sweet dishes entertained, all passionately presented with seasonality in mind. What's more, with stunning photography (by Marie-Pierre Morel) and quirky illustrations throughout it's a real feast for the eyes too. Bon appétit!

Format: Hardcover
Although the idea of a dish for every day of the year is somewhat contrived, and I am not normally taken with jokey asides, this works well as a seasonal cookery book.

I cannot imagine anyone slavishly following this for a year, however, there are lots of really good recipes, albeit not always original. The author is French but whilst there is a preponderance of French/Mediterranean cooking, there are things like spring rolls stuffed with salmon, cucumber & sprouting beans, prawn curry, lamb with chilli & coconut milk or Thai salad. I have just been flicking through the July & August recipes for something to eat over the weekend and the following have sparked my interest - mozzarella tart, lamb & basil kebabs, stuffed zucchini, pancetta roasted rabbit, apple & tomato gazpacho, chicken in a rosemary crust, green tabbouleh, chouchouka, and a fantastic mille feuille.

The winter recipes too are fabulous - lots of unctuous stews & roasts like salt pork with lentils, mutton stew, slow cooked pork belly plus dishes such as scallops with leek & chestnuts or scallop & truffle carpaccio. Then there is a ginger crème brulée to die for.

In general this isn't precise cooking in the sense that sometimes things take less or more time to cook than the recipe states, and you may wish to alter quantities to your own taste. In that sense the book may not suit the less experienced cook. The photography is gorgeous which just makes you want to head to the kitchen!

Format: Hardcover
like Monsieur Reynaud, he's French you know. His new book, 365 Good Reasons to Sit Down and Eat is written and presented in the same style as his brilliant Ripailles book which reignited our love affair with French country cooking.
Reynaud's books are quirky and easy on the eye with great photographs by Marie-Pierre Morel and wonderful sketches by Jose Reis de Matos which give the book a real sense of character.

The book, if you haven't already worked it out for yourself sets out a dish for every day of the year with some brilliantly simple and effective dishes from duck terrine to grilled bass with herbs, shellfish hotpot pumpkin gratin and a classic French apple tart.

It's one of those rare books about food which actually makes you look forward to winter with its rustic dishes of slow cooked meats, lentils and root vegetables. I love books like this, I've no time for ego filled books by chefs who can't see past their own nonsensical dishes of foams and e numbers. This is a book which can be used as a word for word recipe or inspiration for ingredients of your choice.
