5.0 out of 5 stars New Bistro
This is, quite simply, one of the best cookbooks I have bought in recent months. Not only is this a delight to look at (the photography is excellent) it is also easy to read as it has a laid-back informal tone to it. The recipes are excellent - so far the quail with grapes and the rabbit with tarragon and mustard sauce have both been excellent. You won't be...

'New Bistro' looks lovely, has great, characterful photographs and a nice chatty tone, but it's more of a travel guide for those who like eating in nice places than a cook book for foodies. There are a couple of excessively generous references to the Michelin Guide (as though they were sponsors) and the introduction to the book sets a 'lifestyle' emphasis which is reinforced by the slightly casual recipes. You get the impression that these haven't been tested at home, or selected on the basis of any idea about who might read the book or want to use it. At one extreme they include canned and prepared ingredients that some will prefer to avoid, and at the other, a bizarre recipe for a whole turbot poached in champagne. If you're after a really good book about how to cook the best of French regional cooking, Anne Willan's Country Cooking of France is the book for you.Country Cooking of France
