5.0 out of 5 stars A must-read, and not just for new mummies!, 21 Dec 2005
Clever, witty, beautifully illustrated. What a breath of fresh air after all those "mini-books" (you know the ones, near the till at bookstores) that are none of the above. Try it, you'll like it!

5.0 out of 5 stars Delectable delights!, 8 Sep 2004
This review is from: French Food at Home (Hardcover)
After reading countless number of cookbooks where the recipes go on and on, it's refreshing to come across Ms. Calder's succint recipes. Whilst a few of the recipes may not be for the complete novice, most could be managed by anyone with a bit of a brain and some coordination ;-)
The head notes are witty and engaging, making you want to cook this dish or that one. And she has clearly grasped the importance of the little things that the French value, as her page on salad shows.
While many other cuisines are more fashionable at the moment, this book shows that French cooking can be modern, delicious and most importantly, imminently do-able. Get this book, you'll enjoy it for its recipes and more rarely in the culinary literary world, its writing.
