5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliantly simple and effective dishes, 28 Dec 2011
This review is from: Stéphane Reynaud's 365 Good Reasons To Sit Down To Eat... (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.
